Jared Payne banned for two weeks after red card challenge on Alex Goode

Nothing in pro rugby happens by chance
4 minutes in ....!!
if this isnt sanctioned heavily it will give a green light for players to run through/back into opposition jumpers without punishment.
And that will be d a n g e r o u s for all players in all levels of the game.

Carlin Isles dropped ball blooper ruins great fifteens debut try

TRY ......100% , ball never went toward one inch.

Sarcastic applause is unwelcome in the game, but equally is showboating....both led by the TV Elite Players ....

Friday Funnies - Nigel Owens tells off Mike Brown and Yoann Huget

Mike Brown clearly was attempting to get the ball to take a Quick Throw In.

Law 19.2 [i] is expressly written to penalise Huget for his QTI obstruction/prevention ........

“If a player carrying the ball is forced into touch, that player must release the ball to an opposition player so that there can be a quick throw-in. Sanction: Penalty kick on 15-metre line”

You can also add in 10.4[n] which prohibits “Obstruction” or 10.4[m] which deals with “unsportsmanlike” behaviours.

However you look at it, Hugets actions were the catalyst, and Nigel Owens AND his AR both know this.

If NO concentrated on refereeing the Laws rather than his self promotion of ‘look at me’ [ I believe his slogans now appear on T-Shirts !!!!] then maybe this blatent ‘gamesmanship’ would be managed out of the game.

England would then have had a Penalty Kick & a chance to go two scores ahead ............ Oh..., ah ha – perhaps I’ve stumbled on why England didn’t get a PK as the Laws require ..... Shame on you NO.
