The Shortball from Rugby HQ - Round 14

Agreed, it was just a light-hearted dig at the fans' favourite, Mr Steve Walsh.

Salesi Ma'afu banned for one week for punch on Tom Youngs that went viral

Tuilagi got a one week ban for punching Ashton three times to the head, but had to take four weeks off to recover from the monster hangover which resulted in about 2 million people all buying him beers.

Chris Ashton shouts 'push it' as Nick Evans attempts conversion kick

Ignoring the fact that I disagree with virtually everything you said, I like the fact that your post resembles poetry. Just wanted to thank you for your postmodern layout and liberal use of the enter key.

Wolonel, I'm sorry to jump in, but I think Ashton is an ARSETHREE-QUARTERS and Farrell is an ARSEHALF. Someone like Hartley is an ARSEWHOLE. Happy to help.

Chris Ashton shouts 'push it' as Nick Evans attempts conversion kick

I was at Twickenham with a school group and a small handful of kids started whistling during a penalty kick. Before any member of staff could get to them, a stranger in front of them (all 6'6" of him) turned around and said "We don't do that here." in a thick Northern accent. They didn't do it again. We, the staff, had a word as well but they'd learned their lesson.

Yes, some people do shout and whistle during kicks, but thankfully those individuals are reasonably few and far between. The absolute norm is 99% of spectators watching quietly and applauding if it goes over.

Well, the fact that his voice was the only one in the whole stadium says it all.

Dear God, I'm worried I'm about to go there, but in Association Football (as I believe the devotees of the game call it) you commit a professional foul for shouting 'mine' without shouting your name...

Jean Deysel suspended for three weeks for stamp against Crusaders

There is no way the guy holding on needs a red card, but a yellow card - certainly. It is indeed a professional foul.

I don't believe anywhere in the above comments has anybody justified the act of stamping on someone's head, simply pointing out that the person holding on (and committing an offence) has gone unpunished.

I assume nobody is trying to justify stamping because it is so obviously wrong in this instance.

The Shortball from Rugby HQ - Round 14

I am a novice. I keep forgetting to make the points I want to make. Clearly despite the decision, Horwill should keep his mouth shut until he gets into the changing room... even if it is Steve Walsh.
