Shocking footage of vicious kick during college rugby match leads to arrest

Bloody hell, can anyone see what caused him to do that? I've tried tracing the player back in the video but can't see anything on camera, maybe it happened as the team in black were chasing up the kick?

Sekope Kepu sent off for shoulder charge as Scotland thrash Wallabies

As much as I'm against vunipola here, show us the angle where you can see contact with the head? Doesn't matter if you do or don't like him, it's speculative..

Sekope Kepu sent off for shoulder charge as Scotland thrash Wallabies

Oh yes, good point, you're right, I remember a few of us figured there must have been some contact, but all the camera angles were; as you said, inconclusive..

Very close call however..

Sekope Kepu sent off for shoulder charge as Scotland thrash Wallabies

Because Poite choked... That should have been a red.. I remember watching that unfold, first clash with Barrett was penalty/talking to worthy only... But that second hit SHOULD have been a red if we're talking consistency. I can't remember SBW's red now, but I remember thinking the kiwis have the right to be awfully sour after one or the other incident (whichever order they were...)

With this incident, I dunno if I'd go yellow or red... More than a penalty I reckon, but maybe a red is right, (certainly right in this day and age).. I guess like Mako's, nothing was right about this... Arm tucked in, diving off feet, away from the ball, shoulder to head.. nothing about this was in any way salvageable!

WATCH: Zimbabwe rugby tribute as country celebrates promising future

I know if they've moved to SA as youngsters it must be hard for them to look back, especially if they have family, friends and a life in SA, but it'd be incredible if some of these top SA Zimbabweans could head back and be involved in upping the game in their country of birth. Maybe SA rugby could do some sort of partnership coaching program or something.

The problem with the whole situation is that it will take players to sacrifice their professional futures by staying at home to create a trend... The problem as i see it is that the move to SA will be far too obvious a choice to refuse (if you have the goods), but that will only go on to encourage more up and coming youngsters to emulate these old heads and follow them.

Maybe starting a super rugby team? Or having some annual fixture against a big name like SA etc..

Waisake Naholo escapes card after taking Stuart Hogg out in the air

As much as I love supporting the under dogs in big games like this (so a red card or whatever would have been a great help), this was only ever a penalty at best... No need for anything else..

Rob Horne's high shot and tip tackle combo leads to two yellows and a ban

Not to justify the referees actions, but we did have that video not too long ago where the referee played the "what if" card by suggesting that had an opponent not put his arms out, he'd have landed on his head/neck.. so maybe this was somewhat applied here!
