- Bref, Thalion law, in a civilized world, not longer valid. :)

Michael Hooper suspended for one week for striking Nicolas Sanchez

- "The Australian Rugby Union have issued a statement saying that they are "extremely disappointed" that SANZAR have appealed the sanction handed down to Wallabies flanker Michael Hooper."

- "Furthermore, the ARU intends to cross-appeal the Judicial Officer's original finding that the player was guilty of committing an act of foul play," said the ARU in a statement."

Yep, Hopper must, unmistakable, awarded "the fair play" trophy. :)

Michael Hooper suspended for one week for striking Nicolas Sanchez

...is ridiculous, Nigel Hampton the same.

Well, yes, with Sanchez, "you put your finger on the wound". Not only Sanchez should be suspended, but the entire team of Argentina plus 20 players from the All Blacks for "indiscipline infestation". And not a week, but by the end of the year.
Forgive my sarcastic tone, but...Good luck ! :)

"They clearly think he's worthwhile to bend the rules so he can play. Where's the suspension? A club game? What a joke. But good luck to them." Stu Wilson

PS
"Still no news on what ban Sanchez will get for his play-acting?" ...ban for what ?! :D
Maximum maximorum: sin bin and penality try.

Brilliant Richie McCaw lineout move first done vs Springboks by Samoa in 2013

"McCaw as the receiver was nearer than 2 meters from his team mates."

- I suppose you measured the distance with rangefinder. :)

Michael Hooper cited for off the ball punch against Argentina

Cheika, a ruffian, no doubt, in my opinion. Hooper's reaction was not a surprise to me.
`tahs and "the new" Wallabies have the same behavior as their coach.

Highlanders cruise into Super Rugby final with good win over champion Waratahs

Brilliant game for Highlanders and even entire season ! Congratulations and go Highlanders !
Waratahs, led by Cheika, in my opinion, became a team with a ruffian behavior. Too bad!
