South Africa U20s skipper Jeremy Ward suspended for two weeks after dangerous challenge

Lucky it was only a yellow imo, I guess the subsequent ban is world rugbys way of saying it was a cock up by the referee and it deserved a red card...

Spain shock Samoa to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics 7s

Hell of an effort by Spain, I don't know how long they'll last in "the big league" but what an incredible feat to break through. I'd imagine it'll do wonders for the sport.....providing the zika virus doesn't come and ruin it all for us all...

Bok-lash earns South Africa an incredible comeback victory

I think given Paddy Jacksons get up and go attitude, Ireland are onto a really handy fly half... I felt Sexton was going to be a really awesome player for Ireland, however in recent years he seems to have just developed a Ronan O'Gara miserable agro attitude chip on his shoulder, coupled with a bit of drama lessons... which all in all pisses me off...

Surprised it wasn't a blood bath given the recent Argie rugby activities and the typical French style.... :D

Should Waisake Naholo have been yellow carded for taking out Liam Williams?

Also totally agree on losers draw card, Ireland couldn't beat SA with 15 men, so they got one of their guys sent off to make it easier..... -_-

Hey kiwiguy, little lesson for you, stick around and you'll realise we often comment on what we see with regards to the law! I personally don't feel Naholo jump clash requires anything at all, but in the eyes of the law (you heard the tmo) Naholo was reckless...so reality is, it's probably yellow card worthy....

Tell that both eyes on the ball thing to Jared Payne when he was red carded for a similar incident on Alex Goode...

Should Waisake Naholo have been yellow carded for taking out Liam Williams?

On the high ball...

I'm not sure, I can see Williams being red carded and banned for one week for that reckless play...
Then again Naholo could have been red carded and banned as well...
Then again Williams looked like he was feigning injury on the way down as well, so I'd red card and ban him for that...

On the shoulder check..
Again, Williams threw his head back and fell to the ground in an "appeal" fashion, so I'd red card and ban him for that...
Naholo shoulder check was a bit silly, penalty only....

However all the above is purely speculation until I see the Dan Biggar cam... in fact, maybe just whatever Dan Biggar says....

England win in Melbourne to take first ever series victory in Australia

oh you're right regarding the points, that amount of possession should definitely have yielded far more points than it did.

Although a slightly different kettle of fish, Scotland went through a phase of getting on top of the on field battle at times, yet never converting it to points because of the inability to finish.

Hopefully for Australia they won't fall into that same funk...

England win in Melbourne to take first ever series victory in Australia

Regarding the errors and possession stats, are they somewhat skewed? 24 errors to engs 10, just over double right? But with more than 3 times the possession you're bound to make more errors?? Just like I've never lost a game of aussie rules....why? Because I've never played it before....
