Sean O'Brien cited for punching Pascal Pape in opening minute of Cardiff clash

I disagree. If the ref had seen this in the game, I suspect it would have been a straight red. I think the citing commissioner will see it the same way. It's a clear punch that lands hard. No grappling and shoving and what-what. I think O'Brien will get at least one week off, regardless of the lawyer. Maybe even two or three. Which is a pity, as he really brings a lot to this team. And I'm sure he's not the first guy to have wanted to punch that infuriating manchild, Pape.

Sean O'Brien cited for punching Pascal Pape in opening minute of Cardiff clash

Guilty and deserving of a ban, for sure. The only mitigating factor here is that it was the solar plexus of Pascal Pape and not of someone nice.

Japan win three matches but bow out of Rugby World Cup 2015

Next World Cup is going to be a cracker. I have a feeling Japan will put on quite a show.

Ireland victorious over France but lose key men for Quarter Final

Great game by Ireland. But France were really poor. Their midfield was nowhere. Did they even have two wings on the field? It was like Ireland were playing against Spedding and a couple of flankers.

Scotland edge Samoa in classic Rugby World Cup match in Newcastle

What a game. What made it so tense was the repercussions for Japan. Without disrespecting Scotland, I suspect most people were cheering Samoa on to get Japan into the play-offs. I was.

5 of the best tries from week 3 of RWC 2015

Um no, Australia were more dominant than a 6ft Amazonian woman in leather chaps and stilettos, brandishing a 10 foot whip, with her heel on your groin.

Embarrassed Joe Launchbury admits receiving Man of the Match award was strange

Embarrassed Joe Launchbury admits receiving Man of the Match award was strange

I feel sorry for Launchbury. Because it's not like he wasn't good. In fact, he played a blinder and was probably one of the three or four best players on the field. But the award really should have gone to Foley and every sand and sober person knows this.

Also seems that the organisers know they have a rubbish MTOM system here, but yet they persist with it. If it doesn't work, then can it.

The deranged screaming towards the end of the Scotland try deserves a special mention.
