Ma'a Nonu's bumps off Colin Slade with massive charge

Slade really needs to look at his technique. He rushed up far to quick & was carrying far too much speed still, realised who it was, and then put his head on the wrong side again all because Nonu saw it and changed his line slightly!!

George Pisi's brutal blindside hit on Nick Abendanon in Challenge Cup Final

Not quite. I can think of a few that are probably better (in my opinion) Foden/Tait/Lewsey/Brown to name a few.

Salesi Ma'afu banned for one week for punch on Tom Youngs that went viral

WelshOsprey, your an arrogant prick. Typical of the Welsh (although not all Welsh). BET YOU DONT EVEN PLAY RUGBY!!! Just because you may not HEAR about it, doesnt mean it doesnt happen. Believe me, i play the game hard and fast. Im an advocate of rugby being a physical, contact sport and would rather smash people all day then score trys!! But their is NO PLACE in the game for going above the horizontal in a tackle!! Tip tackles are dangerous.

Try googling Judah Campbell, poor guy was on the receiving end of a tip tackle last year playing amateur rugby and broke his neck!! I wouldnt wish that on anyone, EVEN YOU!!

Tom Court shown straight red card for tip tackle on Devin Toner

SPOT ON MATE. It doesnt matter if the elbows go above the 90, i believe its if the players body passes the 90% thresh hold. As you can see here clearly from the replays, it is dangerous and whilst it may not be intentional, the player does go above 90, is driven with downward force and does land on his neck!!! Not often i say this, but the ref is 100% correct

The Shortball from Rugby HQ - Round 9

Wow, how downhill has this show gone?? CGI, Scripted lines, cheesy camera angles, focusing on the games!!!!! PLEASE. GIVE US BACK THE OLD SHOW. Wheres the banter. Wheres the tries. Wheres the HITS? Not 1 mention of a Falcon, Piggies vs Princess's or CHEERLEADERS!!! FML. Perfectly good example of some fucking do gooding TV exec thinking they could make the show better by giving it some content/format and moving it into the 21st Century. Well that TV exec can suck my COCK!!

CNN reports on the growth of Rugby Sevens in the USA and globally

At the end of the day, life and sport, as much as would love to be about the passion and love for the GAME, is as much about money as the reason you get up to go to work every morning!! But having been to many different American sporting events, what i will say about the US fans, is they are MORE LOYAL and MORE PASSIONATE than almost any other fans iv met before EVER!! And i for one am VERY excited about growing Rugby GLOBALLY. Its a game for EVERYONE.

Now grow up, before you get knocked back down!!

Wallabies and British & Irish Lions teams named for first Test on Saturday

Tipuric & O'Brien i think can feel hard done by. But no one can feel as hard done by as QUADE COOPER. Yes the guy has some issues and hes OBVIOUSLY rubbed Deans up the wrong way, but he is so unpredictable & has an eye for a gap/pass & that strikes fear into the teams that like to play an organised game (like the Lions & England).

I cant wait to see what Hooper plays like. I think he could be a real thorn in Wales, cough cough, the Lions side, just as Mowan can do.

All in all, i think Gatland has pretty much got it right with what he has available to him. I would PREFER to see Tuilagi or Roberts play alongside BOD, they would of kept O'Connor busy, but Davis is a good replacement!!
