Australia's Women claim historic Gold Medal at the Rio Olympics

Question for the Kiwis on here:
My understanding was that it is culturally inappropriate for women to perform a haka (since their role is different in powhiris etc.) and I see them doing do here. Is this a live issue in NZ, or has it been settled now?

Super Rugby Highlights feed - Round 16

I can't believe that a fully professional team can concede 80+ points. That's so far beyond embarrassing that I'm not sure the right word even exists.

Georgia: Are rugby's Tier 1.5 nation ready for another step up?

All the rambling arguing on this post seems to be about the Six Nations being reshaped, but I don't think that is the main point. At the moment Georgia can barely get a game against the Tier 1 nations, so we have no means of knowing exactly how good they are, and they have no great chance to stretch themselves and advance.

I'm looking forward to the game against Scotland this Autumn.

Owen Farrell yellow carded for knocking out Dan Robson with sickening clash

Reading through the comments here, it appears that Farrell:
- Was unlucky to be carded
- But should be banned
- Was committed to a regulation tackle when a mishap occurred
- But was intentionally trying to cause injury, like he always does

It is clear that since Roman Poite was unable to satisfy all these straightforward assertions with their appropriate response, he is letting us all down.

Highlights and celebrations from Japan's famous win over South Africa

Minor minor minor point here, but did Hesketh actually touch the ball before his try? The match details say that he came on in the 80th minute (presumably at the scrum). If so, that's a heck of a way to make your entrance :)

Ireland cruise to comfortable RWC warmup win over Wales in Cardiff

Much as I'd like to comment on the game, I spent the whole video shaking my head in disgust at those awful rucksack-straps on the Wales kit.
