Ma'a Nonu gives his own version of Nigel Owens' "This is not soccer"

Yep, cheap shot from behind, no arms, long after the ball had gone. How arrogant to moan about the card.

Joe Marler will face no punishment for 'Gypsy Boy' comment

We all knew Eddie Jones would preside over an edgier England. This includes winning the championship, for which they must be congratulated, and mocking people who are offended at racist abuse, for which they must not.

Regan Ware's huge hit on Seabelo Senatla stops South Africa dead in their tracks

Great hit but why was that a knock-on? I clearly went backwards relative to the player's momentum and was caught behind him.

Rugby Tactics: Quick Ruck Ball Key to Wasps Success

Me too. I was never coached at a high level, and seeing more of the mini-battles that go on in every phase enormously enhances my enjoyment as a spectator, despite not playing anymore.

Michael Hooper cited for this dangerous cleanout on Mike Brown

I think you're right. The fact that Brown showed such good a) balance and b) character and c) self control may have cost him, and that can't be allowed to stand. And I too find this a difficult thing to claim neutrality on.

Nemani Nadolo banned for dangerous David Pocock clean out

No, Nadolo was very unlucky. Reading the citation, it was actually the fact that Pocock ended up being dropped on his head, and the suspicion that it wasn't entirely an accident (the bit about Nadolo twisting his body to throw DP aside).
Wood however was cynical, the ball had rolled away, as can be clearly seen here: https://vine.co/v/exweQzegeOW

Nemani Nadolo banned for dangerous David Pocock clean out

Thanks for posting this RD. It was a mystery to me as I'd not seen anything. That looks very harsh to me. How did Nadolo get a ban for this and Tom Wood not get one for a blatant kick to the head?
