Player banned after filthy off the ball tackle on female referee

Absolutely horrifying.

This is of course antithetical to rugby culture. I'm not sure it is antithetical to Italian culture.

World Rugby announce zero tolerance approach to contact with the head

It's weird. Refs are more a part of the game than ever before yet they have less discretion than ever.

Tackles come off wrong sometimes. Life goes on. I hate this 0 tolerance stuff.

Edinburgh's Burleigh sent off amid Papé playacting

No reason to freak about it and act like a coward either.

Edinburgh's Burleigh sent off amid Papé playacting

I don't like the way that rugby is going at all.

I'm talking about the little kid reffing the game, I'm talking about the straight red for something innocuous, and Jesus Christ we have 2nd-rowers taking dives after halfbacks slap them?

We need to take a look in the mirror. This is not cool.

George North free to play after sickening landing worries fans

It's just an accident. There does not have to be somebody sent off every time someone lands awkwardly.

North should not have returned to play. He was obviously concussed. I doubt he will be playing at 30.

Kieran Brookes and Calum Green both suspended following breakdown altercations

You're not alone Fats. Brookes loses his feet. That's the only problem I see.

Hilarious footage of wing Jonny May trying to scrum goes viral

Did you guys ever have the one practice a season when the forwards and backs switch? The lesson is always the same:forwards can do what backs do but backs cannot do what forwards do.

Italy fully deserving of first ever victory over the Springboks

I know many in the rugby community dislike South Africans but the demise of the Springboks is very bad for our sport. With the ANC government in control and white population emigrating I believe we have seen the end of the Republic of South Africa as a rugby superpower. What a fascinating lesson on the link between sport and culture.

Mat Luamanu's brutal tackle gets him a five week ban

I don't have a problem with the tackle. Spelling Matthew with one t is disgraceful.
