Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

There's testosterone in boxing but that doesn't mean the boxers start kicking eachother in the head. There are laws. Obey them.

When I started playing there were fights in every match and hardly anybody got sent of, ever, which was ok by me. But things have changed over the year, for the better. There are legal ways to 'dominate your opposition' and hitting, kicking, biting, gouging have nothing to do with 'dominating the opposition'.

I guess I started looking upon this differently when my son started playing. He nearly got his eye poked out and I certainly don't want him to come home missing some teeth because some idiot decided to 'dominate the opposition'.

And don't even start argueing that there should be different rules for different levels. It just doesn't work that way. Just look what happended to wendyball, at all levels..

Well, the referee does not make the laws, he just needs to apply the laws properly.

Why wouldn't the ref let play continue after a forward pass? Answer: because it would not be rugby anymore but American Football. The same goes for hitting someone on the pitch: that kind of stuff has no place on the field of play.

Both red would have been more appropriate in my opinion. It looks like a slap in super slo-mo but it carries the force of a hit.

Both players hitting eachother from behind: trés chique.

Yoann Huget's horrific looking face stamp against Bordeaux Begles

I don't like this bloke, I don't trust him at all and I have the distinct feeling he did in on purpose since he was looking down when he decided where to put his foot. He seems to apply extra force too and he knows instantly what he has done and decides to look concerned. Quite strange that this went unnoticed by the citing officer.

Are you actually also suggesting his home adress is Area 51, Nevada, USA?

Carlin Isles burns England in semi final as USA fly to London 7s Cup Final victory

USA did really well and Isles seems like a genuinely nice and modest bloke, as does Baker. But please, don't ever start chanting 'USA, USA' in the stadium speaker ever again. Nobody does that and it kind of ruined a perfect performance for me (from a completely neutral perspective).

Manu Tuilagi admits to assaulting police officers, won't be part of Rugby World Cup

Sorry to hear this, both because of the fact he will not feature in the World Cup as well as the reason for it. He is still young, I really hope he will get his act together and be a better man for it in the future.

By the way: big thumbs up for Lancaster and the English management for the way this is being handled.

Tim Visser Q&A ahead of Edinburgh farewell match

Good luck to him. I hope he will find his mojo at Quins and I would love to see at least one more try this saturday.
