George North knocked out again as Nathan Hughes gets red card for knee

George North is shot. He is obviously now prone to concussions and will remain so forever. There are no exercises in the gym to increase your cerebrospinal fluid.

This is the outcome of bigger, faster, stronger mentality in pro collision sports.

Julian Savea continues to draw comparisons to the great Jonah Lomu

Savea has more tools in the shed. Lomu played in a time where rugby players were still built like normal human beings and he was the lone exception.

Courtney Lawes lays into another unsuspecting flyhalf, this time Jules Plisson

Denis, you're the guy that is responsible for ruining rugby.

What if a player is the process of committing to a tackle and the ball carrier gets the ball away a .001 of a second before? You want to hear a whistle blown? It takes more time to tackle than it does to pass.

Take your reformer mentality to politics or education but please leave rugby alone.

Inspirational leader Sergio Parisse on the Art of Number Eight

Once after practice we had a contest for placekicking and in general the forwards were better than the backs. You're right, why not?

Hawick hold out Heriots for an incredible 66 phases before try is disallowed

Interesting and unusual for sure!

It seemed the attacking team was focusing on not messing up.

Three Kiwis banned for punching or striking in Round 2 of Super Rugby

You guys would have really hated Colin Meads, Martin Johnson, Frik du Preez, and Bill Beaumont.

I consider them legends but they played in those horrible dark ages of rugby before cards and 8 week bans. What thugs!

Three Kiwis banned for punching or striking in Round 2 of Super Rugby

PhilNZ is right. You guys that have never had to sort out a cheater must have had tmo's, cameras, and professional touch judges mic'ed up to the ref your whole careers.

If a guy is continually cheating by illegally slowing down the ball, holding jerseys, or being offsides then yes, he deserves something like a punch. He is the one being negative and not allowing everyone else to play rugby.

Holding jerseys is worse an offense than punching a guy that is cheating. To disagree with Max above, up until recently refs absolutely allowed a self-policing thing to go on.

I'm not referring to any specific incident but players being offside in general:they/we deserve what we get.
