Stuart Hogg apologises after red card challenge on Dan Biggar

Saying that.. they do say that is the best way to reduce your chances of death and lower limb damage if you're about to be hit by a car...

I'd imagine with a bus it might stop you going under it?

Perhaps ask Cipriani how it went down?

Stuart Hogg apologises after red card challenge on Dan Biggar

I think yourself and I have agree in the past that it is odd that a player who is so blatantly caught on camera perhaps poking another in the eye, would get a reduction for saying 'yes I did it, I'm sorry'....

But I agree here, the guy seems genuinely remorseful, but perhaps we all have to be fully accountable for our actions..

One could argue that Hogg has a pristine disciplinary record up until now, but is that necessarily a reason for leniency? Maybe (and I seriously doubt) this is the beginning of a long trend of violence towards others.

You could also argue that the player 'just lost his head', which again, is that a reason for leniency? When there is another 29 players out there who have managed NOT to lose their heads?

Of course I sound like I'm trying to get Hogg hanged, which I am definitely not trying to do, but so of the arguments I have just stated make the disciplinary panels' decisions look a bit odd when you look deeper into them.

England notch up 50 in Rome but Championship fate out of their hands

I'm probably way off here, but his appearance gives me the impression he is one of those people that when he winds up to send the ball into orbit, you think 'oh no we'll be pinned right back with this kick' only to then see the ball skim off his foot and travel about 10 metres sideways...

England notch up 50 in Rome but Championship fate out of their hands

I'm not an English fan but I too found it incredibly disrespectful - as noted up there somewhere.

Like I said, Robshaw was blowing out his backside, it was no doubt a hot day in Rome smack bang in the middle of the day, Robshaw had just scored a try and the rest of the England team had a big plan the whole game with Farrell taking quick kicks etc and Robshaw is asked 'what could you have done better'...

I know it was week 1, but Wales beat Italy 23-15.
Week 2 France beat Italy 30-10
Week 3 Scotland beat Italy 21-20
Week 4 Ireland 43-7

So honestly Italy have done pretty well at staying in a lot of the games and getting destroyed by Ireland was IN Ireland... So for England to do it in Rome was great for them...

What are everyones thoughts on the new(ish) scrum laws... I'm not a fan of them particularly.. I don't know if this year the scrums have been better or not? I remember one game where I don't know if they completed a single scrum, each one resulted in penalties...

Wales achieve biggest ever win over 14-man Scotland in Cardiff

Sorry, just to add, I am not comparing Farrell individual indiscretions with this incident, but what I mean is he has a number of lightly (or yellow card) punishable offences, none of which were really picked up on..
