Romulo Acosta banned following Edinburgh vs Treviso brawl at Murrayfield

I'm a bit confused, who was defending themselves? The scrumhalf got involved in the scuffle, so that is why he got a card... and the prop started the whole thing, so that's why he got a card..

Very eloquently put.. Can't disagree with anything you wrote there.

Dylan Hartley facing hefty ban after red card for elbowing Matt Smith

I was very keen to see this video as I had heard about the incident and heard about the 'holding back'..

I'm actually a bit of an advocate for giving someone a shove, or semi strike for holding however this to me was another situation altogether. The whistle had gone... the game was on pause therefore being held just rolls into a bit of an irritant rather than a threat to your team etc. So in this instance I have to say "what a clown"...

and come on, that was an elbow all day long, there was no way that was ever going to be a flailing arm and the elbow 'just so happened' to catch the player... the forearm extension after the initial contact was purely theatrics at that point!

Bloke never seems to learn...

Best thing to do would be to try and get hold of Billy 12-trees....your team would undoubtedly dominate due to the sheer over powering numbers...

Dan Carter signs huge 2015 deal with Racing Metro in France

Don't get me wrong, I often enjoyed seeing the likes of Toulon fielding a group of all stars, Saffa's, Brits, um... others... (I'm not going to start wikipedia-ing, my 'fact' up there..)..

But I think now I've read about the proposed challenge to the salary cap by UK club teams, it does sort of highlight how potentially farcical the whole thing has been..

I mean, the word 'Premiership' sounds too much like a football word, so I tend to switch off (my brain that is), so I actually have little idea on the workings of the different 'titles' in Europe - I just enjoy a damn good game! - I rarely know where my own team stands in the our table, let alone league. I play each team as if it's a final - when it turns out to be a promotion game then I tend to have a rough idea whats going on...

So, with that in mind, excuse any ignorance I'm about to spout, as it may already be in action. I feel that perhaps UK teams should have their salary caps (to promote in house progression) perhaps there can be an increase in the cap for seasoned home county players (England players in England clubs, Scots in Scots, and so on..) in order to keep them from following the fame and pennies of the good French life, however still have an overall cap for everyone else. THEN let the French do what they want, and every now and again go and have a crack at them, but with the attitude that "if we lose there is no great expectations because we're playing an international side"..or something like that...

I mean, lets face it, if Bath had a game against the All Blacks, they'd want the win, they'd believe they can win, but they'd have a damn good understanding of the situation and lack of expectations if they did lose the game...

Actually not a bad formula there stroudos. Not to mention a large amount of business deals are done on the golf course... so there is potential there too...

...just make sure they keep an eye on the weather, lightning might come as a bit of a shock..

100 million euros??? that's over a million a week?!?!?

Not sure why anyone bothers with education anymore...

If/when I have kids I'll turn to the dark side and fill the kids room with soccer paraphernalia... Won't have a bloody clue what it all is, but it's worth spending every penny on pushing for soccer because if he turns out to be a diver; sorry, soccer player, then I'll have a sweet retirement!
