Jamie Roberts knocks out Blair Cowan with big tackle in Six Nations thriller

Refs are too kind about these cases nowadays. Players' size and power evolved a lot last years, contacts are more and more violent year after year. IRB has to do something to protect the players, rules have to evolve about this.

On this particular case, difficult to say but i think it could have been penalized.
Not a high tackle but Roberts had pleeennnnty of time to crouch and do a proper tackle. He didn't even try or acted like....
But anyways: Forehead right into the temporal area, ouch. Cowan didn't have a chance, even with a helmet

Toulon claim unprecedented treble of European Cup titles with victory over Clermont

A pretty nice final. I expected a lot worse.

Conclusion of this game: Huuuuuuuge lack of power for Clermont which led to too many missed tackles (78% of tackling success).
Combined with stupid mistakes and Toulon's surgical efficiency, they couldn't win this game ..... again.

England and France's Twickenham thriller not enough in dramatic title chase

At 3:35. The entire sequence is a joke: Burrel dives on Leroux but penalty against France ? Then HUGE obstruction from Lawes. Plisson cannot defend on Ben Youngs.

What about the Vunipola's try with a clear knock on?

Richard Kahui makes another good hit, this time on Israel Folau

Not a shoulder charge IMO, just a poor tacke. Kahui attempt to wrap the player with his arms but his position is too bad to do it. To high, bad head position and he's not "straight" (can't really push with his legs). With a bigger dude instead of Folau, i think Kahui could have been smashed.

He did half of the job here, Great anticipation but poor finishing with this tackle.

Clearly not the kind of tackle you can show in tugby schools.

Antoine Battut cited after straight red card for knee against Munster

Red card Oo ????? Yellow is ok. Thank you Mr Barnes for destroying the game so early, another bad call your this referee.
And what about the Murray's punch on Descons. Not even a penalty ????

Fabrice Estebanez knockout hit on David Strettle

Intentional and dangerous. Estebanez did that several times in this game. He should also for for the crapy game from Racing Metro :) . They should never have lose this game. I think 8 weeks suspension could be fair.

Rob Simmons escapes on-field punshment for dangerous tackle on Yannick Nyanga

Yellow/red well deserved. A shame that any refs could see the number.
On the other side i'm happy because Les Bleus won against a full Wallabies squad (which is already weakened). The win as much more value :)

Southland's Hoani MacDonald in induced coma following on-field collapse

Totally agree. That's even more difficult for those, like me, who already suffered of torn ligaments. See that kind of super loop from every possible angles in Full HD almost every week end sometimes ruin the pleasure of good rugby game.
