Digby Ioane manhandles Bryan Habana in tense Top 14 clash

The Georgian guy is guilty of a bad attitude, nothing more. A quick talking to the ref would have been enough. Why are you so keen on taking guys off the field for niggling stuff like this?

Digby Ioane manhandles Bryan Habana in tense Top 14 clash

Exactly!
Habana goes into contact with his shoulders lower than his hips, which is unsafe and not a great way to play rugby. Ioane does pick him up but does not drive him into the ground or drop him. What is a guy to do?

Tom Court shown straight red card for tip tackle on Devin Toner

The game made it for about 180 years without cards and was better off. It's just a whole can of worms with major inconsistencies applied and too much power in the hands of a referee. Red cards ruin more games than foul play ever did. The cure is worse than the disease.

Somebody help me out. I know the wording has changed, but when did this no dumping law come about? I'm thinking something like 10 years ago?

Midweek Madness - Player falls to floor after worst fight ever

Well I guess the joke is on me. I can't tell the difference between someone flopping for a ref when they get slapped then trying to play it off and Samoan humor.

Now my question is are Lebron James and Cristiano Ronaldo purveyors of Samoan humor too? They go down for much less than this!

Midweek Madness - Player falls to floor after worst fight ever

He wasn't joking, he was trying to draw a foul. I'm glad that the ref and crowd laughed at him. If the ref making the call had a bad angle and no tv somebody could have been sent off.

When there is a zero tolerance policy towards striking the most beneficial thing to do is when you are hit is to act as you are injured when you are not (same thing for contact in the air).

Be careful out there rugby friends. The culture of our game is changing very rapidly.

Hey bro, you live by the insane pass, you die by it. The guys on this list are not the most steady, but they will freak you out! Remember Mehrtens was usually selected ahead of Spencer.

UCT Ikeys win 2014 Varsity Cup final with unbelievable comeback

What's with one player from each side wearing pink shorts?

Fighting during a game is one thing, fighting after is messed up. I don't know what that young woman thought was going to happen. Everyone has a right to defend themselves.
