What happens if the Super Rugby knockouts are tied at fulltime?

The Lions could have done with this given Barrett's bockety boot

Sarries claim back-to-back European titles after beating Clermont in Cup Final

The try at 10:23 is an absolute classic example of Chris Ashton defending. Whenever he can he will show the attacker so much space up the outside channel. By not closing the defender down he turns a 2 on 2 into a 2 on 1 and Farrell, backpedalling, never stood a chance. I find the commentators who said he should have been in the Lions squad utterly absurd. I'd rather have Ayoola Enrinle in my side.

Fantastic match all the same.

Ma'a Nonu back to form with brilliant individual try against Toulouse

A nice step at the end, but the whole thing looks like a game of U11s, where the kid who developed before everyone else could cut aimlessly back inside and barrage his way to the try line.

Referee Angus Gardner dissects controversial mid-air contest rulings

A bit unfair to say there's a disconnect of opinions between players and rugby authorities based on an interview with two of the many thousands of professional players out there. And even if there is, it doesn't make World Rugby wrong. The current rate of knockouts can't continue. Realistically, the game isn't being drastically altered either. Let's not get carried away.

Referee Angus Gardner dissects controversial mid-air contest rulings

I'm struggling to see what's so ambiguous about World Rugby's directives surrounding the high ball. Players have to have a duty of care to those in the air. Hoiles' opinion is so moronically dangerous.

Was Sanchez ever in a realistic position to compete for the ball?

Steven Luatua banned for 4 weeks after tackle on Tim-Nanai Williams

I quite like the high ball ruling being used vis a vis hips above shoulders

Steven Luatua receives straight red card for dangerously high tackle

Apart from Nanai Williams head butting Luatua's forearm, can we also admire the glorious break from Kerr Barlow. Absolutely untouched through the defence
