Alesana Tuilagi banned for 5 weeks for 'kneeing' Japanese tackler

Harumichi Tatekawa really should have been banned for face butting him in the knees.

Wales come from behind to beat hosts England at Twickenham

Oops, posted this in the wrong thread earlier...

This YouTube video (England 25 v 28 Wales - Funny Interview) seems to be doing the rounds at the moment. :)

South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales

Not a fan of Liam Williams, as soon as I knew it was him that made the tackle I knew it was all over.

The tackle that was needed to stop Hendricks is something that you see Halfpenny doing on an almost daily basis although Halfpenny has picked up the nasty habit of making try line tackles with his face for some reason.

New Zealand complete series whitewash as Savea gets hat-trick vs England

The All Blacks are looking good at the moment but they still look a long way from their best. I'm fully expecting them to be on top form by the world cup.

Wallaby skipper James Horwill cleared and free to play in deciding Lions Test

You can, irrelevant of the position of the head he stamped on it's the responsibility of the person in control of the feet to ensure they don't stand on it.

It's much the same with lifting somebody when you tackle them, irrelevant of whether you meant for their feet to leave the ground it's the responsibility of the tackler to ensure they land safely.

Schalk Brits suspended for three weeks for striking Owen Farrell

Brits was clearly wrong in what he did but him being wrong in what he did doesn't in any way make Farrell's behaviour acceptable.

He's a shadow of his dad in all areas and Andy Farrell will surely be embarrassed by the way his son acts on the pitch.

Farrell junior is a liability to the team as he has the temperament of a child which you can't afford to have in such a physical sport. He also played as poorly as he did against Wales so I just don't understand why he's there.

Dylan Hartley out of Lions tour after allegedly swearing at Wayne Barnes

Hartley was by far the biggest surprise of the Lions squad for me, he's a decent enough player but he's a constant liability to any team he plays for.

He's far more of a risk for his own tea than he is for the opposition.

I hope his team and the RFU both deal with him appropriately.

Midweek Madness - Ben John scores a bizarre Ospreys try

More than anything, what I can't understand is why the hell would Iannone WANT to take that quickly from there with all those players standing around?
