David Halaifonua red carded for high swinging arm hit on Bradley Davies

Straight red / no citing any day compared with all-too-often yellow / citing / suspension. Good call by the ref .

Gael Fickou back on form with Toulouse hat-trick against Grenoble

Yup, agreed on all accounts there.

On another note, does anyone know why the refs spoke English? I haven't see Top14 games recently but this is rather surprising. As one once famously said: "we are in France, we speak French"... Although it can't be bad for the players to be exposed to a wider variety of refs I suppose.

That being said, some good tries in there. Hodgson' setup was a cracker.

Outcry as Florian Fritz returns to play after severe knock to head

I'm 95% appalled at the stupidity of bringing Fritz back to the pitch. And I am certainly not condoning such disregard for players' safety. Yet, I must confessed that I am 5% in awe at his dedication and have fond memories of such bloodied players muscling through pain 10-20 years ago...
