Bismarck Du Plessis controversially yellow carded for huge hit on Dan Carter

Not that it had anything to do with the ref's decision but:
a) he looked suspiciously offside (which made it hard for Carter to brace for the impact);
b) he should have let go before he went for the ball (which is a penalty offense, no more).

I did not see the match but I am quite curious how it looked from different angles. Too bad the ref is not wearing a camera in this instance, I wonder what he saw from his position.

Dimitri Yachvili carded for swinging arm on Delon Armitage

A few resentfull people crawling out of the woodwork here. It makes me wonder what kind of values they (will) teach their kids.

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.

Chris Masoe finds new role as touchjudge after assistant ref injury

If they put officials that big in every game of football, maybe the players would start behaving differently.

Classic stuff!
