Seven week suspension for dangerous tip-tackle in U20 Six Nations

That wasn't a tackle it was a wrestling move! Deserved a longer ban, if anything punishments at this level should be harsher.

Chris Hala'ufia suspended for five weeks after straight red card

Glad to see common sense has prevailed, shows how hit and miss the judiciary system is. I can understand and forgive a ref for making a call in real time, the panel however had no such excuses

Chris Hala'ufia suspended for five weeks after straight red card

Looks a class tackle, the player actually jumps into the tackle which is a penalty itself due to it being dangerous. As much as i don't like to see ref's giving red in this situation with the current emphasis i can understand it. The disciplinary panel however are a disgrace!
Also this is nothing like the Warburton red, he was sent off for dropping the player when over the horizontal!

Chris Hala'ufia suspended for five weeks after straight red card

The captain was not arguing with the ref, he was asking to go to the TMO, he would not be doing his job if he did not! Unfortunately this facility was not available at the stadium as you can hear the ref saying.

Valentin Courrent scores try then suffers freak injury from teammate's boot

It was like a move from an old street fighter game or something.
Poor fella, Jesus that pic from the changing room is haunting.

Stuart Hogg's hat-trick for Glasgow Warriors against Munster

AS a very proud Munster supporter and member of the supporters club I can honestly say I have no problem with the rolling of the ball, he got up from scoring a try left the ball on the line and ran back with his team mates, i wish more would celebrate a try like this, certainly better than swallow dives and SOCCER celebrations! Great prospect, if he can produce at centre it would go a long way to fixing Scotland's long term problems, good luck to him!

Stuart Hogg's hat-trick for Glasgow Warriors against Munster

Stop being a tool, we have had plenty Rob Henderson springs to mind, the Celtic nations have a small player base and sometimes are lucky enough to have a top class player with links to the country want to play for given nation, none of whom are mentioned by you. If this was aimed at Eng you may have a small point as they have a huge league the largest player pool in the world and the richest union yet still are prob the biggest user of the three year rule for players who have arrived as pofessionals.
Either way your comments are way off for this audience!

Digby Ioane suspended for five weeks for tip-tackle on Coetzee

He didn't drop him, certainly didn't drive him into the ground so WHY 5 weeks? Okay he went over the horizontal and they are trying to cut these tackles out but say 1-2 weeks is more than enough of an example. Also a 1-2 week ban for the flanker who went down very softly,even broke his fall with his arm and then made a meal of it, A worse offence in my eyes! PLEASE STOP DIVING AND PLAY ACTING!! I hope his team mates give him some kind of fine for this.

A look at the first ever White Card in Super Rugby

these would be useful if the TMO reviewed whilst play continued and then a player could be shown a yellow/red retrospectively in the match without the problem of slowing the game down.

Romain Poite enjoys the funny game, but Geordan Murphy disagrees

Guy's No 5 is the tackler and therefore not lying on the wrong side and does then move so no problem, Hooker has no part in the tackle and croft has clearly held onto the ball as those of you quoting directives should well know this is also a directive to blow up on very quickly.
The reason people are having a pop at youngs is he has a big mouth and previous form for poor behaviour and is looking very aggressive here.
