Former player Glen Jackson will ref the 2016 Super Rugby Final

It does seem odd to have done away with neutral refs. Does anybody know how it works in the rabo?

Silvère Tian banned for MORE THAN A YEAR after Referee abuse

What exactly is the rationale for fining Oyonnax? The club had no control over his outburst. And as can be clearly seen, his team mates did everything they could to stop him going back for another pop. You can hardly blame the culture of the club. Fine the nobhead who did it.

Courtney Lawes demolishes Owen Farrell with another trademark tackle

Anyone else notice how weak Lawes' ball carrying seems these days? Destructive as ever in D no doubt, but bolt upright with ball in hand. Always looks like he'll get turned over.

Manu Tuilagi penalised for big shoulder on Winston Stanley

Pushes are legal, are they not?

Chris Ashton penalised for dragging Luke Marshall down by the face

At this point, Ashton getting himself banned would probably be of benefit to English hopes in the 6 Nations!

Clermont flanker Viktor Kolelishvili shoves referee Wayne Barnes

Obviously not condoning this - but maybe worth considering if he doesn't speak English?

Manu Tuilagi returns from injury to make big tackle on lock Courtney Lawes

There's a lot of criticism over Tuilagi's distribution, which I'm not sure I understand. His passing and offloading game are both excellent. It's not like he's playing 10, so what exactly is he lacking? A Cipriani-Tuilagi-Slade combo could be devastating.
