Bakkies Botha injures Marcos Ayerza with big charge towards tryline

Absolutely nothing wrong with the run by Botha, it was just unlucky for Ayerza that he was the one standing in his way.
Cockerill should in fact be glad that it was Ayerza in the way as anyone else would have probably been snapped in half by that charge and not have had a hope of stopping the try from being scored.

Munster's Ronan O'Gara facing ban for deliberate kick on Sean Cox

Stupid thing for him to do, especially so close to the Six Nations campaign. However clearly foul play, so I would imagine a ban of between 6 and 10 weeks, something tells me he won't be taking part in this years competition!

Toby Flood faces ban for alleged dangerous tackle on Andy Goode

Started off as a good strong tackle but due to the fact that AG landed on his head/neck (agreed, mostly due to the secondary tackler [no.2]) and that TF could have gone down with him to prevent AG landing in such a way I expect it to be a ban. Probably around 2/3 weeks as there was no malice.

A quick guide to the new Premiership law changes

As a referee myself the new 5 seconds at rucks law states that when the ruck is formed the referee calls 'ruck' as normal, then when the ball is available at the base the referee calls 'use it' and from that call the attacking team has 5 seconds to do so.
If defending team counter ruck during the 5 seconds, referee should call turnover and then when ball is available again for either team call 'use it' and start a new 5 second count.
Sanction if play is delayed when ball is available is a scrum to opposing team
