Nick Wood red carded after 73 seconds for stamp on Jacques Burger

I love the physicality of rugby but this is just thuggery. I don't buy the whole 'clumsy' line for one second and although he perhaps didn't 100% mean to stamp on his head, you can bet he didn't care what part of Burger's body fell beneath him - he wanted to make an impact regardless.

I suspect the Horwill defence might be deployed, but he should be a man and take a ban.

Ronan O'Mahony back heel flick sets up try for James Coughlan vs Edinburgh

Well, he definitely didn't mean for that to happen, just tried to get something on the ball as it stuck under him. Doesn't come close to Zebo's tekkers.

Two Argentina players cited after eye-gouge and biting claims in Mendoza

Hard to see exactly what went on so i wouldn't expect long bans to be imposed. Argies lost their cool in the last twenty where so many test matches are won or lost and it played straight into SA hands.

Discipline is everything!

USA Eagle Samu Manoa's huge hit on Peter O'Mahony

That was great, but it was made all the more watchable for the Yankee Doodle commentary. I hope rugby can really kick on in the States, a couple of big scalps on the 7s circuit and at the world cup and things could take off nicely for them.

Paul O'Connell knocks out Dave Kearney with clumsy kick to the head

The ball doesn't look at all like it's there to be kicked, unless you go straight through the player's head first... which is what POC did! I'd position it somewhere between clumsy and malicious... I'll plump for reckless.

Bakkies Botha injures Marcos Ayerza with big charge towards tryline

Looks like a case of sour grapes from Cockerill to me. Stone me though, imagine trying to stop Bakiies on the charge like that?!?! Credit to Ayerza for putting his body on the line.

The Rugby team Harlem Shake collection

For what it's worth, I'm loving the praying Arab in the wasps video, but overall... Wigan have got the juice!

O2 Inside Line - Season 3 Episode 6

Does that presenter actually do anything? These videos have really lost their way - they lack the charm and insight the last presenters brought in. She's fit but I guess she can't be much good at having a conversation otherwise that would feature in the vids!
