Mike Tindall sacked and fined by the Rugby Football Union

I don't understand what Tindall has done to be banned. Kicking him from the team forever is a very strong decision which can only be fair for serious offence. Every article I read says it's because of his behaviour off-field.
What exactly did he do in New-Zealand?

Gurthro Steenkamp picks on Gerhard Mostert in big hitting Toulouse debut

Mostert propably doesn't look good to his coaches right now.
Good hits for a prop!

Huge amateur hit from club rugby in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Beautiful hard perfectly legal tackle!
It's probably relatively high amateur level, seeing the surrounding of the pitch.

Dagg and Harinordoquy are clearly 100% in this team of the tournament.
I didn't put any south africans because I barely saw them play.

Beast Mtawarira prevents Keegan Daniel from flipping head first

You're allowed to lift like this on a kick return.
Awesome skills from both of them. Daniel doesn't panic at all even head down, like there's nothing particular happening.

Richie McCaw knee on Morgan Parra, Donald kick, Rougerie eye-gouge, and more

French fan talking:
1-Kick is in though I saw it out when watching live.
2-Doesn't seem intentional from McCaw.
3-I can't see much so no opinion.
4-Joubert did give 50/50 calls to NZ.
5-The fine is ridiculus
General impression: NZ newspapers are worse than the french (tough to beat)

All Blacks win the 2011 Rugby World Cup - France challenge the Haka

The whole french back row performed really well, it was a great game from Dusautoir, Bonnaire and Harinordoquy. Rougerie was outstanding and Trinh-Duc showed how to run the ball.
Basically if it wasn't for the classical -let's give the AB much more time in the rucks- reftit might have gone the other way.
Apart from this very final, the AB deserved that world cup. They played great rugby for four years and in the tournament.
I also think everybody gives too much credit to McCaw.

Shane Williams flipped in huge double hit vs the Wallabies

Shane Williams is such an awesome rugby player.
This is in no way a penalty, it's just a tough challenge and neither players could wrap their arms because they ran into each other. The shock was very impressive and Williams is a tough little man.
Warburton's red card is a completely different situation and cannot be compared.
