Tavis Knoyle punches Leroy Houston in dramatic Gloucester vs Bath derby

It's in the clip. Houston was mocking him on the ground, pointing at him with his finger and letting him know that he was the reason they'd been awarded a penalty try. I guess the frustration just got to him and he let rip with the punches.

I completely agree. I think commentators, especially ex-professionals, have a responsibility to continue to treat the referee with respect. There is a big difference between explaining why a referee might have made a mistake and mocking him.

I know Healey has to foster his reputation as an outspoken pundit, but for me this is a no-go area. We should show no tolerance for it in our sport.

Sebastien Chabal's big driving tackle leads to sneaky Ricky Januarie try

I thought the same. He looks like a vets age group scrum half! Only thing missing was two knee braces and the grey hairs...

Thanks for your reply. I guess if he'd been blinded by pepper spray then I can understand. I still have no idea what the hell she thought she was doing there. I know that it's not really on for a big guy to hit a woman, but likewise it's not on for a woman to hit a guy, whatever his size. She was just asking for trouble.

Overall, that particular punch aside, a pretty shameful end to a cracking game of rugby.

I saw the highlights earlier on when a friend shared them on facebook, and what a game, but...

Commenting only about the assault in the final video:

Fucking hell. What the hell was she doing wading into the middle of that? The bloke properly clocked her in the face, and surely he knew who he was punching. Clearly she could only have been an irritation and didn't deserve that sort of response. Hope the guy ends up with some sort of punishment as a result.

Disgusting episode. For me it tarnishes the whole collection.

Regardless of who got punched, a public fight following a game is pretty low. This should be the time for mutual respect and a few beers, not this sort of bollocks.
