Francois Steyn banned for 5 weeks after rescinded red card is overturned

Stroudos said it below, to me it's the fact that Steyn was the one 'lifting'.

A lot of people say 'take the 9 out and would it be a spear/tip'... I guess the argument could be, "not 100% sure, but if you took Steyn out of the tackle it definitely wouldn't have been a spear/tip'..

George North knocked out again as Nathan Hughes gets red card for knee

I was wondering if this was the case myself... trying to sort of rough him up by brushing past...

Not saying it isn't an appropriate retaliation... but it's still worth a ban ;)

Midweek Madness - Player throws second ball into ruck to halt promising attack

Sidestepper has got the actions that lead up to the incident correct.

It was clearly an obvious 'cheating' incident, if he had been trying to throw the ball away it would have been off to his left, or behind him... a la shortest distance.... However I think what lead up to the incident itself should be taken into consideration before any punishments are handed out, for instance the Bordeaux player did add the kicked away ball to the mix in the first place and that was sort of in the way already. I think if the whole way to make it 'fair' would be to actually go back to where the original penalty was and start again with the penalty there.

Not sure if you're trolling...

Bakkies head butted a guy... Granted it was Cowan and I don't know how long he was banned for... but head butting someone like Bakkies did deserves a ban.

If Ashton didn't come across as such a knob then I'd probably be a fan of him, but his 'Ash splash' thing came and went quicker than a British summer...
