The Steven Luatua Quarterback Lineout throw against Australia

Spot on - It should always accrue advantage to the non-offending team.

On an long throw, the throwing team is the one running past the 10m to gather it, so the obligation to throw straight should be on them.

Romain Taofifenua banned for three weeks for kicking Stuart Olding in the head

IMHO, if you use your feet, you take the risk.

Just like these guys kicking a scrumhalf's hands.

But this seems more clumsy than malicious - a one week ban would suffice.

The extra two weeks are for aggravating circumstance of having more vowels than consonants in his surname:

6V - 4C = 2 weeks

Toulon defend Heineken Cup title with comfortable final win over Saracens

Steffon Armitage was a machine.

Now if the RFU (and most other unions for that matter) can just resist the temptation to pick 6'3", 240 lb flanker because they are lineout option.

Armitage showed us there is still a place for a low-centre of graavity backrower -- as long as he's first to the ball.
