Jamie Heaslip accepts cited Pascal Pape's apology but is out injured

Rugby players squashing their grievances after the game is not something that is newly acceptable.

When things get out of hand and another sportsmen apologizes what else can a man do but accept the apology?

The only other possibility is that 100% of rugby players will act within the laws 100% of the time. That's not realistic in rugby or any sport.

Well, what are players supposed to do when the opposition is offside?

World Rugby accepts George North should have left field after concussion

This is not good for the sport.

2nd impact syndrome is a real thing, so is CTE. As a youth referee we spend a lot of time on concussion management. I can't believe this stuff still happens at this level. I send kids off all the time for concussions and follow up with the coaches and parents. They're out for the next two weeks automatically.

Between the ref, the touch judges, the medical team, the coaches upstairs in the box, his teammates or opposition SOMEBODY saw what happened and they didn't think to step in.

When you see a guy get knocked out, tell the ref. If you are a ref and a player has been concussed get him out immediately and follow up after the game.

Belgian rugby club scores over 350 points in bizarre club fixture

To travel, put on a rugby jersey, warm up, and let guys walk into your end goal…I don't get it.

At least they didn't get skunked!

Jason Eaton and Julien Bonnaire fight as La Rochelle claims famous win

Compared to the past some things are better some are worse. Very different skill sets are required today (especially in the fwds) compared to the game even 20 years ago.

In the past we didn't have players diving or players holding up their hands in dismay constantly at every breakdown trying to get a call. The players even at the highest level had accomplished professional careers and personal lives. Yes there was usually at least one psycho in every club, but it takes all kinds.

I don't think it is as fun to be a rugby player today as it has been in the past, it is however much more lucrative.

The game is a better spectacle for fans now and is a business with a lot of people earning a livelihood. In the past it was for the fun of the players, pride, and not too much else. You missed out.

Really? How long have you been around the sport?

This is not that big of a deal. Rugby has never been cleaner.

Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

1)Jesus Christ, what a coward 2)This is the natural outcome of introducing regular crazy long multi-game bans and yellow and red cards into the game. Players will try to get others ejected from the game. There should be no such thing as cards in rugby.

Sam Burgess big tackles on Ben Jacobs plus first try for Bath

He should have switched codes a year earlier. As outstanding an athlete as he is and with all the progress he's made I'm not sure he'll be ready for the RWC.

But wasn't the RWC the whole point?
