USA 7's player Perry Baker kicks pitch invader after thuggish tackle

For me, the rules are very simple - pitch invaders can be categorised into four groups. Here are those groups and the corresponding actions for dealing with them:

1. Sexy woman, naked - should be actively encouraged by everyone involved in the game. Long, close-up, slow-motion video footage to be captured and posted immediately to youtube / upload request sent to rugbydump.

2. Ugly/fat woman or a bloke, naked - funny. Leave them alone.

(Caveats for groups 1 and 2 - stay away from the players and ref.)

3. Anyone who's not officially involved in the game going onto the pitch with clothes on - Twat. Have the guts to strip off or don't do it. These people should be escorted off the pitch by security, with optional roughing up, then hit with a large fine and some kind of community service.

4. Any pitch invader, (naked or not), interfering with the game itself, making any kind of contact or even looking like they might make contact with any player or official - all bets are off. You have crossed the line and deserve everything that happens to you. The player/official that's been attacked should attract no criticism whatsoever, with no limit on the level of violence in their retaliation.

In this case, I would love to have seen Baker do a Duncan McRae on this prick - he should have left the field a battered and bruised shadow of his former self, with a couple of permanent scars to remind himself of that day he acted like an utter bellend.

Match winning try scored by boy with Down Syndrome goes viral

Ha! I beg your pardon then.

To be honest I'm more impressed that RD can spell Ysgol Brynhyfred...

Well done and good luck to you all!

OK, I'm going to be "that guy" - disappointing that a teacher doesn't know the difference between your and you're...

Lovely story and a nice try though.

Springbok 7's flyer Seabelo Senatla scores sizzling 85m try vs Kenya

Awesome.

But I would have LOVED it if he'd overshot the dead ball line - that would have been fantastic.

Did you see the git strolling nonchalantly away afterwards? Barely looked out of breath!

NEW T-Shirt - Peace and Love, I just don't like C*nts

What's the fun police reference? The three-day ban?

Seems like a reasonable way to give him a PR-friendly rap on the knuckles at the same time as keeping him fresh for the return game.

In fact, I wouldn't mind a bet that Castro will be delighted at skipping a couple of days of training!! Will probably call someone a c*** every week if that's the result...

On the Tikoirotuma replay, just after 5 minutes, did the commentator get Castro-itis?

"Leinster, looking at their most dangerous. C**ts!"

Yep. Not for the first time, I've been enlightened by a visit to these esteemed pages.

Have done a bit of research following willcoll’s post and he is indeed absolutely correct.

In the Farrell case, as you both pointed out, he didn’t get tackled and *then* make an extra move. Lots of separate arm movements (I counted three), but the body slide on the ground was one continuous movement.

I do maintain though that I’ve definitely seen international refs disallow these – the one that stands out in my mind was Ben Cohen about 10-12 years ago, I think against Australia. I’d have to have another look, but as I recall he wasn’t even held in the tackle and quite daintily placed the ball over the line. Ref disallowed it to howls of protest from the crowd.

Are you sure about that? You'd have to add "international referees" to the list, because over the years I've seen quite a few tries disallowed for double movement...
