Niko Matawalu beats Stuart Hogg in footrace to deny him a hat-trick

Fair dinkum to the other fella. He's put in a fair bit of dodge and shirk for that piece of meat, and if Hogg didn't have the ham and eggs to get there first then fair play. They're still mates at the end of the day, just two blokes having a bloody good ding-dong and nothing a couple of tinnies in the near and far after the game wouldn't fix. Jeez-Louise, if someone tried that on me I'd have to give him a big old German band, fair play to 'im.

Outcry as Florian Fritz returns to play after severe knock to head

The player doesn't need to be brought to book - he was almost certainly concussed at the time of the 'offence'.

Outcry as Florian Fritz returns to play after severe knock to head

Bullshit. The coach has a duty of care to his players. Medical protocols exist in order to add a safety net, not to remove all responsibility from educated adults. The coach could clearly see the guy had taken a severe blow to the head, there was claret everywhere, and he wasn't up on his feet immediately - far from.

A professional coach, knowing what we now do about head injuries, would have not let him back on the field. The man is an absolute fool and/or completely negligent.

Digby Ioane manhandles Bryan Habana in tense Top 14 clash

I couldn't agree more.

Regarding your last paragraph, I'd add that if a player in rugby ever lays a hand on the referee or blocks him from something, he gets a yellow immediately. The captain has the right to a certain amount of chat with the referee, and this should be entirely to the referee's discretion. Some like a bit of chat and it helps with their game management, others don't, but I don't want to see players arguing with the ref.

One habit I don't like, but is creeping in, is the player who shakes their head when they've been sent from the field. They can go bat shit crazy in the changing room, but until then they should keep it to themselves. I've seen kids at our school copying this when they're not happy with a decision, and it shouldn't be tolerated.

We sound like a pair of properly grumpy old men.
