Jared Payne banned for two weeks after red card challenge on Alex Goode

Agree with everything you said. It cannot be compared to a tip tackle because it is a completely different situation, and there should be differennt sets of rules for the 2 areas.

That said, I also think any criticism of the ref is harsh as it is certainly a difficult decision. The ref's first job is player welfare and when an incident is that dangerous it is very difficult. Goode leaving on a stretcher shouldn't really effect the ref's thinking but it probably did.

Payne should be punished for stupidity/recklessness but in no way did he mean to take Goode out or indeed injure him.

Stuart Hogg apologises after red card challenge on Dan Biggar

I don't think a long ban is deserved but the red is totally justified

Vincent Clerc late hit results in Julien Saubade injured for rest of season

God that is a horrible injury. Really dirty late hit that Clerc should have yellow carded for. Fair play to him for apologising and checking on Saubade though.

Gavin Hastings picks his British & Irish Lions starting XV for 2013

Excellent point Jonathan. Reality, get your facts right. Visser also scored 4 tries in the Heineken Cup last season (which is virtually at the same standard as internationals) and two tries against England in a one off game for the Barbarians.

Here's my XV: 1 Healy, 2 Best, 3 A Jones, 4 Gray, 5 O'Connell, 6 Ferris, 7 Warburton, 8 Heaslip, 9 Phillips, 10 Sexton, 11 Visser, 12 Roberts, 13 Tuilagi, 14 North, 15 Kearney. 7 irish, 5 welsh, 2 scots and 1 english.

Thoughts anyone?

What is a Forward Pass?

Excellent work BuzzKillington. Everything you have said is correct and fairly easy to understand. I have tried to get RD to put that original youtube video up before because it makes it clear for everyone. Good work RD!
