Stuart Hogg's hat-trick for Glasgow Warriors against Munster

Sounds like a pretty typical Perth accent to me!

Try being a troll somewhere else.

Try Savers & Rib Breakers 12 - Rugby World Cup 2011 Edition

Shame that the amateur Argentinian hit that was on RD a while back wasn't in this, one of the best hits I have ever seen in any form or level of rugby!

Already looking forward to TSRB 13!

Calum Clark banned for 32 weeks for breaking another player's arm

This is ridiculous, how can Matt Stevens get suspended for two years for taking cocaine, whereas this THUG commits nothing short of assault AFTER the whistle and only gets 32 weeks. Most of which will be over the off-season. I feel he should have a significantly longer ban (minimum 1 year) and his case should be referred to the appropriate authorities for criminal prosecution!

As rugby players we tend to be physically stronger and more intimidating than the average person and therefore we have a duty to be disciplined. This is a result of the complete opposite of this and goes against everything that rugby is about!

Waratah Tom Carter's antics against the Reds

Got to agree with Full Back (great position btw!) bit disappointed with RD for this.

In the past couple weeks a couple of Scotland players (Nick de Luca and Rory Lamont) had to close down their twitter accounts due to abuse. Yes sometimes as players we can all get a bit overenthusiastic, be that by making an early tackle or celebrating a bit prematurely. Yes we deserve if someone does this the deserve to be criticised, but not to such a degree that it becomes bullying and very personal.

I always thought this was something that belonged in the realm of football and that as rugby fans we were more civil and mature than this (but just as passionate!).

Sonny Bill Williams claims the New Zealand Heavyweight boxing title

As someone who used to box turned rugby player, this is one of the worst boxing matches I have ever seen. They looked like two kids in a school yard fight just swinging wild punches hoping something will connect. I appreciate SBW may enjoy boxing but perhaps he should just stick to playing rugby in front of the cameras and leave the sweet science to real professionals.

Matthew Morgan salvages a draw for Ospreys against Treviso

Got to agree with the previous posts about the Benvenuti tackle. At first I thought oh dear definitely a yellow (maybe a red by today's standards) but then watching the replay it is clear he was brought down safely so I thought just a penalty and no more.

As a fairly big fullback 6'2 96+kgs, I have also found it quite difficult when tackling small players. Occasionally if you are in a very good tackling position and go for a hard hit they are just too light and it is almost impossible to prevent them getting tilted in the air.

I know that spear tackles can be very dangerous and I agree that players that deliberately drive other players into the ground like a spear deserve punishment, but this automatic sin binning for just lifting a player (accident or not) really needs to be looked at.
