Friday Funnies - Charged down ball hits referee Andrew Small in the face

Under Law 6.A.9(a), it seems the scrum should have gone to the Quins, as the Quins player was the last one to "Play" the ball.


Definitions
Played: The ball is played when it is touched by a player.

6.A.9 THE BALL TOUCHING THE REFEREE
(a) If the ball or the ball carrier touches the referee and neither team gains an advantage, play continues. If either team gains an advantage in the field of play, the referee orders a scrum and the team that last played the ball has the throw-in.
(b) If either team gains an advantage in in-goal, if the ball is in possession of an attacking player the referee awards a try where the contact took place.
(c) If either team gains an advantage in in-goal, if the ball is in possession of a defending player, the referee awards a touch down where the contact took place.

Michael Rhodes straight red card and suspension for stamp in face

One of the mitigating factors cited by the commissioner was the stamp was not committed against a Kiwi, nor against Dan Carter..

Hence only the one match ban.

Manu Tuilagi apologises for 'bunny ears' prank on prime minister

well, you could just go ahead and respect the person who is hosting you. applies to any occasion.

I bet if he did that back home in Samoa to someone who was a peer of his parents, he would have probably gotten a right smack.

Bismarck Du Plessis controversially yellow carded for huge hit on Dan Carter

yeah -- if the referee:

1. is going to the TMO for all the afterwards stuff
2. already believes the original foul is a card-worthy foul

How on earth would a reasonable human being not expect that he should confirm with the TMO his proposed penalty and Yellow card?

Poite's call up to the TMO was "I've already made my original decision" -- seems he's got quite a bit of hubris, no?

Juan Martin Hernandez one-handed long pass in the rain

Pretty solid kick from J.M. Leguizamon too.

Kicked from between the posts, 5m out, and still managed to get close to the 10m line.

30-35m gain in ground, kicking from the centre of the field, under pressure, and a backrower...

The Top 5 Rugby Villains of All Time - Rugby HQ

Apparently FOxsports "Lost files" include any footage which they don't already own the rights to -- i.e. too cheap to pay for Northern Hemisphere rights.

#4 and #5 soft as hell too.

Butch James at #3 is at least a decent call.

My top five (in no particular order) -- in general, I leaned for an overall body of work, rather than a single-heinous act (granted eye gouges are as bad as it gets), and a penchant for the modern (professional) game.
