Rumour has it that it was a picture of Nick Cummins vigorously abusing himself while Bryan Habana threw himself to the floor, screaming.

Owen Williams banned for six weeks for making contact with Luther Burrell's eyes

It'll be interesting to see some better angles. 6 weeks seems extremely low for gouging, so I guess that they thought it was something else? It'll be interesting to see more.

Adriaan Strauss suspended for three weeks after tip tackle

Speedee, I competely agree with you. There is a theme on these boards that "the game is going soft" but if there is one unifying message from doctors and medics within the game, it is that the collisions are harder, players are bigger and faster, and the intensity is increased. We don't want to end up with an NFL-like game where the average playing career in certain positions is 4 years.

Rugby is still an intensely physical game; it is simply a matter of making sure that it remains a physical game without becoming ludicrously dangerous. Lift and tip tackles are too dangerous to be allowed to continue unchecked - the 'legs about the horizontal' rule is an easy to enforce way to try to bring this about.

Craig Burden smashes Schalk Brits not once but twice in Heineken Cup Final

You've also got to credit Burden. The rest of the Toulon defensive line was back behind the last foot - he was the only man who was in the correct place. That shows intelligence as well as foot speed and brawn. A lovely bit of play.

That was a sensational kick. That was more like me kicking my pants across the room, vaguely in the direction of the laundry basket...
