Joe Marler escapes ban for forearm strike on Wales' Rob Evans

I can understand your view point Dan, only issue is, as you mentioned many people may have missed the apologies and will already be using 'gypsy boy' as their new insult. The issue however I would have with dragging this incident through the mud and publicly flogging Marler, is that those that missed the news about the apology would surely miss the details of Marlers public abusing.

As for the traveller lad, that's the joys of 'travelling' I guess... has a fall out, travels somewhere else :p

The child is not to blame, however sometimes travellers make a rod for their own backs.

Ma'a Nonu cited for massive no-arms hit on Grenoble scrumhalf

Hah! I sort of thought it sounded a bit insulting after I'd written it, but honestly I meant it more like, had them professionally interpreted and therefore explained as to where exactly the line is...

....but I'm happy for it to be read either way as the guy has shown up a few classless acts over the years.

Ma'a Nonu cited for massive no-arms hit on Grenoble scrumhalf

I think what Nonu has done here, is read the laws, or had them explained to him and basically done the bare minimum he can to satisfy them...

It's like when the wife says to hoover the floor and you skim over parts of it, or the more obvious bits of fluff.... technically you've hoovered.... just not well and not the entire floor....

Nonu feigned and attempt to wrap in the most lackadaisical fashion and it hasn't carried off, although I'd imagine a lawyer will take stills from the video and highlight areas with a big marker where Nonus arm is slightly more forward and justify that as "ladies and gentlemen, an ATTEMPT, to grasp!"

With Eddie! I would never suggest it's acceptable 'language' however the victim was satisfied with the results, (marlers apology) and in a gentlemens game, if two adults can clear this up then we have a special thing going on!
