Referee Nigel Owens chats to the TMO, on an iPhone

The good refs you don't notice. This guy wants to be famous.

Joe Pietersen's sensational try for the Stormers against the Highlanders

That's exactly what I would have done in that situation.

Ref makes a great call. Go back to playing rugby.

Jannie Du Plessis slapped with off-field yellow card after starting dust-up

Yeah, so what does a white card do exactly? Lets a citing commission review something they already review? Too much.

Lwazi Mvovo hits the turbos for a great try against the Brumbies

Nice finish, but that offload was superb. We need some 2nd rower highlights Rd!

Andy Goode red carded for high hit against former team Leicester Tigers

Pretzel, I usually agree with you but there a few things that should be straight red:1) Talking about the ref's mama 2) dancing in the try zone 3) using a foreign object and 4) play-acting injuries. Other than that everybody deserves a warning.

Ben Youngs cited for striking London Irish's Jamie Gibson

Youngs has a bad history, but he is the one trying to play rugby, the LI#8 is trying to PREVENT him from playing. The #8 is cheating, not Youngs. What is a guy to do? There are times in rugby when you should have a right to punch somebody in the face, when they are preventing you from playing, for example. These citing commissions are way out of hand. The game was better before cards came into it. Penalty to Leicester.

Danny Cipriani's great try and celebration against the Western Force

When did this become okay in rugby? Guys acting like this was unthinkable just 10 years ago. The culture of the sport is changing, not for the better.

Classy players don't do dances. Plus the Dougie is old as hell. These corny dances were played back in the early 80's in the NFL. Somebody should knock him out.

Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 - Round 4

Watching Cory Jane taunt another player after the try is one of the uglier things I've seen on this site. If somebody from the Highlanders knocked him out I wouldn't have a problem with it. We give out 5 week bans for hard tackles and let this stuff go?

Try dances need to be wiped out because it is unsporting. Jerks have been doing this in American football since the 70's. We're better than that rugby world!
