Actually Oliver, pretty sure I said I felt Brown made the most of the impact, milked it, if you wish... So it wasn't no one in here, as you claimed. I personally think you come on here with a chip on your shoulder ready to defend to the nth degree any French compadre...

Lool at the Hartley incident, the majority of 'English' (of you assume that's what they are) fans, actually said it was deserved of a red card, some brought into question the possibility of that it may have been an accident, which is only natural given the fact it's a very strange thing to do when you've been behaving yourself for the last 13 international matches..... But still, no one suggested it should have been anything other than a red.

I understand your frustration, but I also suggested in this video that no one but Pape knows the answer to whether this was a fake incident or not....

So much like Dan I think said, lets all take our international shade specs off and condemn any sort of footballesque simulation!!!!

Oh it was a killer slap and well deserved but Thompson 'stumbled' and fell over in a manner that many actors would be proud of, but I still feel to this day his reaction was 100% genuine! Think it stunned him massively!

Not much to say on cracking tries..... They are what they are... Great...

A game of rugby is played and tries are expected... We don't hurrah teams that run onto the pitch at the start... (Of course I'm not really suggesting the tries are that unimportant, but we expect them) someone gouging, punching, biting, diving, or the occasional bum poke, is considered controversial and unexpected....therefore there is a lot of talking surrounding it...

Haha, never have shame, I've probably been stepped a couple times by one of your like-minded 10's when I have been in that seek and destroy mode..... Highly embarrassing... Just a shame that referees are accepting "I was committed less and less these days"

That was my argument Felipe, the problem is as a group we are the ones who need to police this, not World Rugby, because it's a further grey area.

I posted a link above to Rory Kocketts red card for a slap to the face, I don't believe the other player 'dived', but really you never know, it might have hit Pape perfectly ...and let's say it did hit him in the perfect spot, imagine how pissed he'd be when he stood up and found himself on the end of a yellow card for playacting! (Haha)... Obviously cue jokes about how he should toughen up etc, but joking aside, it's a real headache for any official!

I know that because Stringer is a terrier, but point still standing, if a small bloke gets this treatment, then is it ok if he falls?

I actually saw the link that you pointed out. One is a complete and utter filthy scumbag, and the other is Hartley! Both SHOULD be reprimanded, but only Hartley will...
