Referee checks TMO twice for Chris Henry's controversial try

- Sir, I think there's another camera angle that proves that the try shouldn't be awarded!
- Oh, are you the captain now? I didn't see your original skipper leave the field, he should have made that clear to me.
- Well, I'm not the captain Sir, it's just that if you look aga...

Ma'a Nonu and Quade Cooper combine for awesome Toulon try vs Castres

I wonder if anyone can attempt to explain what Michalak might even have been trying to do with that chip kick. The only thing I can come up with is that it was a "kick-pass" to Nonu, who presumably was expected to then catch it and sprint the length of the field. I suppose that's an creative enough play, but surely about 1% chance at best of delivering a better outcome than a simple touchfinder.

I'd be happier to see that ball smashed into Row X every time.

On the punch:
At first glance this might look like a cheap shot. It is not.

Red #3 quite clearly squeezed Wihongi's Crown Jewels. This is the epitome of a dick move and richly deserves retaliation.

I think the more significant point here is the Hollywood shit by red #3. Even Rivaldo's theatrics at the 2002 World Cup pale in comparison with this.

Honestly, the sight of a tighthead prop writhing on the floor clutching his chin like this makes me feel quite sick.

Highlights from the Army vs Navy classic clash at Twickenham

It's actually worse though isn't it.

The Ash Splash is just an exaggerated version of a natural try-scoring movement. My only problem with it is he bottles it every time and cushions the landing with a knee. I saw Christian Wade dive in for a try the other week and he propelled himself about five feet in the air and slid in to the turf like an Olympic swimmer entering the water.

I'm willing to tolerate the Roko Ball Kiss on account of him generally not acting like a massive tool though.

Rokodaguni at 13 eh? Interesting...

I'm a big fan of the bloke, but I find myself praying for someone to clatter him when he arses about kissing the ball before grounding it.

Owen Farrell yellow carded for knocking out Dan Robson with sickening clash

TWO WEEKS BAN?!?!?!?
Same punishment as Joe Marler got for kicking a bloke in the head!?!?

Someone in charge needs to get a grip and speahead a complete overhaul of the judiciary process and levels of sanction.

Looked like Ruiz saved the NZ player's blushes to me. That was a shit pass that had already eluded the player running onto it - the ref was to the player's left after all.

Silvère Tian banned for MORE THAN A YEAR after Referee abuse

The club fine is a great move. The message is still being sent to the players, but with added emphasis. Not only will you be punished, but you're letting your entire club down and costing your employer money.
Should have fined the player as well, in my opinion. And his mum.

The most draconian punishment available should be inflicted on this heinous individual and all those around him.
