Highlights from Week 4 of the November Tests

It would have bloody backfired if the French won a penalty and took a quick tap leading to their usual trick - alternative rugby commentary:
"9 to 10, 10 miss pass to 13, 13 pass to 15 coming into the line, 15 behind the back pop pass to 14 hit back on the angle, 14 to 10, 10 short ball to 11 on the inside, 11 cuts 12, 12 dummy to 10, 12 behind the back pop pass to 7, 7 into contact FIGHT, someone loses a testicle, 10 calls his wife, 14 sends a text to the girlfriend, 15 sends a text to 14's girlfriend, FIGHT, French hooker scores"

Elliot Daly suspended for 3 weeks after red card for dangerous challenge

I know a little while back (early this year maybe?) They trialled some new law variations at college level where by they had a free catch law... Looked shit imo....

But as you say it's a tricky situation.

I think it was Jared Payne vs Goode maybe? Where Payne clearly had eyes on ball as he was running and Goode jumped to catch it... And all Payne did was run face first into Goode's arse, but he get a red card for it....

Calum Clark banned for 3 weeks for elbow on Donncha O'Callaghan

To ban Picamoles this close to the incident would make too much sense.... they'll just wait a few months and then do it...

Are the All Blacks a dirty team? Fans divided after battle in Dublin

Interpretation is the problem when it comes to the money in the game. All of a sudden someone like Callum Clark is getting a weak ban for breaking someone's arm when an average player would or should be looking at a lifetime ban!

The lawyers they have will twist and turn every loop hole until it literally becomes a case of "your honour, I'm aware that my clients actions of striking a prone player in the face with their genitalia doesnt look good, but there is no law against this" when we all know that certain actions just deserve punishment but the legal eagles know how to work the system!

Are the All Blacks a dirty team? Fans divided after battle in Dublin

Dear lord that is a clutch at straws! Imagine studying all 15 starters plus the bench bunch all the day or two before the match when the teams are actually finalised so that you know what each and every player does!

I can't even comprehend how ridiculous it'd be!

Sam Cane cleared while Malakai Fekitoa receives one week ban

Pretty much what the game already has, and in different elements of it (punching etc), it just doesn't get applied in the same manner and players continue to do what they do regardless of the laws ...

WIN a copy of brand new Rugby Union Team Manager 2017

Does it have a deep dark underworld part to it as well? Where you can plan blood gate scandals? Throw matches for extra perks? and perhaps murder someone and bury them beneath the pitch?

Calum Clark banned for 3 weeks for elbow on Donncha O'Callaghan

Hahaha you might not be far off, I can imagine the conversations, "bill you're rubbish at this, everyone in RD said it was probably a fair ban! Mike is still the master, the French are going bananas at his bans!"
