You sure are getting a lot of mileage on that one.

Manu Tuilagi admits to assaulting police officers, won't be part of Rugby World Cup

Any time you see a guy that has a) a rat tail or b) jheri curl you should keep them at arm's length because they are capable of very bad decisions.

After I heard about this guy jumping off the ferry I knew he was a moron of the highest order.

Somebody new. USA did a great job in 94 with the world cup. Big stadiums, plenty of hotels, local culture, infrastructure etc.

Horrible. No cards. No penalty. Just let them play.

Richie McCaw knocked out cold after getting his head on the wrong side of a tackle

It's not unusual for McCaw. McCaw has had a long and serious history of concussions, and those are only the ones we know about. Once you've had just one you are more susceptible and he's had more than 3 with past problems of headaches, memory loss, and dizziness.

We're going to see more and more of this thing. North won't be playing at 30. This is the outcome of bigger, stronger, faster ethos of pro sports. Rugby players in weight rooms=a lot more concussions. Be careful what you wish for rugby fans...

David Pocock scores first half hat-trick against the Highlanders

The man has a right to his opinion. I agree with what he says but I have a problem with him using his platform as a sportsman to straighten everyone out.

While I am not a fan of homophobic slurs I am also not a fan of a player telling on another player to the official about a verbal transgression. Pocock is obviously very tough, I just don't believe in tattling. Different culture I guess!

Come on folks, there are hat tricks and there are hat tricks.

Why would a guy clap for himself in any language?

Pocock is a great player but he goes out of his way so that we can tell he is a white knight social justice warrior.

Ali Williams controversially Sin Binned after colliding with Devin Toner in the air

I'm with you. I ref at the youth level and we don't allow lifting because the risk. I think what really happened in this clip is that Toner leaned away from his supporting boosters. Falling from 14 ft in the air is dangerous.

I was a 2nd rower that started off my career without lifting. Lineout jumping was an extremely important individual skill on par with being a good kicker. They've eliminated it, let's bring it back.

Ali Williams controversially Sin Binned after colliding with Devin Toner in the air

You're 100% correct. Whenever a player lands awkwardly the ref's first reaction is to go into their pocket. The histrionics of the players gesturing with their arms up doesn't help either.

Referees' mentalities have changed a lot recently. They have more of an influence over the game than ever before. It's not a positive trend.
