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.

Silvère Tian red carded for insulting referee Romain Poite

Thing is, this has happened before in football (soccer), where referees were "got" after the game. And by got, I mean got dead. So to dismiss this as a hot-headed player having a brainfart is dangerous. Because who knows if he didn't mean way after the game? As in follow him home from the stadium later. Too late then to say "Oh, we had no idea he meant that". If a player threatens an official with "justice" after the game has ended, I say let him go use his phenomenal ruck skills delivering pizza or flipping burgers. Rugby can afford to let him go.

Silvère Tian red carded for insulting referee Romain Poite

The swearing is one thing, but the threat to "get him after the game" is a whole new level. And the fact that he tried to follow through on this should see him banned for a long time. If it were up to me, that would be the end of his season, an possibly next season too. Got to send the strongest possible message that if you pull that shit, your days as a pro rugby player are done.

David Pocock suspended after choking Chiefs number eight

And carried on after they all hit the ground and no one was contesting the maul any longer. Not cool at all.

If that's a red (which it probably is), then what is this mess from Argentina?

Gilbert release the easier handling and far more visible Match XV Plus size ball

Can you imagine the poor hooker with his fat little sausage fingers trying to throw this into the lineout?
