Scrumhalf Fourie du Preez's big tackle on number eight Dave Denton

Denton had a rough day...

Pity FDP is going back to Japan, I've really enjoyed seeing him work his masterclass in the past few tests.

The Wallabies claim comfortable victory over Ireland in Dublin

Suspended players are Adam Ashley Cooper, Nick Cummins, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Benn Robinson and Paddy Ryan and Liam Gill.

Written warnings for Dave Dennis, Kane Douglas, Saia Fainga'a, Bernard Foley and Nick Phipps and verbals for Scott Fardy, Mike Harris, Ben McCalman and Nic White.

Not many first team players in there (especially considering AAC is out with a shoulder injury anyway) but it has impacted the bench a fair bit. The Honey Badger is a big loss though.

If Australia were out on the town on Tuesday then Ireland must have been on an all week bender...

New Zealand tested by England but the World Champions remain unbeaten

It didn't feature in the above clip so I may be wrong about this but wasn't Read penalised for going off his feet at the ruck?

Sona Taumalolo and Yoann Maestri red carded for France vs Tonga fight

I didn't catch this game but it seems to me from what the commentators said that there was a bit of handbags going on all game and that the ref might have been a bit more heavy handed with the two reds to set a precedent that he was not going to tolerate it in the game.

I agree it's a funny one though; it reminds me of the Cudmore/O'Connell incident from a few years back, except POC was yellow carded as the retaliator and JC red carded as the instigator. Not sure what the IRB's official stance is on this kind of thing, a yellow/red would seem like a fairer result.

Probably when he crossed the offside line and started punching on with the opposition...

Maori All Blacks edge the USA Eagles in exciting clash in Philadelphia

I'm remiss to say that this was the only full game I caught over the weekend; very entertaining from both sides.

England get the better of Australia with strong second half at Twickenham

There's been a lot of talk about a Grand Slam in the Australian media; I wonder did they take England a bit lightly?

Shocker from the referee for Farrell's try, I'm surprised that both he and the video ref came to the same conclusion. Is there some kind of 'benefit of the doubt' to the attacking team in this instance?
