The bizarre moment coach Christophe Urios slapped Fabien Galthié

Little rat. The annoying slap that's enough to stay out of trouble but enough to enrage the other person.

Shocking footage of vicious kick during college rugby match leads to arrest

Rather than having new standards and background checks, I think giving the aggressor a savage beating in the car park afterwards would be the best way to police this kind of thing. If someone is scum, that's not going to come up on a background check unless they've been caught before.

Taniela 'Tongan Thor' Tupou goes from Youtube sensation to Test rugby

Considering that he's known as Tongan Thor, he really shouldn't be playing for Australia.

Waisake Naholo escapes card after taking Stuart Hogg out in the air

Personally I would have penalised the Scottish player. If you change your line of running to obstruct a runner (a penalty offence) and the runner then gets in an accident, it's your fault, not his.

Courtney Lawes lays into Kurtley Beale as England run rampant over Australia

I would have substituted Beale immediately after that disaster of the try that he gave away. Already the idiotic yellow card was too stupid for words, especially considering they were already down to 14 men, but that lazy refusal to chase the ball was unforgivable. I don't know what the Australian media made of his performance, but I've rarely seen anything so disastrous.

Scarlets' Steff Evans finishes sensational team try in heavy rain

Where it looks forward and the receiving player isn't behind the ball-carrier at the moment of the pass, and the commentators agree completely that it's forward, then it probably is forward.

Great try and everything, but the forward pass is there.

Suspension down under shows that recklessness will always be punished

Red for the tackle, another red for crap play by the ball-carrier. If the guy in front of your is bigger than you and is ready for the tackle, go around him.

Russian side topple Stade Français to cause major Challenge Cup upset

I know Stade aren't great, but is this the biggest upset in recent club history? It reminds me of Japan vs South Africa in the world cup.

Raised elbow from Juan Pablo Socino leads to suspension

Red card all day long. You don't fend or brace yourself by sticking your elbow into a guy's face at full speed. It's just stupidly dangerous and will break some poor tackler's nose/cheek sooner or later.

Rieko Ioane calls Springboks and All Blacks classic toughest Test he's played

Why does the position of his hands matter at 1.42? His hands travel forward faster than the ball because he makes bad contact, but the ball still travels forward, even if a bit slower than Crotty's hands. Therefore, knock-on.

The idea of him slapping his hands down on the ball while diving at full pace and somehow knocking it backwards towards his own goal line is quite difficult to buy, to be honest.
