Taranaki lock produces best around the corner offload you're likely to see

Yawn. So an innocuous post on a sweet offload leads to rehashing the Franks incident? Mate, you're better than this, I think.

We get it, you're pissed about Franks getting no punishment, as would most rugby fans, and you're well justified to feel that way. But continuing to harp on it makes you sound like the old man telling the kids to get off his lawn. The Ugalde incident for Brive just a few days ago was just as bad, if not worse, but your only comments there had nothing to do with the question at hand, but snarky comments about NZ.

The citing process is broken, and you've had good comments about that before, but I think you're starting to see shadows where there are none.

Compilation of the unpunished Teboho Mohoje high tackles against Argentina

This is two games worth right? It's a shocking number of careless and dangerous tackles. What more does the citing commissioner need?

I would just add one other thought. Had this been the ABs, we would have undoubtedly heard the "All Blacks get all the breaks" crowd here. This is one example that shows it's closer to the truth that the tier one nations overall generally get the rub and not just NZ.

Best tries of Mitre 10 Cup - Round 2

I bet the announcers practiced saying "Fukofuka" a few times. Want to make sure you get that one right!

All Blacks beat the Wallabies in Wellington to retain Bledisloe Cup

Ben Smith is just in the middle of everything, isn't he? Just one of those players that is amazing to watch.

TJ Perenara escapes ban after kicking Sam Cane in the face

The question is really how it wasn't brought to their attention. Cane or the Chiefs could have done so, but clearly did not, so it probably went past the deadline without notice. Even with some of the mind-boggling citing decisions lately, there's no way they could have "ignored" a strike like that.

Lions go up a level to beat the Crusaders and reach a home semi final

Crusaders wearing black? I get that they couldn't wear red vs the Lions but didn't realize that was their alternate jersey.

#ThrowbackThursday: Will Skelton's dangerous aerial challenge on Anthony Watson

Fair decision. I love the comment at the very end though. "So is that a penalty for trying to catch the ball?"

Wow, Goenaga was so excited at the end, I thought he was about to fling the ball in the stands before grounding it. Score first man! Then celebrate. :-)

Dan Carter's winning conversion seals dramatic Top 14 semi final win

I had to listen to it twice! Did he really just say "Auckland"? That's blasphemous to say about a Canterbury man. :-)
