Yes, quite appropriately rhymes with runt.

Jason Emery suspended for 4 weeks for dangerous challenge on Willie le Roux

Yes, because if he was he probably would have punched le Roux afterwards too. Thank goodness he's not. :)

Most people look at the spelling of that surname and have no idea it rhymes with twat. But once you know, it's the easiest thing in the world to remember. :)

Willie le Roux survives horror landing as Jason Emery sees red

That's the worst fall I've seen in ages - the weight of his legs and lower torso continuing in a direction that his pretzelled neck couldn't accommodate. I cringe every time I see it. Thankfully he's okay. The suppleness of his body as he hit the ground probably saved him. If that were me I'd be in a wheelchair. Mind you, if that were me I'd only get about two feet off the ground, so I guess it's a moot point.

Joe Marler could be in trouble again after appearing to kick an opponent in the head

I swear Marler sometimes forgets that there are 16 live TV cameras and that the ref is miced up. What a wally.

The yellow card here is debatable, particularly since Poite had ruled the opposite earlier in the game, saying that the player had gone down before impact. Seen in isolation, this one could probably have deserved a card.

What isn't debatable is that Romain Poite is a very poor referee and should not be getting games of this magnitude. There is no consistency in anything he does, and every ruck, scrum and tackle ends up a complete lottery. At one stage he was trying so hard to keep Wasps in the game.

But despite Poite, this was still a very entertaining game.

Kenya upset Fiji to win first ever Sevens Series tournament!

What a performance by Kenya. And what a great tournament in Singapore. Got to love what sevens has done to world rugby. 20 years ago rugby had a relatively tiny global footprint. Now it's everywhere.

Seven Brilliant Tries from the 2016 Hong Kong Sevens

As far as team tries go, that last one by Cecil Afrika is just phenomenal.

Also love the double Samoan sidestep by that large American fella.

Sunwolves lock Tim Bond suspended for 4 weeks for dangerous tackle

Well he wasn't wrong. That was a horrible tackle, and he had every right to argue the case. Captains do that all the time.
