Schalk Brits angered at cynical play by Kahn Fotuali'i

I don't care, it's a cheap penalty and in this day and age we're heading into the world of soccer faster than we realise.

Rugby is full of situations that get fucked up... I myself have run into the 9-10 channel of my own team and cocked up an apparent fantastic move (yeh bollocks)... so the scrum half had to adjust... but if it's an opposition player then it's just simple to milk it. Brits was retreating on the short side of the field - rather than the obvious large open side, and was not trying to interfere at all. Had Brits been running back along the open side, then sure it's the more obvious side in this situation - but he runs back on the blind side.

Next season, the move is, 9 reaches base of the ruck, looks around to see retreating players, runs at them and passes the ball at them because they were in the way... you know it's wrong on all levels.

See what I mean about the business of rugby...

When I make a comment about split second decisions when players jump and get up ended, it's all "defend the jumper for player safety"... I make a comment about sportsmanship in this example but it's all about defending the split second decision... Spirit of the game is being lost right before your eyes...

Hard to argue against anyone here really....

Wayne Barnes "might be a bad law but it's the law"..... very true... can't blame him for upholding it...

Fotualii ...hard to argue against him using something like that as a chance to get 3 points in the business of rugby...

Brits... hard to argue him going ape as a result of horrendous sportsmanship.


Going forward, I think if the law is to remain then it will become a job for the TMO to review whether the path of the pass was realistically going to a team mate, or whether he just threw away possession...

Oh, if he was going to get a 10 match ban, I'd say it was a red.... Also reading the description, they say they will support him through his ban, how much support can one get I wonder? For instance he'll be 29 when he's done his time...Nearing sort of end of career time there, plus the game will have changed to a sport where we run round gently dusting each other with glitter and kisses..Whilst of course wearing goggles do as not to get any glitter in our eyes....

Meh lifetime ban would be fine here, I mean it wasn't the worst bit of violence I've ever seen, but it was completely uncalled for and the guy definitely doesn't have his head on right.

I wonder if the original card was going to be yellow or red? Would be immense if it was a yellow...

Schalk Brits brilliance in Man of the Match performance for Saracens

Like the hookers of old, basically a short beefy wing... Rather than today's version of a 3rd prop. Nice to see.

Nonu take note. If you're going to do something to get yourself carded, accept it...

Ma'a Nonu gives his own version of Nigel Owens' "This is not soccer"

....A French referee, refereeing two French teams, in France, doesn't understand English????? That's bloody ridiculous, fire him!
