The Fastest Man In Rugby: Carlin Isles short documentary

Marketing potential? That depends on how you look at it. It would be wrong to give people the impression that you can be succesfull in rugby by just being fast. To some extend that works in 7s (lots of space) but basicly there is loads more to it.

Great athlete! I wonder how he would do in 15's as a scrumhalf for example. Different ballgame, less space but he does seem to have the right attributes for it.

Gavin Henson knocked out by punch from new Bath team-mate

Froliks is spot on. If this was a video involving any other human being, everyone would have regarded him as the victim. Now he seems to be the purpotrator. Quite pathetic actually.

George Smith knocked out by Richard Hibbard on Wallaby return

Very sad story indeed. And exactly why we all should be worried about player welfare, at every level the game is being played.

Maybe in this case it's a SANZAR trial.

George Smith knocked out by Richard Hibbard on Wallaby return

So much to say about this video:
- how hard is Hibbards head...
- Smith must be one of the thoughest blokes out there...
- but most of all: how the hell did he pass the concussion test????????
I think players should be protected against themselves even better than they are now.

Butch James suspended for four weeks for high tackle on Jurgen Visser

I believe James has a history of citings so I guess there will not have been to many mitigating factors.

Wallaby skipper James Horwill cleared and free to play in deciding Lions Test

From a neutral perspective I keep finding is strange that 'making contact with the eye or eye-area' aka 'eye-gouging' is deemed severly punishable whereas making contact to the same area with the boot is not.

Well, I guess justice has been done. It will be a cracker of a game next weekend.

Wallabies snatch second Test victory to level the Lions series

Why didn't they run the last ball as to get closer to the posts? 50 metres is a long distance at any moment during the match, let alone after 80 minutes.
