Ben Tameifuna and Jamie Mackintosh banned for old school rucking

According to the laws of the game the ref is right to award a penalty in both cases (intentionally rucking the body). However, I don't understand the citing and subsequent suspension since both acts were neither dangerous nor cardworthy.

Rory Arnold banned for bite in process of scoring first ever Currie Cup try

Although I agree with you to some extend I don't think in this case you can hold his behaviour towards the ref against him. Especially since he shows the kind of behaviour we all would love our kids to copy; no argueing, just accepting his decision made by the ref.

Off course I am totally against biting. But in some cases I can imagine reflexes kicking in like when you are being suffocated in a headlock.

Jamie Roberts poor pass bombs try after great break from Jonny Sexton

Imo the break by Sexton deserves more attention than the pass by Roberts.

Classic stuff!

The Fastest Man In Rugby: Carlin Isles short documentary

Marketing potential? That depends on how you look at it. It would be wrong to give people the impression that you can be succesfull in rugby by just being fast. To some extend that works in 7s (lots of space) but basicly there is loads more to it.

Great athlete! I wonder how he would do in 15's as a scrumhalf for example. Different ballgame, less space but he does seem to have the right attributes for it.
