James Horwill cleared after alleged stamp on Alun-Wyn Jones in first Test

I would love to know if Brett Gosper will announce that the IRB plans to review the case and find a way to get Horwill banned. He did the same to get Adam Thompson a longer ban for a gentle tap to a Scotsman's head

Alesana Tuilagi straight red card for high tackle on Jean de Villiers

It was bad and I don't have a problem with a red as the team at least deserved one for all of their cr*p. But Basson only got yellow v Italy for a high tackle. Surely the refs could simplify things - high tackle = yellow, always.

New Zealand come up trumps in hard-fought first Test against France

When I first thought it was missing, I assumed he was trying to do a Jonah and shave his number into his eyebrow but with 12 being more intricate than 11 he made a mess and shaved the whole thing off.

But I have a feeling I read somewhere that he bleaches it. He made a comment once that he doesn't want to be a follower, which might explain the eye liner before and now the eyebrow. I guess he's a young man under the spotlight and trying to find his own identity

Lions prop Cian Healy cleared of biting scrumhalf Brett Sheehan

A lot of people saying because there was lack of evidence of a bite that Sheehan should be charged. Where were you all in 2005 calling for O'Driscoll to be charged when there was a lack of evidence in the aftermath of him having his shoulder busted. Lack of video evidence doesn't mean it didn't happen

Jonny Wilkinson absolutely smashed by huge Opeti Fonua

The Tongans have no respect for the laws of physics. They produce Jonah, a winger bigger than most loosies, then this #8 who is bigger than most props, and Taumalolo, a prop who scores more tries than most wingers. Sick

The Top Five Best 'Fatman' Tries of all time

He's not so fat but what an incredible front-rower try. Couldn't the commentators at least get a little excited about it?

He could have died!

Quade Cooper wins first professional fight with first round knockout

If SBW thought he was the mutt's nuts before the fight, he knows now that he's not. He fought well, better than I expected, but he hopefully realises now that he's not as gifted in boxing as he is in rugby. Time to focus on back-to-back rugby league and union world cups

Ian Keatley clearance kick hits Wayne Barnes square in the face

Since 2011 I think we've gotten over it but it's still a reflex to smile when we this video.

And yes, the French are just as upset about Joubert (go youtube and check some of the comments about the final), although maybe not as much as the saffers about Bryce

Is Carlin Isles the world's fastest rugby player?

You can't just put on seven sprinters and expect to win. It might work at first but other teams would figure it out quick enough. You'd potentially have poor defence, poor ball retention at the ruck and other teams would eventually learn to close you down. Was interesting to see the NZ #11 was oblivious and gave him too much space but would have learnt not to do it again. In the same way that a sprinter can just run sideways then straighten to get around a slower player, a bigger player could do the same to smash through a sprinter.

Don't worry, skill will prevail. I hope, or us Kiwis have a bleak future
