Racing 92 blow Munster away to reach Europe final

Regardless of how good a team is, even the worlds best can have their off days and decisions go against them... If I was an NZ supporter and next match was against Somalia or something, I'd still suggest an air of humility around on the off chance some kiwis get red carded etc..

...I was going to edit your original comment to make it sound less footballery, but it's not possible.. fun fact, "the pathetic play acting and diving" certainly will work if the referee falls for it, it could result in a red card for Leinster and all of a sudden it could totally change the dynamic of the game...

Regardless, why would you hit the deck?

Sounds like a side order to accompany couscous and hummus...

But you make a valid point mon ami.

Bulls prop suspended for biting Rebels back rower in the strangest of places

I still agree with you generally TFR, I suppose the only argument these days FOR 'throwing a cheeky nibble', is that throwing hands is a 99% chance of a send off these days. I don't condone having a nibble (with exception to my aforementioned scenarios) as much as I don't condone diving, however given the direction the game has gone, it's no wonder certain aspects can become more prevalent.

No worries. Can you think of any other referees that have had a word, or has it just been Owens? From my knowledge, he seems to be the only one that's taken it on board.

I don't care what Murray or any player did beforehand or even afterwards. Diving is pathetic regardless of team/nationality/position, it's a self induced event, brought on by the drive to make the dangerous game safe and I can see why players do it - but it's low and it's even lower that referees rarely take a stance on it.. I believe Nigel Owens is the only referee to have drawn attention to a couple incidents and he has only ever issued a verbal chastising...

World rugby hasn't taken any opportunities after their 'promise' to punish it, and as said before, cleaning up the game has directly lead to diving.

To be honest I missed the game. But by all accounts the right team won, which is good of course. Also, the fact that Racing, which has generally been a bit "middle" has beaten one of the traditionally big power house teams, is very good for the competition, allows teams to reflect of their naivety and also the with need to reflect on their hard work to get to where they are.

The rest of the stuff can now be discussed on a new video posted by RD.

Well done Racing!

Depends on the circumstances, the stomach is a bit of a low blow and I can see any reason...unless someone belly flops your face...

But bites have happened on arms when someone is pressing a forearm to someone's face, or gnashing down on someone's finger as they try and fish hook you is another example of an acceptable chomp...

..but all in all, yeh..

Vakatawa

Someone just give Vakatawa a tutu and a 9 shirt..
