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.

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.

That's true, but we like to get all the mileage we can out of opinion here.

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

Yup, he has now spent 54 weeks of his career suspended. What... a... bellend.

Biting.
Punching.
Elbowing.
Head-butting.
Swearing at a referee.

The man is a total liability in high pressure games. Move on, drop him for good.

Jonny May starts and finishes brilliant length of the field try against Connacht

The problem is that this won't cut it at the top level. The fitness there is another level. A great try, but not one I'm keen to see him attempt to recreate for England.

Dylan Hartley facing potential ban after alleged headbutt against Saracens

Dylan Hartley has, I believe, spent 50 weeks of his career in the top flight on suspension. If he gets a ban here then he will probably have spent over a year of his playing career as a suspended player.

It looks to me like he's going to get himself a ban. As Eddie says, he has previous and he's not going to get any time off for good behaviour.
