George North sets up great try but Gloucester sneak controversional win

personally, i thought (though i am biased!) that the flanker and scrum half were both offside at the scrum. the flankers spent the entire game breaking early, and they were lucky to only get called for it late in the game. Gloucester, on the day, were the far better team.
Both tries were superb.

Rory Arnold banned for bite in process of scoring first ever Currie Cup try

On the penultimate replay, he turns his head, opens his mouth and looks set to chow down on some prime forearm, but the replay cuts off. However add the bitemarks and it looks pretty damning.

The Top Five (Aussie) Buzzer Beaters of All Time

no.... the best buzzer beater is Jonny's drop goal. They got that spot on. Luger could've made top 5, but no-one can take the top spot from Wilko! I was watching thinking they wouldn't give it to an Englishman, but fair play, they did!

Darren Dawidiuk banned for six weeks for tip-tackle on Dave Attwood

Thought at the time that yellow was sufficient, but a 6 week ban is frankly ridiculous. Its no where near as bad as Flood on Goode, but i guess Dawidiuk doesn't play for England, so is easier to ban than Saint Toby.

Jim Hamilton and David Paice shown red cards after being sin-binned

what a muppet Smith is.... Hamilton pushed Paice over for trying to block him, Paice then charges offside to attack a much bigger guy who gives back what he gets, then on the way off, Paice gets gobby and pushes Jim who again responds.... so how is Jim the instigator??? London Irish are the dirtiest team in the league anyway, look at the various Armitage/Hala'Ufia citings, so are they trying to deflect blame? I don't think Jim 'headbutts' either, as Paice is clearly pulling him forward and down, Ice Hockey style to get him off balance and down to his height.....

James Haskell banned for punches on Cheetah Justin Downey

recommendation was red.... could he not find the correct card? took an age and then just says 'i'm going for yellow'. way to undermine the lino's ref!!
