Antoine Burban's huge covering tackle on Perpignan's Watisoni Votu

Hard to see intentions from that far away. Would have loved to see it in cloe up.

Great tackle. It will probably make the next TS&RB. Nice bit of obstruction in midfield too, somewhere at 0.08/0.09.

Thanks for posting this RD. And best wishes for 2014!

Sam Egerton banned after being red carded for eye rake in Varsity Match

That looks nasty and quite damning. The ref even seems properly annoyed with him. 15 weeks seems pretty mild to me.

Midweek Madness - Rhys Patchell's 62m penalty kick vs Glasgow Warriors

Agree with DrG. Look at the flags of the linesmen. Very impressive nevertheless.

Sebastien Chabal knocks out Marc Giraud with big right hook

Great vid!

I do agree that is is insanely frustrating. I do not agree that the victim should be allowed to take the law into his own hands. Besides: there are more subtle ways to do that than knock a man out (although I don't think Chabal meant to KO him).

In the rest of life it is basicly the same: chances that you get away with driving through a red light are considerably higher than when you rob a bank.

Sebastien Chabal knocks out Marc Giraud with big right hook

I don't think you really mean to say this but I can only conclude that basicly you think it's okay to display this kind of behaviour and retaliate if the ref doesn't pick up the initial foul.

Fortunately most of the players on the pitch show more discipline than that. Plus we have a proper (be it slightly inconsistent) citing procedure for those kinds of incidents.

Seven incredible tries from the 2013 South Africa Sevens

Lots of skill involved in the Fiji try but my vote goes to Ignacio Martin. Huge individual effort, still amazed he got hold of the ball after 5 or 6 juggles and managed to stay on his feet.

Wing JP Pietersen's big tackle on Eighthman David Denton

So how often do you accidentally bump into the same person normally?

Willie Le Roux stars as the Springboks beat Scotland at Murrayfield

To be honest: he is not the only 'dirty' player on the pitch. I saw Bakkies headbutt his way into a few rucks, then there was De Villiers dropping onto a player and the Pietersen incident. I guess the Scottish tried to match the Boks physsicaly which off course doesn't work.

I love to see the SA backs carve up the defence but there is still a lot of aimless high kicking and a lot of off the ball stuff that matches the overall public opinion of the Springboks.
