Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

Ha, yeah, the apology pro-forma. They should print a load off ready for Delon Armitage and Dylan Hartley - is it something about that name and its variants?? Come to think of it, I remember at my school Dillon was a standard playground insult, loosely based on the word dildo, as in "you dillon, I can't believe you missed that!" - but I digress...

Here's a version of the heartfelt message pro-forma that you can use in your own relationships too:

"Unfortunately there is no commentary..."

Don't know about anyone else but I'd be very happy to watch more rugby like this and enjoy the sound of the game itself and the roar of the crowd, maybe actually hear the ref instead of some dick talking over him. Some proper analysis is always welcome but when you think about it most commentators don't add much, just describing what you can see for yourself.

Yeah, quite conspicuous by its absence!

Average.

When I play flyhalf, the centres do this sort of thing about 10 times in a single match...

No, pretty much as Lord Kay described it:
"Just a little push in the chest and he grabs his face."

Very well put Reality. The difference is exaggeration versus outright fakery.

To illustrate with two examples from wendyball:

Indeed. Partly because you know that he's just copied and pasted what the club's PR manager has emailed him and told him to post anyway. But, yeah, it's a start.

Disgraceful tackle by Flood, I just can't understand what he was thinking.

What about that "tackle" by Flood though!?!? Has there not been a citing for that? About as pointless and unnecessary as it was reckless and dangerous. I mean Watson's on the ground a couple of inches from touch and 10m from his own try line.

I simply cannot fathom what was going through Flood's mind when he though there was any need to even make the "tackle". Also, what the **** was he protesting to the touch judge about??

I haven't seen a neck twisted so sharply and violently since that Chong Li in the film Bloodsport (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0ZLkDFFPWQ for the young/uninitiated).

Never mind banning people for several months if the bloke they tackle "goes beyond the horizontal" while being safely lowered to the ground. Surely this sort of "tackle" is far more likely to damage necks and brains.

Clancy obviously saw it (and on the big screen in slow motion too), because he penalised it. But why not even a yellow card??
