Brian O'Driscoll dumped off the ball by Mauro Bergamasco

Agree with Howard: I don't see much wrong with the tackle itself although it's close to the edge of the rules. It was off the ball, don't know what the punishment should be for that. Not a citing in my humble opinion.

The Force upset the Crusaders with big defence amidst crowd control problems

Wow! They seem to have filled some pretty big defensive gaps with a few huge last grasp big hits. Quite impressive!!!!!!!!

Paul O'Connell knocks out Dave Kearney with clumsy kick to the head

Since when is kicking someone in the head, intentional or not, not illegal?????

Paul O'Connell knocks out Dave Kearney with clumsy kick to the head

What baffles me most is that it happens richt in front of the linesman with no blocked view, yet he only seems to notice the ball getting over the sideline.

Not sure it's on purpose but something this stupid deserves a ban anywat. My guess: 4 weeks. Which will be reduced to two since he will plead guilty and will show remorse.

Bakkies Botha injures Marcos Ayerza with big charge towards tryline

Given his reputation I never thought I was ever going to say this but...I think Bakkies is completely innocent in this case. There is no evidence of jumping into the tackler whatsoever.

Bad luck for Ayerza and I hope he gets well soon.

Cockerill should have known better, his comments make him seem like a very sore loser.

George Moala suspended for knocking out Buxton Popoali'i with big tackle

As DrG said: it would have been an absolute brilliant tackle. Great commitment by both players!

Stade Francais' Jerome Fillol spits in Peter Stringer's face

Looks like something from the 'Dupuy-book-of-tricks-for-French-scrumhalfs'. With the proper footage I hope they will give him a minimum of 30 weeks. Filthy bastard!

Halani Aulika rounds Sale Sharks cover to score great prop try

Goodness what a poor attempt by 14. Well played by the prop though, he started laughing when he saw who the last line of defense was.

Dimitri Yachvili forgets he's playing rugby, backheels pass for Erik Lund try

So by that definition it should have been a scrum to the opposing team in this case too. Since a kick with the heel is technically not a kick...

Dimitri Yachvili forgets he's playing rugby, backheels pass for Erik Lund try

Although kicking the ball with your heel is officially illegal (according to the IRB laws) its also NOT a knock on:

'A knock-on occurs when a player loses possession of the ball and it goes forward, or when a player hits the ball forward with the hand or arm, or when the ball hits the hand or arm and goes forward, and the ball touches the ground or another player before the original player can catch it.'

Lets call it 'undefined'. Same goes for kicking with the knee. Some people start play after a free kick with the knee.

In this case I have absolutely no idea what the ref should do about it since there is no defined punishment either.
