Delon Armitage suspended for five weeks for two incidents

So the RFU lessen the length of D. Armitage's 4th or 5th ban this year because he pleaded guilty and acted and because of his contrition? And they let his bans run concurrently? And then they try to investigate someone outside of their control? Good job RFU. Stand up job. Fucking idiots.

Jamie Cudmore yellow carded and cited for strike on Jerome Fillol

Queensbury Rules?

I don't hate Cudmore. I just think he's a pussy. Like his videos show.

I didn't say Paul O'Connell was half his size. The first punch, O'Connell is looking at the floor when Cudmore gives him an uppercut. And by the time O'Connell has turned his head towards Cudmore, the second punch is just about to land. That's about as close as Cudmore has gotten to a fair fight and he ended up curled in a little ball on the floor. Thankfully the referee was there to save him.

Why would I watch boxing? There are few players who fight like this on a regular basis. It's not a problem in the sport. And not every fight has to be completely fair, just no pussy cheap shots or fighting with people smaller like Cudmore.

No need for notification, just no hitting a player half his size or not watching. No cheap, pussy shots. You know? Not sure why you would support that type of fighting.

A fair fight is all I want. No cheap shots or blindsiding opponents.

Courtney Lawes big tackle on Wasps flyhalf Nicky Robinson

It's kind of hard to judge "wrapping". All calls are difficult to make at full speed, but judging how a player wraps is hard. Firstly, there's obviously the high speed. Secondly, given how close to the body the arms are to the other players' body, the ref might not be able to see them clearly. Thirdly, it is hard for a referee to judge to what degree a tackler intended to wrap. A referee can't see all the small things, the shoulder positioning, the tension in the arm / shoulder muscles, etc.

As far as I know, the wrapping rule was a move of safety to prevent shoulder charges, etc. on tackled players. If the call is marginal and the tackled player is safe, then there's no need to penalise these kind of things. That's up to the ref I guess.

No, it's not crap. Look at any of his fights / cheap shots. Those are the circumstances he has always fought in. I'd argue the point further, but the videos of his fights save me the trouble.

Watchou was ready to go toe-to-toe with Cudmore, but that's when Cudmore stopped swinging.

Maybe he makes contact (not that I can see it), but there sure as hell isn't a strike or eye gouge or anything dodgy. There was nothing there to warrant repeated punches to the head on a defensless man.

I haven't looked at the clip for a while so I watched it again. He throws a punch as POC is turning his head. Then he throws another immediately. Then POC responds. 90% of these scuffles don't result in punches and he wasn't watching Cudmore, obviously he didn't know that Cudmore was about to lose his head.

I'm not Irish and you didn't show me that he isn't. In fact, you've just shown the opposite.

I didn't say he snuck up on POC, etc. And he didn't wait in between. And why would he be right to punch O'Connell? POC didn't do anything on that occasion.

I'm guessing you're French or Canadian because some of this stuff you just seem to be making up and you seem to have a different idea of a fair fight to most people.

No, I think he attacks smaller players and / or players who are unaware and all the videos of his fights support me in this. Hard luck mate.
