Owen Farrell yellow carded for knocking out Dan Robson with sickening clash

I do agree with you there Oliver (hooray!!), I think perhaps as above, silently commending might be a bit better... but I wouldn't hop up to Farrell and pat him on the back about it..

What I want to see more of, is players accepting situations and walking away, rather than appealing, or moaning, or shaking heads and grunting etc etc.

As for your spelling, honestly your English is far better than my French! :)

Willie le Roux survives horror landing as Jason Emery sees red

Fortunately he kneed himself in the face... I guess that's what stopped him biting a chunk out of his own arse....

Erm, Silvere Tian?

I agree perhaps it's odd commending something that should be a given, such as "Well done scrum half, you put the ball into the scrum straight".....yeah, seems odd...

But I see what Dan is saying, we've had too many antics creeping into the game of late and I suppose someone walking off when they feel they've not done wrong is a show of respect towards the official - which should be somewhat commended... evenly silently...

Yellow card is probably about right if we take into account that players have an unwavering duty of care to others...

Looked painful though!

Joe Marler could be in trouble again after appearing to kick an opponent in the head

Until the following morning when the police were investigated race crimes knocked on the door of the gypsy for making a traveller joke. The Frenchmans door for make a frog joke - apparently someone in the pub felt that had there been another Frenchman or Gypsy near by they could have been offended by the jokes and therefore it required serious intervention!

Twitter accounts were suspended after the apologies were met with tirades of abuse from feminists who stated that IF either of the 3 had made a feminist joke then they would have been offended if they'd been in a pub.

Of course there was a huge uproar from the teetotallers and the Muslims who were greatly offended that the pub served alcohol.

Warren Gatland had to apologise for not knowing about the incident and therefore not making a comment for which he'd have to then later apologise for.

A Kiwi was offended for not being invited. An Aussie was offended because if the said kiwi HAD been invited, then he'd have missed a chance to get a bit of banter in with his kiwi neighbour.... He also had to apologise after being offended as he used the word banter, which is unacceptable.

The blokes in charge of the Oxford Dictionary had to apologise for putting banter in their dictionary.

The non English speakers were offended due to the fact that the Oxford dictionary was written in English.

The Americans started a war with someone.

Cudmore drank some of his sinbin wine, then punched a poor irish bloke who made a crack about maple syrup.

The irish bloke staggered around before kicking a fellow irish man in the head - just for laughs...

Bakkies Botha ate someones baby....

...meanwhile Marler escaped somewhat unscathed...until he made a comment about the policemans choice of footwear... However Tuilagi came in to save the day by assaulting said police officer... they all escaped in Ciprianis car, however because of either alcohol or tears, Cips hit a taxi....

An investigation into the whole episode is pending...

Fergus McFadden suspended for three weeks for this dangerous high tackle

I beg to differ, judging by that screenshot for this article I'd say McFaddens right arm is somewhat wrapped, that is an attempt at minimum...

Hit low and drive up is quite a common technique around the rugby pitch in many different facets - scrums, rucks, mauls and indeed tackles.. McFadden just hit high...

Regardless of how ineffective it was, we've seen heads gently touching other heads and that equalling red cards for 'headbutting'.... so one can only assume the same thing should apply here, boot/shin to head = red...

Maybe Marler is trying to get banned for something real this time instead of that pitiful ban to appease the beige cardigan wearing traveller rights representative do gooders...

Actually, on that notion, how can people seek bans/public shaming etc and get involved in representing a community who solve things with a quick bare knuckle dust up and that be it... Does the average Samson really give a toss about the comment?

The French are very non violent and peaceful players, they've never in the history of rugby resorted to any sort of violence, so it's natural that Arnaud appealed to the referee as this is the correct procedure and will eliminate him from being singled out as a representative of his nation for foul play...

"It seems more and more we have players just randomly running around the field crunching people with very little skill involved."

....said the heavy hooker......
