Huge hit by Tonga in Pacific Nations Cup draw with Samoa

Actually, this is exactly the kind of tackle I DON'T like. The sole intent of the tackler seems to be to hurt the opposing player. I (and I guess we all) have read quite a few articles on concussions etc. lately so even if this tackle is legal, it's still dangerous.

George Pisi's brutal blindside hit on Nick Abendanon in Challenge Cup Final

I've got such big respect for this guy. Got up so many times from such big hits. And never took a step back. Seems like a great caracter!

Adriaan Strauss suspended for three weeks after tip tackle

Is this all the footage the committee had at it's disposal? There doesn't seem to be much in it to me but I guess the law is the law although the explanation of how they came to 3 weeks completely baffles me (low entry, upgrade, excellent record...wtf????)

Friday Funnies - Team mate questions with Donncha O'Callaghan

He seems like a properly funny guy with a great and rather behaved sense of humour.

Digby Ioane manhandles Bryan Habana in tense Top 14 clash

Actually, the second tackle IS dangerous. If I follow your philosophy driving through the red light is also not dangerous...unless you cause an accident.

Digby Ioane manhandles Bryan Habana in tense Top 14 clash

He took him down safely in the second tackle. But in all honesty the fate of the player that's being tackled is no longer in the hands of the tackler if you hold someone in this position. So I guess yellow would be correct (in my very humble opinion)

If by 'interesting' you mean 'utterly annoying' I'm completely with you ;-)

Toulon aiming to defend title after tense semi final win over Munster

I can't even remotely imagine what rugby without Wilkinson will be like. I hope the best team will win. And for his sake I hope it will be Toulon.

Saracens fly through to Cup Final after dominant performance vs Clermont

Ashton always got a disproportionate amount of slack for his showboating. I really wonder how many hatefull comments people like Rockocoko/Serevi/Paulse/Ioane and even Shane Williams (remember his last try in the red jersey?) received.

I agree with you: to me he looks like a quality player (which he proves objectively by scoring 11 tries in a HC campaign that has not yet finished). And until proven otherwise I believe he is okay as a human being too.
