Prop Dean Greyling's great dummy and try against the Crusaders

Love watching forwards doing such unexpected moves, Richie Gray's similarly audacious dummy against Kearny in the Six Nations springs to mind.

John Afoa suspended for four weeks for dangerous tackle

Whilst he deserved a ban for the tackle, (the laws are clear, it was definitely a tip tackle, the penalty for doing one is a ban) it is made much more harsh by the fact he's gonna miss the next HC game.

Front rowers Ben Daley and Dan Palmer square off in Brisbane

No need for yellow card, ruins the rest of the game as one team has such an advantage! (Unless they both get one of course.)

Personally glad to see it handled this way; tempers will flare in rugby, it's kinda part of the game. Yes they're professionals and "should know better" but c'mon, they didn't do any serious damage to each other. They both wanted to give each other a hiding, they both knew what was coming, it's not like one of them was on the floor getting stamped on. It just boiled over somewhat. Don't ruin the rest of the game because of a couple of props on the rampage.

Edinburgh Rugby upset Toulouse in Heinenken Cup Quarter Final

Matanavou try should have been disallowed, some serious blocking going on @2:05.

Yes probably accidental, but not sure how Owens missed it as he was stood mere metres away.

Yeah I spotted that. Understandable frustration though! Can't imagine either side were feeling particularly level-headed with the number of cards and penalties.

I reckon it's a clear ruck, especially to a professional. It was fast ball that Servat wanted to slow down and I'd wager that's also what Nigel Owens though, thus the yellow.
