USA Eagles have two players red carded in loss to Italy in Houston

Sorry but those are two shocking decisions by the ref. Both yellow I could understand but the first one, there's nothing wrong with the tackle it's just late. And the second one was hardly dangerous. Late and no arms. We see yellow and nothing more for those which happen fairly often. USA can feel very hard done by with those decisions and can feel very pleased that they only conceded ten points throughout the whole of both red card periods.

Chris Ashton's huge hit on Gio Aplon and Ryan Kankowski's on Thomas Waldrom

I remember seeing Ashton's tackle and thinking that I wasn't going to see a bigger tackle in the game.

I was proved very wrong. Great stuff Ryan.

Carl Hayman suspended for four weeks for Zee Ngwenya spear tackle

Yeah it did look worse with the drop. Still just a clumsy challenge rather than any malicious intent.

Manu Tuilagi tip-tackle citing dismissed ahead of South Africa tour

Right call in my opinion. In real time it didn't look like anything at all. I think Wayne Barnes has it right. That is was beyond the horizontal but not dangerous. He's also clearly taken into account the emotion that all players will be feeling and understands there will be a little extra bite in some of these hits. Fair call and no ban seems correct.

Shane Williams bows out on a high with decisive tries in PRO12 final

@Rugbydump If possible, could you get Ashley Beck's try too. Preferably with the whole build up starting from the kickoff to the second half. I thought the Ospreys showed great composure to score that one.

I feel yellow was fair as it was reasonably clumsy. No way a red though. Although as a Welshman, I'm very against red cards after the RWC.

Kini Murimurivalu finishes off excellent Clermont full field try

Lol. Now the truth comes out. Also though, considering the match, it was cool as well. Now had this been the RWC final, I would have been screaming at him to kick.

I agree. It is frustrating when a team mate runs around like that but as a spectacle (especially when you aren't playing with the guy) its great to see. Also, in fairness, he had few other options as he was going back to pick it up.

Why you should tackle low - Dewon Reed's fends

Even though the tackles are rather questionable, it's still very impressive. Especially the size of some of these people who are being shoved quite far. Great strength by Reed but the other guys should get back on the tackle bags.
