Bryan Habana issues apology for taking a dive in Heineken Cup Final

Funny, I thought his dive in an attempt to get a penalty or even get Farrell sin-binned showed that he was absolutely not above that kind of action. Seeing as, you know, he did it.

Damn right he should have apologised. Quite simply one of the most disgusting things I've seen on a rugby pitch for some time. Dump/tip tackles are dangerous, but you understand why they happen. Gouging is the worst but thankfully is extremely rare. Diving? Absolutely disgusting. Habana should be thoroughly ashamed of himself and I hope that the players around him will have the courage to tell him what they think of it. Habana is now officially a 'cheat'.

Toulon defend Heineken Cup title with comfortable final win over Saracens

I remember seeing it live, but I'm still seething at Habana's disgusting dive. In this clip it's at about 4:30.

I'm tired of seeing this guy's antics. He's done this in a few games now, and I think it is absolutely appalling that he's doing this on this stage. As far as I am concerned this is worse than throwing a punch when the adrenalin is flowing. He is purposely trying to deceive the referee into sending a player off, which is just not on.

I would be absolutely delighted to see him being given a card for this sort of bullshit.

Jean Deysel suspended for three weeks for stamp against Crusaders

@DrG - the truth is I added the names of O'Connell and Hines to my post because I was worried it'd sound racist. #FirstWorldProblems.

If 'how's your father' was allowed on the pitch then Courtney Lawes, Paul O'Connell and Nathan Hines would be even more terrifying enforcers.

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.
