Maxime Medard and Louis Picamoles tear Lyon apart

It could have been refused if Picamoles had touched the down for double movement. But since he passed it you can say he tried getting back up, which is legal if not held, but feld he was held so offloaded. Two very nice tries.

Highlights of Toulon vs Clermont, including Rougerie fight & Smith yellow

The yellow is harsh, it seems like Smith attempts to intercept properly.
Toulon's president shouldn't be so involved, everybody knows who he is in Toulon and some even think he's the coach. His behaviour on Tv is just stupid.
On the fight, Orioli was taking on Parra and Rougerie came to help, without actually fighting so to me only Orioli should have been sin binned. But both refs say they did not see exactly what happened : in this case their judgement to send both off is a good decision.

Referee Nigel Owens - 'This is not Soccer'

Football refs could get much more respect from the players if they talked to the players and made them shut up like this.

Benoit August playacting after James Short lashes out

It looks like something that would actually hurt but the way August falls backwards seems fake.
This succession of videos showing exaggerations is starting to get annoying. I hope the IRB will take some measures to prevent this.
I'm okay with the forwards doing kicks but if they start playing like scrumhalves on every level it's going to ruin the game.

Francesco Minto red carded for head-butt on Yann Lesgourgues

Just a stupid move. I wouldn't have given a red though, yellow would have seemed enough. But that's my judgement without knowing the irb specific ruling on headbutts.

Morgan Parra vs George Chuter, and Manu Tuilagi simultaneous yellow

No arguing about the Tuilagi yellow. About Chuter, normally this should have been a penalty for an obviously late tackle. As said before, he's not committed when parra makes the pass. But since less than a minute before he was fighting with the same player, it's just a revenge hit, so yellow too.
I think parra was indeed hurt by the tackle but is was not high and he acts like it was so for adding a bit he should be warned. Some said it's a part of the whole n9 package but it probably shouldn't anymore!

Isa Nacewa's big hit on Dan Hipkiss at the Rec

It looks like Nacewa's going for a big (legal hit) but stops in the middle when he realises the ball is gone. Still a big shoulder charge so penalty at least.
It looks harder because Hipkiss stopped and wasn't in a strong position.

Biarritz score a sensational team try against Montpellier

If only Biarritz could play a full 80 minutes match. This try and the two against Saracens show they can be brilliant. Such a shame they don't win more games.

Stirling Mortlock's big hit on fellow Wallaby David Pocock

Even not in a strong position, Pocock is a big lad so you have to hit really hard. Nice job there by Mortlock!
