Amazing kickoff as strong winds blow ball back over the dead ball line

I don't think it is the right decision at all. Both linesmen raised their flags too soon. They should have waited for the ball to touch either the ground or a player after going through the posts.

If a ball gets kicked over the sideline and gets blown back in before touching anything it's also not supposed to have been out. I guess the same should go in the Contepomi-case.

Not that the linesmen could have forseen this happening...

Michael Rhodes straight red card and suspension for stamp in face

Great to see the tiny linesman running onto the pitch to avoid escalation!

In all honesty I would give the 'stamper' the benefit of the doubt here. I also would in the case of Wood. Just because I cannot see any player being stupid and malicious enough to do such a think in full view.

Manu Tuilagi apologises for 'bunny ears' prank on prime minister

Not really smart but utterly harmless. Press is just making a big deal out of it. On a sunny side: even it the Netherlands rugby has some attention today!

Nick Wood red carded after 73 seconds for stamp on Jacques Burger

Well, the way I see it Burger made a sudden movement after Wood rucked his back. Which does not make him less quilty off course. Honestly I think 'I could not see where I was putting my foot (or hand/arm/knee/leg/head)' should be accepted as an excuse. Everyone should know better then to take a swing at something he can't see.

Looks nasty but still a lot of positives to be taken from this video:
- quick decisionmaking by Barnes, imo something to be admired (although it can turn out wrong);
- Wood going back to apologize;
- Burger being a good sport in his reaction to Wood.

Well, I guess as long as he can proof he could not see where Burgers head was, he won't get banned (Horwill).
