Bakkies Botha not too concerned about horrible fractured finger

Bakkies doesn't do subtlety..hahaha..

The thing I don't get with hair transplants right... is that baldness is progressive...if you loose hair from the front, then over the years its going to reach the back... or if you lose it from the top, then over the years its going to reach the ears (sort of)..

So effectively sticking a wig on the empty patch (a more dynamic wig granted!) would just mean that it'll stay hairy once the rest of your dome becomes exposed...no?

Anyway, yes, you can do a lot with £300k a year, but it's pathetic that any footballers are making more than this!

Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

I don't fancy arguing minor details about this incident as we both agree Hugets act is disgraceful - but honestly at around the 1:45 mark, when the Bath player brings his hand round in an arching action to grab Huget, I would definitely suggest he makes contact with Hugets 'head'.

I don't believe there was any contact with the face in terms of nose/eyes area (as Hugets actions suggest by grasping his face) but it seemed to me there was definitely a hand which caught his jaw sort of area...

Either way, as I said, I don't wish to end up in an argument about who is worse Huget or Azam, they're both equally appalling...

...also *adjusts conspiracy inducing hat*, they're both French :D

Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

The thing is though, from what I recall (being too lazy to hit the play button) there was contact with Hugets face.. So he didn't necessarily fake being punched, he just exaggerated what happened to his face - which was a hand touching it...

So I sort of see the same thing happening in both videos....

Plus Huget is a wing and French, which makes it less preposterous that he fell to the ground like a sack of garlic...

Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

I think whatever punishment would be placed on the ''offender' i.e. the person who supposedly struck the opponent, should be placed on the 'victim'; in this case Huget.

So in this incident, one would assume the facepush etc (if it was genuine) would result in a yellow card... in my opinion, that should mean that Huget receives the yellow.

In the Tom James headbutt example posted above, where the so called offender Tom James receives a red card, I would reverse that and place the red card on the diving player.

Of course this is a very over blown punishment for the actual actions (diving to the ground) however, the players in both cases deliberately attempted (and in Tom James' case, succeeded!) in getting the other players into hot water and through 'false acts'... Don't get me wrong, if someone pokes your eyes go insane, but in these situations I think the ethos needs to be protected.

To be fair, nothing was worse or as blatant as this:

Jonathan Joseph brilliance sets up Francois Louw try for great Bath try

It makes very good sense, the only problem is, if you go into the game with 'defensive' backs, then you'll only ever have your forwards working their arses off to try and reclaim the ball after the said 'defensive backs' coughed it up (one way or another)...

...if of course you go into the game with attacking backs and your forwards are awful, then you'll have had a decent plan in place, but not been able to follow through...

I suppose its sort of a case of putting your best foot forward and going for the win. None of the 6N teams are unbeatable at this stage, of course if you were heading into a match against NZ, you'd have to think a bit more carefully.

Mamuka Gorgodze finishes off outstanding Toulon team try in Ulster thrashing

To be fair though, I've heard about lots of teams 'self banning' players for certain things, even if it means they put themselves in a tough position, purely because they have their policies...

...I admire putting the ethos ahead of the game, however you have to go with what works...and frankly, Armitage comes across as a clean player/decent guy and someone who won't be a detriment to the team - unlike his brother (if they were so desperate to want to select him)
