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...

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????
