Michael Hooper suspended for one week for striking Nicolas Sanchez

It's about as legal as being a human leech and holding onto someones shirt while they're trying to play a game of rugby; which lets face it, is why all these guys actually turned up in the first place...

Michael Hooper suspended for one week for striking Nicolas Sanchez

I'm also a little lost with your comments....

Sanchez was a play acting little bitch.. Granted a slap from Hooper can't be nice (or a punch), but when you start tugging shirts of any forward, you get what you deserve...

I play second row/back row, I wouldn't say I'm entirely stable, but look at some of the international back rowers.. Schalk Burger, Lewis Moody, Serge Beston... some rather unhinged strange folks... I wouldn't go round tugging on any of their shirts...

Alesana Tuilagi crunches big winger in thrilling Samoa and Fiji draw

It's the "hows your father" part that makes me cringe... Although it did bring back memories of fits of laughter regarding one of your posts in the video: http://www.rugbydump.com/2014/05/3734/jean-deysel-suspended-for-three-weeks-for-stamp-against-crusaders

"Sounds like a very effective policy to me.

Get caught with your hands in the ruck -> get sodomised in the middle of the pitch -> Never use your hands in the ruck ever again."

That one in particular...

Alesana Tuilagi crunches big winger in thrilling Samoa and Fiji draw

As Stroudos said, only needs one foot. Danger with requesting 2 feet touch the ground is you open up a can of worms with technicalities... can you imagine all the painful examples of play acting we'd see :(

Brilliant Richie McCaw lineout move first done vs Springboks by Samoa in 2013

Oh come on, you didn't remove my comment did you?!?

It was all in jest... I'm hoping RD hasn't gone peacekeeping mad and that it was some inner workings of the interweb that didn't post the comment...

Toulon play the France '98 FIFA WC squad in Half Football, Half Rugby charity game

I know it's probably a bit harsh, but it reminds me of that whole Jerry Collins playing for a small club side - If the late JC had turned the burners on, he could have probably racked up triple figure points for himself and who would have really thought high of him? Maybe this is an unfortunate incident to pick on as it may have been very one off... but I see Delon Armitage showing up a bunch of old footballers... I mean for starters the 98 wc squad can't be entirely fresh (I didn't read descriptions, so I don't know if there were young guys in there to bulk out numbers?!?), also he is a rugby player, he makes a living running hard... so to see him burst down the wing then trot around in the try area is kind of like, "Oh wow, well done Delon, you showed up a bunch of football OAP's at the game of rugby".... Going full circle back to JC, if he'd turned the burners on, it would have been a bit like "yeh well done mate, you're a pro player for the All Blacks... of course you're going to outclass us... now please **** off".. as it was, he was humble and played down his skills...

I dunno, probably is harsh on Delon, but you can't help it.. if Dylan Hartley was in this you'd be expecting him to bite, gouge, headbutt someone... (Zidane and Hartley head to head..headbutting?!?!)

Michael Hooper cited for off the ball punch against Argentina

Ok, so this is a lil shirt tug... when does a shirt tug become a big one? Are you allowed to react to a big tug? Are big tugs to be penalised?

Are small punches ok? Or small slaps? Or small brushes of hands on face? When do they become 'not allowed'?

Just wondering seeing as we're clearly drawing lines in the sand here about what is acceptable and what isn't..
