Sergio Parisse red carded and banned for insulting referee

I agree with Guy, he'd said enough afterwards to suggest the red was justified. But as a Welshman it's a shame, because Parisse is an outstanding player, and assuming Wales win this weekend, his absence will have taken a little of the shine off it.

Sounded like he was a product of Rugby's first civil partnership.

Junior World Championship 2012 - Day Three Highlights

Looking forward to the Wales / NZ rematch.
That's harsh - to qualify as top seeds and then have to play the Blackness again in the semis.
Still, I don't think the win was a fluke. If they have the self belief they will do it again.

Wales seal victory with late kick in Six Nations thriller against Ireland

What a hit on the Irish outside centre to set up THAT off-load for JD's try. Bowe had some gorgeous moments too. Bradley Davies' tackle was way worse than Ferris'. SF was a bit unlucky, BD was very lucky. The back-row battle was immense and BOD badly missed. Two great teams very closely matched giving everything. The best match I've seen for ages.

Will Skinner red carded from the bench as Harlequins beat Toulouse

Totally fair Jimothy, but I think you'll also find there were no Welsh players insisting they were being unfairly targeted by officials/the media/a Queenstown bartender/ the Auckland harbour authorities...

Will Skinner red carded from the bench as Harlequins beat Toulouse

Notice how all those who think "everyone does it" support English teams. That could explain why England get so many yellow cards and suspensions and think they are being unfairly targeted.

Quins and Leicester are are both well known as cheating teams. It happens in lots of teams, but it's usually spur-of-the-moment stuff. For it to have happened twice in one match smacks of it being a top-down strategy.

How embarrassing. You've got to feel for the guy.

Richie McCaw knee on Morgan Parra, Donald kick, Rougerie eye-gouge, and more

Sorry to hear you've had some abuse. I've been following for a few years and still haven't noticed which nationality you are, so don't let it bother you.
