Francois Steyn red carded for attempting to take Johnny Sexton's head off

Not surprised to see François Steyn involved in a stupid decision which cost his team.
He also shot during a Myler penalty attempt few months ago.

Unlike the majority, i find it's a severe red card as Sexton was passing low, but any head clash is now considered as an automatic red so..
I would say yellow for this reckless tackle, but i would give red for Steyn commenting ref decision.

Two players singled out in French second division mass brawl

Yes, a good "générale" but not so ugly after all.

Found this one, i like its war reporter style:

Need motivation for this afternoon? Some french rugby good "words".

Tusi Pisi sees red for in the air challenge during breakthrough Bristol win

We can't critic refs to apply the new world rugby laws.

Even if these laws are good for players safety, do World Rugby really expect players to watch the ball, watch the player, evaluate his speed and care about the player fall... at the same time?

I predict others controversial red cards during the 6N.

Connacht snatch win over Wasps after new law directive calamity

Terrible piece of referring. It proves a serious lack of authority or lack of laws knowledge.
But to be fair, we are all a bit lost with new world rugby directives since 1 year, so some rare mistakes happen and will continue to happen.

Very harsh for Wasps, but it would have been also unfair to overturn the connacht result. They simply played the ref incompetence and may would have score after a scrum or a quick tap.
