Sunwolves lock Tim Bond suspended for 4 weeks for dangerous tackle

He did not wrap up. This should result in a penalty and a verbal warning.

These 4+ week bans for small transgressions are way over the top. To receive a four week ban players should do something truly heinous. I don't mean a high tackle or refusal to wrap. I mean gouging eyes or choking players.

I know that the powers that be are going after foul play with a reformers zeal to make examples but I don't know of any other sport that gives such heavy handed penalties for things that happen in games quite often.

It is very rare to see games of rugby with 30 guys on the field for 80 minutes and this is a problem.

Yellow and red cards have diminished rugby and these citing commissions are way out of hand.

David Pocock suspended after choking Chiefs number eight

Well, his track record is not impeccable anymore is it?

What makes him such a "top bloke" anyway? His use of his platform as a sportsman to showcase his political beliefs?

Silvère Tian red carded for insulting referee Romain Poite

Bad news. Get this guy out of our sport. This is a bigger deal than any high tackle or punch.

David Pocock suspended after choking Chiefs number eight

When Dave Pocock is not chaining himself to trees, acting as a social justice warrior, or stopping games of rugby because some uses a gay epithet he is choking out the opposition. Nice.

Life ban for horrific deliberate kick to the head by club player in Argentina

You guys don't get it. There was a bee on the down player and he is highly allergic. The guy in red killed the bee and saved the player's life!

Graphic: The Most Popular Rugby Boots in the 2016 Six Nations

Wear any color boots you like: as long as they're black!

I've had good luck with Puma, and Mizuno. Okay luck with Adidas. Bad luck with Nike and Canterbury. Anybody remember Lazer boots?

Ugly fight erupts between French and British navies in annual clash

Boys will be boys. They squashed their differences, played the game, shook hands and went for a drink. These things happen, it's not a big deal.

Johnny Sexton blasted by fans and players for playacting

You are a coward if you appeal to the ref. You are a coward if you feign injury. I'm done with you Sexton!

Bernard Le Roux shown straight red card for petulant stamp

This is absurd. If you showed this clip to rugby players 15 years ago they would not believe what has happened to our sport.

Rugby is being destroyed by overzealous referees.

Friday Funnies - Bollywood's violently dramatic take on Rugby

I have always wondered why rugby never stuck in India. Most every place else in the empire plays. Too hot, ground too hard, burn too many calories, too violent?
