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?"

Spain shock Samoa to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics 7s

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. :-)

A look at the USA's preparations for the new Sevens Series

Really just hoping they qualify! Great team but nothing is guaranteed. A first win over NZ though should do wonders for the team confidence.

A look at Jonah Lomu's 15 brilliant Rugby World Cup Tries

Great to see all those in one place. Having been at the SA vs USA match where Habana matched Lomu's record, there was something that bugged me a bit about it. Here are the opponents they each scored against:

Lomu WC tries
England 5
France 2
Scotland 2
Ireland 2
Italy 2
Tonga 2

Habana WC tries
Samoa 6
Argentina 2
Scotland 1
Namibia 1

I realize that you play whatever opponent is in front of you, and I have a lot of respect for Habana as a person and a player, but it's amazing that Lomu scored nearly all of his against the top tier nations. RIP big guy.
