Joe Marler could be in trouble again after appearing to kick an opponent in the head

Marler really needs to improve his banters, because Connor O'Shea bad jokes are stealing the show.

Silvère Tian banned for MORE THAN A YEAR after Referee abuse

Whatever his madness moment, it's a deserved sanction.
I think the severity is certainly due more to the threats than the insults.

Only time and other 'verbal abuse' cases will tell us if this sanction was exemplarily heavy
or the new norma.

But if it can shut some mouths, perfect.

Crowd get involved in Biarritz and Béziers juniors massive off-field scrap

So the "fact" there would be more brawls involving french players on Youtube, would mean there is mathematically more fights in France than in other countries? Interesting..

I'm not here to defend these violent incidents (both clubs will be sanctioned by discipline committee) but i thought RD posters would make the difference between the old-fashion "rugby de clochers" and professional french rugby, unfortunately not.

Not a dig at French rugby? A generalization maybe. It always depends about the adjective coming after the word "french".

Crowd get involved in Biarritz and Béziers juniors massive off-field scrap

I won't write a paragraph or list the numerous cases of rugby fights all around the world.... i'm just bemused by the first RD line "It can only happen in France" and your last one "fights appear to be more prevalent within French rugby".

I don't deny that brawls often happen in french derbys, especially in Federale or in young club sections, but this cliché to constantly pick and isolate french fights as case studies, make me ironically smile.

"The french rugby is violent" because medias like to present french rugby as the most violent one.

Wasps score epic try then snatch victory at the death through Piutau and Gopperth

Wasps are clearly the most entertaining side of this cup.
The semi vs Saracens will be a cracker.
Shame the stadium was half-empty for such a show...

Courtney Lawes demolishes Owen Farrell with another trademark tackle

A perfect "make the 10 think" tackle.
Regarding Plisson or Farrell, i wonder why fly-halves never dummy and spin around, as Lawes always anticipates the first pass like a bull.
