Ben Flower red carded for vicious punching at start of Super League Grand Final

Disgusting. That should see him sit out for a season.

And before anyone starts with the "Hohaia started it with an elbow to the throat", watch again. You'll see (at 0:13 and again at 1:18) how Flower first runs past Hohaia and clatters him to the ground.

This roid-rage idiot should be hit with a ban and community service.

Midweek Madness - Probably the worst lineout throw ever

All Blacks need to poach this young hooker. He'd slot in seamlessly.

Just how fast is Carlin Isles? HSBC reveals some fascinating stats

Seriously, imagine you're a chubby kid (not big enough to be a prop, but just enough to slow you down), and you see a guy like Isles skinning even the really quick blokes out there week in and week out. What does that do for your rugby hopes and aspirations? How does that grow the game among the slightly sluggish but genuinely keen kids?

Sonny Bill Williams back in the ITM Cup for Counties Manukau

So what's the pattern here, another two years of union before switching back to league (conveniently, some time after the WC)?

Would it be cynical to suggest that all this to-and-fro between the codes is a pretty effective way of maintaining hype?

Guys like Isles are just too fast for rugby. Spoils the game as a fair contest.

Springboks edge All Blacks in another thriller between the two rivals

No buts.

And the game wasn't "decided by a bad call". Every game has some dubious calls going both ways. This one was no exception. There was a number of rucks where McCaw played from an offside position - one where he even plays the ball back while lying on the ground. Ref doesn't always see or blow it up - such is the nature of the game. Just because the Burger call happened in the final minute, doesn't make it any different from all the calls before. It was a tight game that the Boks probably deserved to take by a narrow margin. Which they did.

As I said, it's a loss and it's going to happen from time to time. Take it on the chin and move on.

No buts.

Argentina beat the Wallabies to claim first ever win in Rugby Championship

Great game by the Pumas, and some silly, cynical play by the Aussies.

Glad to see it's not only the Boks that get matched backwards by the Pumas scrum.

Naked streaker starts mass brawl after tackling Varsity match winger

Here's the Baenhoff tackle (and by tackle I mean the hit). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2dozu9rQ7c

Best comeuppance for a pitch invader has to be this fool who gets himself knocked out cold trying to tackle Louis Koen as he slots a conversion for the Boks. Conversion sails over, and Koen barely glances down at the tackler as he picks up his tee. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlLtlJsNfUA

They had to. He was badly exposed.
