Yellow Carded player winds up fans, soon becomes Red Carded player

Whilst I completely agree with the absolute need for respect, this lad didn't get anywhere close to be really disrespectful. A clown, perhaps. But I thought it was rather good humoured. And it had some entertainment value. So not worthy of another yellow (or straight red) to my opinion. A "stop it, will ya!" would have sufficed.

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.

Host selection process kicks off for Rugby World Cup 2023

One might add games in Wales and Scotland in 2007 for the "France hosting". "Hobbit" not withstanding.

Best Tries from Round 3 of the Champions Cup PLUS Facts and Stats

Ain't this ever so slightly slanted towards British teams?
That being said, some good tries in there. Hodgson' setup was a cracker.

Fair comment. Funny how the underdog status sticks to Scottish teams.

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...
