The Dimitri Yachvili stamp on Racing Metro's Henry Chavancy

Anton got it right, the referee is not doing the job, then do it yourself!

England stay on track for Grand Slam with win over France

Guys, seriously, stop blaming the referee. I'm French too and I also think some calls were not the right ones, but the truth is that our coaching was really lame. I don't understand why Trinh Duc is replaced at the 55th minute while he was really good. I don't get why we replace the whole 1st row when we were dominating the scrum. Plus Machenaud and Michalak made too many mistakes.

Shortlist for IRPA Try of the Year 2012 announced

I'd vote for Gear or Malzieu as their tries have a team build-up.
- NZ wins an Irish line-out and nicely gets the ball to the Gear who puts on a great solo effort.
- France wins an Italian scrum and Picamoles gets the ball to Malzieu who breaks four tackles.

Sam Warburton red card in Rugby World Cup Semi Final

Red is fair. Is it the ref who kicked penalties and conversions for Wales? I don't think so. Hook, Jones and their teammates lost that game all by themselves.

Sam Warburton red card in Rugby World Cup Semi Final

Red is deserved according to the law. The fact that it is a semi-final doesn't change anything. It actually makes it more obvious. It is watched by a broader audience and the IRB doesn't want rugby to be seen around the world as a sport where you can act dangerously. Hence the (harsh) law and the red card.
Nevertheless, I'm not sure it really benefited les Bleus. France started pretty well but completely stopped playing after the red card while in the same time it gave the Welsh extra motivation. Welshmen can only blame themselves I think. They had opportunities, didn't take advantage of them...too bad.
Allez les Bleus!!!

Rugbydump relaunches on new platform

I'm under the impression that every time I've seen comment sections opened to FB users, it brought the level down (in terms of quality of the comments). So I wouldn't push for that even if I'm a big FB user. It will sure bring more comments though...
