Get Excited For The Rugby World Cup, Less Than Six Months To Go

Thumbs up for an oroginal piece of trolling ;-) But I believe you can make this kind of assesment of literally every match. And to be honest: based on the tournament as a whole, France were never going to win it. The All Blacks almost lost it though.

Julian Savea and Eben Etsebeth slap one another while smiling

Nice slap, Bruno.

He seems to be a proper succesor to Bakkies.

Francois Steyn banned for 5 weeks after rescinded red card is overturned

I do agree with the red. The fact that other tacklers are involved should not mean a card can't be handed out. It looked quite dangerous to me, landed on his neck with a few people on top of him.

The ban...hmmm, not so sure. In this instance the fact that there were more tacklers involvolded might have been taken into consideration. Maybe they did, I did not read the completen ruling.

Another Leigh Halfpenny concussion prompts questions about tackling technique

As Gareth Thomas says: he seems to be favouring one shoulder over the other. What seems strange to me is that in this instance he seems to prefer to tackle with the shoulder he dislocated last year.

Well anyway..I am not going to critisize his sommitment or his technique since he outscores me big time on both. I just really really hope his injuries will not get the better of him.

By the way: I wonder how Toulon owner Mourad Bodjellal will feel about this ;-)

England and France's Twickenham thriller not enough in dramatic title chase

Non on the obstruction aussi. At no point Lawes gets in front of the ball carrier.

England part of three-horse race for the title after victory over Scotland

Actually it was not the only boot that slipped of during the match. One of the forwards also lost a shoe, I believe. I think there might be a designflaw here.

Three Kiwis banned for punching or striking in Round 2 of Super Rugby

Well Phill, join the missus in being disappointed with me. DanKnapp told me to not throw you any more bananas so I'll stick to that.

Three Kiwis banned for punching or striking in Round 2 of Super Rugby

Thanks for the advice, Phill. I've read all your comments so the wisest thing for me will be not to follow any of your suggestions.

Based on the content of your comments I guess you yourself have not played at a professional level either. Either this, or you've been punched in the head quite often yourself. Or you've played your last rugby in the seventies. Whatever. Punching, although sometimes understandable, has no place in rugby. At least not anymore.

By the way: your insults lack any level of intelligence and/or humor. I think the audience on youtube will be more aprreciative, maybe you should go there,

As per rules? Ahem, I guess you mean 'laws'...

'As per rules' someone that punches should be sent of,period. You, my friend, have a quite subjective interpretation of the 'rules'.

And don't pull the 'tiddlywinks' comment out of context. Originally it had absolutely nothing to do with punching people in the face but with hard fair play in general.

I suggest you get your facts straight before you throw in any further nonsense.

Rynard Landman red carded for elbow to face against Connacht

Funny how the victim of his actions does not get mentioned in his so-called apology. Also, he talks about his 'decision' instead of his 'actions'. That sounds like he's pleading guilty to premaditation.

Ah well, 8 weeks seems appropriate to me..
