Sam Egerton banned after being red carded for eye rake in Varsity Match

Mate, what are you on about? When did the ABs last stick their fingers in someone's eye? I can think of a few similar incidents that went unpunished in the last couple of yeas

Rougerie on McCaw
MacLaughlin on McCaw
JdP on Moore

How does that fit into your conspiracy theory?

Brian O'Driscoll's pass through the legs sets up Luke Fitzgerald try

I misread the titled as was expecting to see him pass through the legs of someone else to set up a try. Now that would have been impressive! Between his own legs is good enough but a bit of a let down considering my expectations.

Sonny Bill Williams on Rugby League vs Rugby Union and life in general

I could be wrong but he probably converted because his manager Nasser is Muslim. There were a few other Muslims at the doggies over the years so maybe it happened back then but first i heard about it was when he was refusing water while on his first tour to SA during Ramadan.

Nasser also managed Anthony Mundine, who converted and has himself converted Blake Ferguson a few weeks ago. I wouldn't be surprised if Quade Cooper "came out" and announced he had too.

The Barbarians sweep aside Fiji in entertaining fixture at Twickenham

That one and i wonder if le Roux's awful offload wouldn't have happened if he could see some colour besides black and white behind him. Surely they could have just ordered some other jerseys at fairly short notice.

Irish hearts broken by All Blacks' last gasp converted try

I suspect the refs have started cracking down on the early charge in the last couple of years. At the world cup it was getting ridiculous, teams were making an early charge then stopping but enough in some cases to put the kicker off. SA did it to JOC and it worked and almost cost them the QF, I have a feeling Kahui did it in the final too but it didn't work.

Cruden isn't a good enough kicker to include a dummy run in his routine. Anything he does would be to make sure he kicks the goal. If Ireland are misled, unfortunate and i see your point, but it doesn't mean Cruden is doing the misleading

Willie Le Roux stars as the Springboks beat Scotland at Murrayfield

Around 4:30, love it, the forwards all "don't hold me back" and finally walk away and you realise Lambie was hidden in the middle of it keeping the peace.

Wing JP Pietersen's big tackle on Eighthman David Denton

Can you imagine if that was McCaw/Cooper instead of Denton/JPP. There would be total chaos on this site and Quade might have his kiwi passport revoked! :)

Shirtless Brian Lima leads Samoa in Siva Tau wardance vs Ireland

Yeah, I also get really bored during those one minutes of silence to respect the recently departed. I'd much rather hear the commentators talk total drivel.

Shirtless Brian Lima leads Samoa in Siva Tau wardance vs Ireland

Do you think the Irish feel foolish for singing their anthem with pashion every time they are beaten by NZ? I doubt it.

I can't imagine they were thinking about the game or the result, they were thinking of Fats and i thought it was a nice touch for one of their "elders" who played alongside him to lead it

New Zealand Maori All Blacks start tour well with good win over Canada

They "rebranded" last year so the Maori and Sevens (and maybe the junior, probably not the women) became All Blacks as well. I assume it was done to increase their marketing value as it all happened at the same time as the AIG sponsorship.

Quite a few of the forwards wearing blue boots too. Liam Messam recently in an interviewed mentioned that Richie gave him the death stare when he was considering putting on a pink training shirt. Only for the backs he was told. I haven't noticed if the AB forwards wear fancy boots or not
