Taqele Naiyaravoro banned for taking out Beauden Barrett in the air

He did exactly the same thing when playing for Glasgow Warriors, in his first appearance I think, albeit without the 1-week ban.

Scotland come up trumps against France at Murrayfield

If I remember correctly, Fickou's try was disallowed due to a forward pass.

Scotland come up trumps against France at Murrayfield

Laidlaw's shirt-grab is nothing new in rugby. Look at your own Top 14 (and other leagues), where enforcers are taught to halt the opposition where ever they can.

Laidlaw did not even slow the French No.6 - like a mouse trying to slow a charging cow.

I remember a funny incident a few years ago in the Heineken Cup where Clermont's Nathan Hines held down not 1, not 2 but 3 Ulster players! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btcJjN-OUqY

Wallabies snatch victory from courageous Scots at the death

BS. Watch even closer at 7 seconds, it was a foot from the ruck. Blink and you'll miss it. The ref is right there watching too.

Wallabies snatch victory from courageous Scots at the death

Gutted for the Scots. They played extremely well.

What makes this all very bitter is that Joubert ignored his chance for TMO for the penalty, and then at the end, blew 3 quick blasts on his whistle to end the game and rather bizarrely sprinted from the field.

Weird, huh? And disrespectful to say the least!

Maitland's card was harsh but possibly fair. We've all seen worse knock-ons not given as deliberate like his was.

Wouldn't want to be Craig Joubert just now...

Ireland Wolfhounds hang on in face of late England Saxons chances

Except Ireland and England give their A sides fun names eg, Wolfhounds and Saxons. And the Kiwi's have NZ Moari and there are probably more with names too.

Most other A teams are simply called Scotland A, France A, Italy A etc. And Wales do not use an A team. Their under 20s double as their second team.
