Cian Healy leads with shoulder but somehow escapes red card

I believe he has been cited.

WATCH: Giant Opeti Fonua's biggest hits

That Wilkinson clip is immense, he makes JW look like a small child, flings him away, one of the team mates seems to run to JW's aid as if to check he's alright, then when JW is down Fonua comes over to give him a pat...

That's sort of sums up the greatness this game can be...

Nick Abendanon sin-bin puts inconsistency in the spotlight yet again

Bit of a kick in the teeth to the spirit of the game as well don't you think... Makes you wonder when the TMO will start to become the full time referee and we'll end up with an American football style play with what seems to be a team of referees on the pitch throwing their flags around...

Nick Abendanon sin-bin puts inconsistency in the spotlight yet again

It's incredible that the interpretation of whether one player was in a position to catch the ball or not has come about...

Maitland jumps and does not catch the ball...why not? Because it was gathered up already...

Abendanon does not jump and does not catch the ball...why not? Because it was gathered up already...

Take the opposition player out of both the equations and you can 99% guarantee that both those players would have caught the ball...

It's a ridiculous ruling altogether and I totally agree with Colombes....

Ah, I see the controversy here, this was supposed to be a yellow to Kruis for his elbow to Abendanons head right...

Vincent Koch loses shirt then does what any honourable prop would do

Ah...I guess it's become more acceptable for teams to have their Kochs out on the pitch these days...

Least Vincent Koch lost his top and not his bottoms otherwise that might not have been the only Koch seen on the pitch that day...

English teen prospect scores bruising solo try in U-18 final

I find rugby content has an aura of being somewhat stale... I used to love the game for the wonderful balance that was between skill, luck and smash... TSRB is a fine example of the game, massive hits, a bit of biff and some fantastic try saving tackles/efforts..

I don't know if rugby these days has greater skill level etc, but it seems to lack the heart that I feel used to be there more so. Teams like Fiji, Georgia and Japan etc are showing heart and it's so warming to people..

Not sure where I'm going with this, but seems that because the game is becoming so professional, lines are becoming finer and finer and finer, and now we argue over mm rather than metres... And as a result the costliest person to those mm seems to be the referee..hence everyone has to have a bitch about it...

But I agree with you.

Carlin Isles inexplicably fails to score what would have been a great try

Ahh horrendous, he is bloody quick though, how he managed to start on the inside of the defenders but still run around them on the outside is unreal. Possibly a bit of luck with the last man back slipping, but he took the gap all the same... But that's one of the most awful errors, but at least everyone saw the funny side (to some degree)
