At least he didn't urinate on a drunken police dog. Yet.

VINE: Fight for ball results in US College rugby player slammed

"And in a championship final when the score is 12-12 and one minute to go she makes this call."

If it was a championship final then why would you lift the player up? Ok, he was holding onto you, but you stood and dropped remarkably quickly. You also pushed his leg up and backwards over your shoulder.

You can complain about the referee all you like, but you made it easy for her.

England run riot to rack up their highest ever score against the Barbarians

Because the ones who aren't in the running for the national team don't make the headlines?

He didn't drop him, the player didn't land on his shoulders or neck... which rule would he have been given a yellow over? Just being a generically 'dangerous tackle'?

Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

Possibly, but that wasn't how I saw it. He still took those punches well. I'd have been on the floor whimpering if he'd just looked at me funny.

Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

I agree with the consensus about the cards, so this is a separate point. I've got to admire du Plessis here for his reaction to this. Watching him get hit six times without punching back is really impressive. I know he started it and a yellow is right, but he looked fucking hard as nails taking those punches. He barely even reacted. The guy is impressively tough.

Smarter than Dylan Hartley is not high praise. My Springer Spaniel is smarter than Dylan Hartley.
