Griquas centre Jonathan Francke cited after awkward tackle and sending off

How about this: don't go into contact with two defenders at a high body angle.

Just because a guy lands awkwardly it doesn't mean the ref has to ruin the game.

The Top 5 Worst Celebrations in Rugby history

Before Cipriani did his half ass "Dougie" he pulled up injured too. You can't do a dance then hobble off the field.

Hugging and high fiving your mates in the tryzone is cool. Any pre-choreographed dance move should be an instant yellow card! Back in the way back day players would be stonefaced after scoring.

The Top 5 Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins Moments

Great player and character that really adds so much to our game. Rugby needs Cummins in the spotlight badly. I certainly cannot blame him.

I can't help but think this is a sign of things to come. The foreign money vs. test career thing is coming to a head. The best players are not going to be content to forgo serious paydays just to rep their countries. Money talks and everything else walks.

I wonder what the difference is in salary between the Force and Red Sparks?

Jonah Lomu wreaking havoc against Australia in 1995

I remember watching Lomu's profile screen on tv back when they had height, weight, club, and OCCUPATION. It said he was a bank teller. I wonder if he ever really worked in a bank.

The Top 5 Moments from the 2001 Super Rugby Season

Interesting exchange.

As far as lineouts what the law did with lifting was turn an individual skill to a group skill. If you guys didn't play back then it was quite different. If you had a very tall or very skilled jumper you could basically kick for touch with impunity from anywhere on the field.

Having a great lineout jumper was akin to having a great kicker on your squad. Many guys specialized. Of course it was also a great place to sort people out, refs hated it, and it looked like a mess on tv.

Most of the changes come from the game morphing from an enjoyable player-centric activity to a polished television spectacle driven product.
