All Blacks snatch victory at the death in thrilling Brisbane Test

Isaak, I thought you were just being paranoid making that claim, but in the end it turns out that you're a genius. Fair play.

Richard Hibbard and Sione Kalamafoni double hit on Brad Barritt

I think Barritt is one of a number of players that your point could be applied to. I remember Jeff Wilson saying that a difference between rugby today and rugby twenty years ago is that back then players ran at space and tried to avoid tackles; now they run at players and try to win the collision.

Ben Flower red carded for vicious punching at start of Super League Grand Final

Until reading your comment I actually hadn't realised what had happened. The guy is obstructing Flowers a bit, but as you said, on 1.18 Flowers appears to clothesline him or strike him in some way to remove the obstacle. I thought he had just pushed him, which would have been fine, but on closer inspection that's not the case at all.

So essentially what really started this was Flowers elbowing/striking the guy and what finished it was him cracking him one while he was defenceless on the ground. Any sympathy I had for him has vanished.

Argentina beat the Wallabies to claim first ever win in Rugby Championship

It's not suspicious in the slightest. The IRB rankings are extremely transparent and a full explanation can be found on the website. If Argentina went up two places in the rankings it's because the two teams ahead of them weren't very far ahead of them to begin with, and beating a team as highly ranked as Australia gave an abnormally large boost to their ranking points.

Naked streaker starts mass brawl after tackling Varsity match winger

Do you not think he took it a bit far by actually interfering with the play? One thing is going on at a break in play and running around a bit, but another is actually interfering with play and putting one team at a disadvantage.

Springboks edge All Blacks in another thriller between the two rivals

If South Africa weas the home team, why is New Zealand the team on the left side of the scoreboard? Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought the standard for any sport was to have home team on the left and away team on the right.

Honey Badger Nick Cummins stars in new Head & Shoulders commercial

Fair enough Ant. You must speak in a language only you understand because what you said seems mostly like gibberish to me. Sorry if me not finding him entertaining makes me ignorant.

Honey Badger Nick Cummins stars in new Head & Shoulders commercial

Am I the only one who's just sick of this guy by now? He was mildly entertaining for a spell because of the odd things he said, but I found that that got very repetitive, and now that he's in Japan and his top-flight career is effectively over I find that I care even less. He seems like a nice guy and everything, but, I just don't understand why people still revere him as some sort of comedy God.

Tana Umaga lines up and smashes into older brother Mike Umaga in 1999

I agree with some of what you say, but to say that England fans are just angry because Armitage will outdo Robshaw is a bit simplistic. I'd say they're angry because international qualification has become a complete farce - and it was already pretty laughable - and the prospect of capped players playing for a second country because the first country isn't giving them enough attention is ludicrous. In the case of Armitage, at least he has some link to France aside from a work contract, but he was capped by England and that should be it. France recently presented ten foreigners as being of interest for their squad - that's two thirds of a team whose only link to France is that they're paid to work there. Madness!

You can't blame Armitage for wanting to switch - he obviously stands to gain hugely - but the administrators of the soon to be 'World Rugby' are making a mockery of international rugby.

I wouldn't mind seeing Alesana Tuilagi running into Manu at full speed and seeing what happens.
