Samu Manoa Huge Hit on Billy Twelvetrees in Premiership opening weekend

"The ball is out when the tackle occurs". Are you suggesting it was a late tackle, or just taking the p*$$?

Whether it was high or not may be open to debate, but the timing was absolutely perfect!

The Top 5 Tries of the Week - August 22nd weekend

Not sure if you are being serious . In case you are, I can only imagine he was referring to the turnover that led to Toulouse getting possession just prior to the kick.

Dunedin Streaker gets Smashed by Security Guard Number Eight

If there is a Rule 2(a), I assume there is, at least, a Rule 1 and a Rule 2(b). Enlighten us.

Springboks run riot against strong World XV in Cape Town

Pretty sure the Baabaas played the Lions in Hong Kong. Or does that still count as Britain?

Craig Burden smashes Schalk Brits not once but twice in Heineken Cup Final

Unless Alain Rolland has eyes on the back of his head, he was not aware of Burden's position, so even though I think great refereeing should always be praised, I agree with Jools that in this case it was "accidental" brilliant refereeing.

Canadian Conor Trainor's sublime foot control at the Glasgow Sevens

Great skill.

I actually do wonder if Ronaldo would be proud of that. I think it would be interesting to see some world class footballers try to control a rugby ball.

Liam Williams and Robin Copeland face disciplinaries after double red card

I don't think there is a rule/law against jumping into a tackle, but it can be penalised under the catch-all foul play rule against doing anything contrary to the spirit of the game (or something along those lines).

I meant disciplinary hearing officer or whatever title they have.

Liam Williams and Robin Copeland face disciplinaries after double red card

I am in the same camp as you, with a bit of sympathy for a well-put argument that Payne could have been given a yellow.

I have been waiting for the first post-Payne Northern hemisphere high-profile "player tackled in the air" incident, fully expecting to see a straight red card given the citing commissioner's decision and reasoning. As an Ulsterman, to see Williams get a yellow makes me so angry!

On the Williams tackle, I take it the ref did not see the Ulster v Saracens game. Illustrates perfectly the double standards.
