Argentina prop gets heavy ban after stamping on Joe Marler's face

Oliver regarding that comment made to you, yes that's appalling for numerous reasons... Pleb fan shouting for one.
Shouting about killing a player (I guess he meant smash, but if imthe word was kill, then it's further wrong)
Shouting at children in that manner (maybe he was young too though)
Then if course the racial slur.

The differences I'd see between this and the Marler incident is this:

Someone made a reference to kill you because of the colour of your skin...

Marler got the attention of a guy because of his heritage..

I'm no traveller/gypsy expert and where to two coincide (or don't as ths case may be)... But clearly they're both travelling people... So again, I can only suggest had he said "oi, welsh boy", "oi taffy boy", no one would really care...

Gypsy boy was not a great example of communicating with others... But, he did not threaten Lee with violence/death, he did not insult him as far as calling him a 'dirty', 'thieving', 'scummy' gypsy boy.... It was, I guess the same as someone saying "oi brown boy" or "south American boy" to you if you're involved in a scuffle of sorts.... Sure it's not cool, but when you look in the mirror, you'll see yourself and to describe yourself you might say the same thing.

I'm French but tanned due to South American heritage.
Lee - I'm welsh, I'm fair (and ginger which Marler could have said something about), and I'm from a travelling background.

It's nothing to be upset or offended by. Of course if someone threatens to kill you or abuse you for that reason then of course anyone would understand outrage!

Six Nations set to introduce trial Bonus Points system in 2017

Too smart I'm afraid.... We'd make every other decision ever made looking awful, they can't risk that, so they'll employ the services of nitwits..

Elliot Daly suspended for 3 weeks after red card for dangerous challenge

I think that's the exact reasoning.... It looks nasty, therefore doesn't do the game reputation any good (for some people)...

Yes dan... and if you look at the talk surrounding a new team joining right now, we're saying something like 20 years... so we've gone from a 90 year gap, to a 20 year gap (potentially)... so we're looking at Georgia joining in 2020, then what following that trend it's 2024 before the next team joins, then we're down to about 2025... then after that it's a new team at least every couple months....

Wasn't there a Parisse red card when he did jump for the ball but got a shirt tug, ended up colliding and I think he saw a red for it....

I can remember the exact incident, the names however can somewhat allude me.... It's like that headbutt years and years ago... Was it Tom James? I can't remember but it's my go to on headbutts also!
