Wesley Fofana scores outstanding try vs Toulouse after just 39 seconds

I like how the Toulouse number 13 upon getting fended just gets up and walks away with an air of "fuck it, I tried" about him.

Is it me or does Richard Hibbard, the Welsh hooker, look like Ma'a Nonu's long lost albino twin?

Sergio Parisse red carded and banned for insulting referee

Saying that it goes on all the time shouldn't make it acceptable. That's the excuse football fans use when they see one of their players dive in spectacular fashion and getting a player from the opposite team carded.
They'll say it's part of the culture or it's a good tactic. And if you don't punish such behavior it becomes not just 'a' tactic but 'the' tactic.

I do find Parrise's punishment unbelievably harsh, but I understand the reasoning behind it. It isn't about the player or the ref at this level. It's about the game in general.

Sergio Parisse red carded and banned for insulting referee

No, the ref can expect a rebuke but not on the field and most certainly not from the players.
I'm sure he has to answer for poor decisions to the power that be.

You have to understand that it's fair to say that each and every player is stronger and in most cases bigger than the ref.
It's very easy to intimidate an arbiter by bullying him on the field.
This culture of respect for the ref is the only thing that keeps this game from slipping into the abyss like that other sport.

Sergio Parisse red carded and banned for insulting referee

Exactly.

I know Chris Ashton isn't liked a lot by some people here but when he got carded after Tuilagi punched him three times he just walked off despite being innocent in the matter.

Not a word to the ref.
