USA Eagles have two players red carded in loss to Italy in Houston

I guess you could give either a red, technically, as they are bad tackles. I probably wouldn't have given either though. A yellow for each...

I know intention shouldn't be judged, but I wonder if that had an influence. It looked like both USA players just wanted to nail their opposition, ball or not.

Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 - June Tests and Stirling Mortlock farewell

If it isn't sustainable, then fair enough but it was sustained for quite some time prior to this.

People do want to see highlights but that's not what this site originally supplied and now that the site does primarily highlights, it is no longer unique.

I've seen similar comments like mine posted before. I can't say I've ever seen one asking for highlights when they were not provided with such frequency and or now.

Just throwing up my opinion. Felt this way for quite some time. Still a good site, just no longer as original. No offense intended, all the best. Cheers.

Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 - June Tests and Stirling Mortlock farewell

You mean the days where there were videos which you couldn't get on other sites or on youtube? I remember those... I do go somewhere else. Just drop by once in a while to check for new, unique content.

Relax and grow up buddy. It's just the internet. I'm just a former fan giving his opinion on a once fantastic site. It's a bit hypercritical to call me a spoiled child yet you can't even give a response without resorting to unnecessary name calling, swearing and sarcasm. Learn to give a response like an adult my friend and people might take you more seriously. No worries though, have a good day!

And it's not unique to RD. They just post it up.

I miss the days where RD used to post their own snippets from matches, Midweek Madness, etc. Now it's just highlights and Plays of the Week. Nothing unique. This place isn't what it used to be I'm sorry to say.

Tai Tuifua's dangerous flying tackle on Nicky Robinson

I'm all for taking the referee's side where possible and understanding that they have to make quick decisions under pressure, but Barnes misses so many big decisions. Ireland vs. Wales, no red card for Davies, an undeserved yellow card for Ferris for not even a penalty offense, Clermont vs. Leinster, Leo Cullen punch on prop, Cudmore charge on Isaac Boss, Clermont player flying headbutt and face / eye grabbing on Cullen and more. And now he's missed a massive tackle like that.

It does seem to be a theme with him now. I used to consider him the best until 2 years ago or so.

Leinster hold out against Clermont to reach another Heineken Cup final

I thought Cudmore had a clean game for a change...

It's funny how Sky sports make such a big deal of Cullen's yellow card and their minor penalties or exaggerate them or repeatedly reference them throughout the match (well, specifically Stuart Barnes) and they don't say a word about things like the headbutt on Cullen and this shoulder charge. Two very dirty bits of play much worse than anything Leinster did, and not a single word on them. I wonder what that's about.

I'd like so see another angle to be honest. Barnes could see it better than this camera angle shows.

I want to know why he didn't penalise number 20 for that dirty headbutt on Cullen just before. Charging in and goes straight for his head. Pathetic cheap shot. Then he starts grabbing and shoving his hands in his face.

They do have a great reputation though, don't mean to slate them just noticed there was a bit more than usual for this match.
