Luke Charteris and Pascal Pape shown yellow cards for Top 14 fight

Can't help but notice that pretty much all the brawls posted here are from the top 14. Is that just random selection or do the French attitude and horrible French refs cause so much more fighting?

Tai Tuifua's dangerous flying tackle on Nicky Robinson

Seems pretty legal to me, goes on the shoulder with the intention to make a good, big hit and tries to wrap his arms around him. I think we've seen lots of dubious tackles being penalised lately and I think we should let ones like these pass more often. We're not playing chess, remember?

Carlos Spencer highlights from the Blues' 2003 winning season

I think questionable is an understatement, but otherwise a great clip from a great rugby player

Tim Visser runs around Tommy Bowe to score a great Edinburgh try

I would just like to leave some comments on what you have been saying here about Visser, Dutch people and white South African's origin as being a Dutch guy.

1. Visser should definitely play for Scotland, it would make rugby more of an issue in my country. The sports news payed a little attention to the World Cup, but not a lot and that would surely change if we had a Dutch guy competing. (Our national team will never because the sport is just so small here, so one player is the most we'll get)

2. Many South African last names are derived from Dutch ones, mine is Albers, clearly similar to (Willem) Alberts. Another example is Steenkamp which is Dutch as well. I can name several more like that. However I doubt whether the size of the forwards has anything to do with our size. The people there are such a mix of cultures (as far as I know) that it has barely anything to do with each other.

3. Afrikaans is practically the same as Dutch. A while ago a South African rugby team visited my club and we could just speak with them in our own language, understanding 90% of what was said.

To conclude, every Dutch rugbyer is extremely proud of Tim Visser, he is an example to all of us that you CAN make it to the top, even in a country that has no rugby culture and very few world-class skilled trainers and/or opposition.
