Bernard Le Roux shown straight red card for petulant stamp

This is absurd. If you showed this clip to rugby players 15 years ago they would not believe what has happened to our sport.

Rugby is being destroyed by overzealous referees.

Friday Funnies - Bollywood's violently dramatic take on Rugby

I have always wondered why rugby never stuck in India. Most every place else in the empire plays. Too hot, ground too hard, burn too many calories, too violent?

Michael Hooper cited for off the ball punch against Argentina

When was the "age of rugby hooliganism" 1823-2000? It's not rugby hooliganism, it is rugby. There has always been a self-regulatory aspect to the game.

Players will cheat unless they are stopped. Refs never stop this stuff so it is up to the players.

You must be new to the sport.

Michael Hooper cited for off the ball punch against Argentina

How many times have you seen an official deal with it? I don't know if I've ever seen a ref bring back play for a player illegally holding another back.

Hooper did the only thing he could, other than be completely negated.

The way I see it, one player is trying to play rugby and another is trying to prevent him from playing.

New Zealand Barbarians bring back The Wall during win over Maori All Blacks

In my experience penalty plays worked more often than not. I don't know why they ever fell of of favor.

Wallabies snatch dramatic victory after Springboks fail to run down the clock

You guys are right. There are bodies all over the ground at every breakdown with players not supporting their weight. Penalties are arbitrarily awarded. It's a big problem.
