Naked streaker starts mass brawl after tackling Varsity match winger

Why did the ref blow the whistle? The try was still on, he could have just played advantage.

All Blacks snatch victory at the death in thrilling Brisbane Test

Looked like a great match, and so close. NZ not looking quite as imperious at the moment!

Midweek Madness - Japanese player loses the ball over the tryline

Interesting to hear a completely new take on Rugby commentary. Not a single commonly used Rugby phrase in sight.

Jebb Sinclair controversially red carded for 'leading with the elbow'

I agree with @Dolphin2010, he could be given a yellow for a pointless attempt at swinging his arm after the hit, but even that would be harsh. At least it only cost his team a few minutes with a man disadvantage. He will not be given any ban, you can be sure of that.

New Zealand snatch victory in the dying minutes after strong England showing

I think he has his Knock On interpretation technically correct, but he seems to be over zealous in attempting to correct everyone else's interpretation. He needs to remember too that a ball passed/lost backwards OR FLAT is perfectly ok. I always love his refereeing as he allows play to flow, leading to some of recent years' best games, so why be so picky with the knock ons...?

New Zealand snatch victory in the dying minutes after strong England showing

England deserved the win, which is something I don't say often. New Zealand do have a way of winning matches even when they're outplayed throughout, just remember that heartbreaker vs. Ireland (which I think was their last match)...

Wallabies notch up 50 in runaway first Test win against France

I agree entirely. Nick Cummins effort was pretty special too.

That French fumble has got to be one of the most inept moments in international rugby history. France must be a nightmare team to watch, not a drop of consistency.

French referee horrifically breaks leg, collarbone, and sprains ankle

Couldn't bring myself to watch the second half of that video, just in case they showed a slow-mo...

Wales Under-20 Dafydd Howells scores fastest try in international rugby

Can't see that record being beaten for a while. He's definitely onside from the kick too: Great Try!

Ed O'Donoghue cleared of eyegouging after red card game changer

kanpai, I couldn't agree more. Everyone knows gouging is a serious offense, and if you go for someone's face like this, then you can't complain if tough calls are made.
I think it's an honest mistake, one which Donoghue could easily could have avoided with slightly better judgement.
In the end, the penalty was the only result of this as the card has been rescinded. Seems fair to me.
