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!

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.

Jamie Heaslip accepts cited Pascal Pape's apology but is out injured

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

Rugby players squashing their grievances after the game is not something that is newly acceptable.

When things get out of hand and another sportsmen apologizes what else can a man do but accept the apology?

The only other possibility is that 100% of rugby players will act within the laws 100% of the time. That's not realistic in rugby or any sport.

Well, what are players supposed to do when the opposition is offside?

World Rugby accepts George North should have left field after concussion

This is not good for the sport.

2nd impact syndrome is a real thing, so is CTE. As a youth referee we spend a lot of time on concussion management. I can't believe this stuff still happens at this level. I send kids off all the time for concussions and follow up with the coaches and parents. They're out for the next two weeks automatically.

Between the ref, the touch judges, the medical team, the coaches upstairs in the box, his teammates or opposition SOMEBODY saw what happened and they didn't think to step in.

When you see a guy get knocked out, tell the ref. If you are a ref and a player has been concussed get him out immediately and follow up after the game.

Belgian rugby club scores over 350 points in bizarre club fixture

To travel, put on a rugby jersey, warm up, and let guys walk into your end goal…I don't get it.

At least they didn't get skunked!
