Manu Tuilagi apologises for 'bunny ears' prank on prime minister

Bit of harmless fun. If they only took one photo, well, maybe a bit silly but they were snapping away so why not have a laugh. Sure, if it was the Queen it might be seen as disrespectful considering she's an older lady but I would hope the prime minister could have a a laugh with the boys.

I know John Key would see the funny side of it but then he's special. Afterall, not every prime minister makes the list of top ten most awkward handshake moments

Ian Madigan low blow in painful Impact Gumshield promo video

Definitely planned. His reaction wasn't one of cheeky evil laughter but like he'd done what he was told to do. We wouldn't be watching this if he'd aimed for the face - unless there was blood

Ronan O'Mahony back heel flick sets up try for James Coughlan vs Edinburgh

It looked like he was waiting for the bounce but it never came so he then goes to put the flick in with his right foot but misses and then by some fluke gets the perfect bounce off his left. I'd put it down to luck, same way his little heel kick vs wales was.

Who was it that said "the more i practice the luckier I get?"

You mean Kevin Mealamu? Did you see the game or just hear if from someone at the pub?

Rupeni Caucaunibuca playing well after returning to the ITM Cup

Looked like an exciting game considering it was between two average teams and ended in a draw

Two Argentina players cited after eye-gouge and biting claims in Mendoza

Have you seen the full match? In the 32nd minute Slipper shoulders Woodcock instead of tackling him. It's almost exactly the same as the Nonu shoulder on Slipper. There are so many shoulders used each game that it's very rare they get cited. Except Butch James' but his usually involve trying to take someone's head off at the same time

Two Argentina players cited after eye-gouge and biting claims in Mendoza

At 1:08 it almost looks like a chomping motion. He grabs the hand down, I assume to stop him from gouging him, then instead of pulling his head out goes for a bit of a nibble then pulls away.

Re-read my comment above, I never said anything about banning Eben. I said if they ban Senatore, who bit to stop a choke, they would need to ban Louw, IF he bit to stop a gouge. But I'm not saying they should ban Louw if he did it in reaction to a gouge.

And I can't be expected to explain why he held his head like he'd been kicked. The Argentines seem to have a similar flair for the dramatic like the French.

All Blacks retain Bledisloe Cup with Wellington win over Wallabies

The ref says "2's never come out of the 10". Once Genia kicks, anyone in front of him (offside) must retreat 10m back from where the ball is going to land. Genia or another onside player can put them onside but until that moment they have to make an effort to retreat. By the time it landed, Mowen had put Moore onside but he had already stopped by that stage so was considered not retreating enough. It was borderline really but seemed like the right call

That's my take on it anyway

Difficult situation really. If they ban Senatore for biting when EE was choking him, they'd have to ban Louw for biting Matera during the gouge. Not exactly the same circumstances but not too far apart.

I'd like to see another angle of what Steyn's doing with his thumb. Considering all the biting going on, I wouldn't want to be tea bagging a guy
