Nemani Nadolo banned for dangerous David Pocock clean out

Thanks for clearing that up, RD. I wonder why World Rugby is now taking such a strong stance to contact with the neck, exclusively with rucks and nowhere else in play. What is it with rucks and nowhere else on the pitch that makes this such an extreme issue. You could very well argue that the link I posted is more dangerous than the clear-out he got banned for.

Nemani Nadolo banned for dangerous David Pocock clean out

Interesting that the video I saw doing the rounds for Nadolo's ban was a totally different incident.

Has anyone taken time to read the disciplinary report? Was this ban the result of two incidents?

Wales come from behind to beat hosts England at Twickenham

For all the dreary Stephen Jones columns he has to put up with I actually think Robshaw's a great captain. Full backing of his coach and players and always leading on the stats front. Decision to go for the corner was the right one. Decision to hit the front jumper obviously a wrong one but which as far as I'm aware, would be a call made by Parling?

Wales come from behind to beat hosts England at Twickenham

When and how did Wood leapfrog The Hask in the England pecking order?! Why is Wigglesworth ahead of Care? For the past 4 years I've done nothing but moan about England selection and now I'm even starting to get bored of myself.

England finish strongly to pick up bonus point win over Fiji in RWC 2015 opener

The first English maul was very dodgy. Certainly looked like a classic case of truck and trailer going unspotted.

With Johnny May and the jumping into a tackle, is that not only a penalty when it is considered dangerous?

Japan edge South Africa at the death in huge Rugby World Cup upset

This is probably the best thing that could've happened to get casual supporters engaged in the world cup.

Mic'd up scrumhalf Josh Holmes puts in a vocal performance in the NRC

Don't like this at all. I used to do it all the time myself. The best thing a coach ever did was sit me down and tell me to cut that crap. Refs shouldn't have to put up with that.

Manu Tuilagi denies assault and says he was injured for RWC anyway

You'll have to forgive me, I've unfortunately never passed the bar. But in order to press charges and successfully convict, would there not need to have been evidence of big Manu committing the assault? If he was standing outside a nightclub hailing a taxi I imagine there were plenty of witnesses. So if he is as innocent as he claims, it wouldn't have been that hard to clear is name?

I genuinely think strapping a GoPro on all police officers needs to happen - ridiculous as they may look.

England beat Ireland in final World Cup warm-up game at Twickenam

Bizarre how anyone can consider Zebo to be a better rugby player than Trimble.

This Ralph Lauren heavy guitar stuff is almost as annoying as the old Geoff Hurst adverts on here.
