Joe Marler fined £20,000 and banned for two matches for Gypsy comment

I'm so glad world rugby is around! It's a horrible thought imagining a planet without a governing body which can step in to make their mark on a supposed finished argument between two grownups who accepted the immediate outcome.

Life ban for horrific deliberate kick to the head by club player in Argentina

Disgusting and such a shame that the game and other players had to suffer as a result of a poor and insufficient punishment.

Silvère Tian red carded for insulting referee Romain Poite

Just goes to clarify that two grown ups consenting to a physical game can't have a disagreement and apologise between themselves and it be ok, the 'nanny state' needs to take control. To me, an apology and an acceptance of wrong doing are some of the most valuable things, if the other person accepts the apology then it should be the end of the matter.

At worst, Marler should have been sent on some Gypsy awareness course or some tunnel of prejudice type of shit.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2h3yDtO5TLg

David Pocock suspended after choking Chiefs number eight

Finedisregard, the guy just comes across as an all out 'nice guy' (aside from this), when he has the skill, toned body, probably money and fairly good looks to get away with being a total dick....

It's a bit like Dan Carter... I'm not really sure he's someone you can ever really dislike.... Even if you don't like him!

To say "Dan Carter is a bit of a dick, so is Pocock etc" will probably only make people think you're an idiot...

However, if you turned around and said "Farrell is a dick" most people would probably go, "yeh I can see where you're coming from"...

Oh certainly, I didn't mean to come across blasé about it. What I meant was, the player has clearly lost his head in the manner that any rational thinking person would wake themselves up. Sergio Parisse red card and ban for the apparent language towards to the referee was interesting, Parisse was unhappy about the entire thing, perhaps livid would be a good word, however he showed utter dismay about the decision, and towards the referee, not anger, or at least not physical anger... from watching the Parisse incident again, I didn't feel for one second that the referee was in any kind of physical danger from Parisse. So Parisse was angry, but had his head screwed on enough to realise that if referees are wrong then they will be dealt with by the appropriate means.

Anthony Watson furious after receiving straight red card vs Saracens

I think this was a combination that lead to Ashtons shove...

He ran back and checked his run to provide a bit of a block, he gets a shove for his troubles - this is fuel to fire part 1.... Now alone this would probably be a "you bitch" type of situation and you'd get on with the game.... however Watson continued on, after the collision to then clatter into Goode.... Fuel part 2....

Then all he really did was shove Watson in the same manner as Watson shoved him... it really wasn't that big of a deal in my eyes...

I agree, but it didn't seem to stop the bunch in the 6N...

It's a massive head loss moment isn't it... I mean honestly what is he going to do if he got hold of the referee? and what exactly would those actions achieve?

Much like George Ford questioning a decision, and the referee saying to him "oh ok, I'll change my mind now you said that!".... of course at a split second we question referees, but then that full second later we think of different ways to deal with it. But to get so irate that you'd try and target the referee at the end of the game - what are you going to do? Beat him up? He still comes out on top...

Has there been some strange planetary alignment or something, seems this last fortnight, or last week has been full of some real head up ass rugby, or head up ass non rugby on a rugby pitch....
