Morocco shock Tonga as tryscorer flies over advertising boards!

Good man for getting on with it... his team mate was a bit of a plank with his appeals.. The bloke was carrying the ball until the last moment and was fair game.

Joe Marler fined £20,000 and banned for two matches for Gypsy comment

It sets a valuable precedent!!! Say something deemed offensive then throw money to make it go away...

Anthony Watson furious after receiving straight red card vs Saracens

However this was not an incorrect decision, and red and yellow cards are designed to impact the game... Sooooo, what's the problem?

Silvère Tian red carded for insulting referee Romain Poite

World Rugby didn't exist then, did it? Perhaps this is the reason for the name change!

Joe Marler fined £20,000 and banned for two matches for Gypsy comment

I'm so glad world rugby is around! It's a horrible thought imagining a planet without a governing body which can step in to make their mark on a supposed finished argument between two grownups who accepted the immediate outcome.

Life ban for horrific deliberate kick to the head by club player in Argentina

Disgusting and such a shame that the game and other players had to suffer as a result of a poor and insufficient punishment.

Silvère Tian red carded for insulting referee Romain Poite

Just goes to clarify that two grown ups consenting to a physical game can't have a disagreement and apologise between themselves and it be ok, the 'nanny state' needs to take control. To me, an apology and an acceptance of wrong doing are some of the most valuable things, if the other person accepts the apology then it should be the end of the matter.

At worst, Marler should have been sent on some Gypsy awareness course or some tunnel of prejudice type of shit.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2h3yDtO5TLg

David Pocock suspended after choking Chiefs number eight

Finedisregard, the guy just comes across as an all out 'nice guy' (aside from this), when he has the skill, toned body, probably money and fairly good looks to get away with being a total dick....

It's a bit like Dan Carter... I'm not really sure he's someone you can ever really dislike.... Even if you don't like him!

To say "Dan Carter is a bit of a dick, so is Pocock etc" will probably only make people think you're an idiot...

However, if you turned around and said "Farrell is a dick" most people would probably go, "yeh I can see where you're coming from"...

Silvère Tian red carded for insulting referee Romain Poite

Oh certainly, I didn't mean to come across blasé about it. What I meant was, the player has clearly lost his head in the manner that any rational thinking person would wake themselves up. Sergio Parisse red card and ban for the apparent language towards to the referee was interesting, Parisse was unhappy about the entire thing, perhaps livid would be a good word, however he showed utter dismay about the decision, and towards the referee, not anger, or at least not physical anger... from watching the Parisse incident again, I didn't feel for one second that the referee was in any kind of physical danger from Parisse. So Parisse was angry, but had his head screwed on enough to realise that if referees are wrong then they will be dealt with by the appropriate means.
