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...

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.

Chris Ashton carded for high swinging arm on Maurie Fa'asavalu

Are you referring to the incident where Ashton punched Manu in the fist with his face?

By the end of the season Ashton will be able to decorate his entire house with bright yellow wallpaper if he continues like this.

Fiji stage dramatic comeback to win Hong Kong Sevens

Is it so hard to read between the lines? Noone would give Wales a chance to win a leg of the tournament beforehand but they nearly pulled it of. Kenya also did that recently. Therefor: no certain candidates to win the Olympics, which makes that tournament all the more special.

Is that clear enough for you or do I have to explain even further????

Young Prop Dean Irvine scores 90 meter intercept try

Or you can search for 'fat man running' on youtube and find some clips that have got exactly the same to do with rugby...nothing.

Ilai Tinai suspended for five weeks for dangerous tackle against Wales

Ref asked the linesman for advice and acted accordingly. Normally that would be totally okay. But in this case it happens right in front of both of them. Actually, the ref has an even better view than the linesman.

To me it looks like he was not willing to make a decision that would decide the outcome of the match.

By the way: not completely sure it was intentional, it just happens too fast. Intentional or not should not have bearing on the color of the card though.
