Nigel Owens shows Anthony Allen the way to the football stadium

Great, great referee!

On tour in the North of England we were loosing heavily. The ref, a local player and all round top bloke, at one point started to make up reasons to disallow tries from the home team. My favourite: 'No try, penalty against you for gallery play!'

Ian Evans facing suspension after red card for stamp on Mike McCarthy

Well, if there is one thing we learned from the Horwill-verdict, it is that you are not going to be punished as long as you're not watching what you are standing on.

In light of that verdict I would be surprised to see him get any suspension at all.

The biggest punches and worst fights in French domestic rugby

I really hate seeing players throw cheaps shots at each other while in the meantime we are patting ourselves on the back because in rugby respect for opponents is a core value.

On the other hand: one thing I dislike even more is players faking their own death without even being properly hit.

I guess there are two sides to every medal (a French medal that is).

Benson Stanley demolishes Yoann Huget with biggest hit of the year


BTW: writing 'fact' in capital letters doesn't support your opinion. At all. Ever.

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.

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

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.
