George North free to play after sickening landing worries fans

'Backwards' towards the opposition try line while Denis Hickie obstructed the defender. I remember that.

Argentina prop gets heavy ban after stamping on Joe Marler's face

What I take from this is that if you want to cheat and hold on to players you should do it, because if the other player doesn't react you won't get caught, and if he does react he'll get worse punishment than you.

I'm not condoning a stamp to the face, but this kind of cheating is so infuriating and so rarely caught that they should make an example of whoever gets caught doing it. Marler didn't exactly get a disincentive not to do it again.

Keith Earls furious after red card for tip-tackle in Munster win

Ridiculous that that can be a red card. If you lift a person by both legs and drop him, then ok, but if you lift one leg and drive him back so he falls over, then i don't see what the problem is. He didn't lift the player off the ground.

Owen Franks somehow escapes punishment after fingers in Wallaby face

I think the excuse of 'he just has a poor tackling technique' goes out the window in professional sport. His job that he's paid for is to have good technique, so if he's so incapable of doing that then he shouldn't be allowed to play, because he's a danger for other players. Hernandez didn't drop or change direction at the last second so there's really no mitigating factor here.

Zee Ngwenya knocks out Leonardo Sarto and himself with brutal headclash 'tackle'

If World Rugby wasn't such a joke they'd ban Ngwenye for dangerous play. This isn't just an unfortunate, unavoidable accident - it's him being completely incapable of doing the basics. And if that means he's a danger for others, he shouldn't be allowed play until he learns not to be a danger.

Quicker Scrums and No More Diving: The New Law Changes We All Wanted To See

Does anyone know what 'liable to sanction' means for feigning injury? If it means they're liable to be penalised then it's not much of a deterrent. I would have preferred to see 'liable to a yellow or red card and suspension'.

Sila Puafisi red carded after clearing out Kieran Marmion with his head

Is cockwomble a reference to a person or to a statement? If it's to a person, is it me or him in this case? I've never had the good fortune to come across this term before.

Sila Puafisi red carded after clearing out Kieran Marmion with his head

Wow he's stupid. Unless Glasgow go on to beat Connact and then Leinster/Ulster, I'd say he's 100% at fault for them not getting a home semi-final and final and winning the league this year.

Stuart Hogg named Six Nations Player of the Championship for 2016

Thanks for the introduction.

He was a deserving winner. There were other people that played well, but he was a cut above the rest of them in a less than oustanding team.
