Northampton Saints and Saracens to meet in Aviva Premiership Final

Exactly. Look, shaking hands with the opposition after a game is not in the law book, but if someone would refuse to do so then that "crime" in my opinion shows a lack of respect to the game which is worse than any off ball issue. Same thing goes for the treatment of the referee.

Rugby union has a code and it's not the same thing as the Laws.

Northampton Saints and Saracens to meet in Aviva Premiership Final

Buddy, you're 100% right.

Ashton yelling at a kicker taking a conversion is more troublesome and objectionable to me than any "tip tackle". What a horrible example for young players watching the game.

Cards and the removal of players from the field is really changing the outcome of all big games. It's one of the biggest factors in the result and shouldn't be so.

135kg Schoolboy Prop Taniela Tupou scores Hat-trick

These are the guys I like!

Rugby has taught me many lessons, one of the foremost is that great athletes come in all shapes and sizes. I like the big props, short halfbacks, and slight wingers.

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.
