Flyhalf killer Courtney Lawes adds Charlie Hodgson to his list in Premiership final

If there's anything I'd rather see when defending, for the life of me I can't think of it! (ok, the ball coming into my hands with clear pitch ahead of me, but that aside!)

Adriaan Strauss suspended for three weeks after tip tackle

not sure I agree, you can see his elbow raised well above his head so he is tipping the player. If he had simply lifted him and gone to ground it would have been a perfect dump tackle. Also the guy didn't go down on the flat of his back, he went down sideways on his shoulder and had to put his arm down to make sure he didn't hit the ground head first.

You risk injury by playing rugby, there's no need to add unnecessary risks on top of everything

Bryan Habana issues apology for taking a dive in Heineken Cup Final

In fairness he did come out and make an apology which is more than most would/have done. It's not the first time someone's tried to milk it on a rugby pitch, rare yes, unheard of unfortunately no. But it is the first time (at least for me) that an apology like this has been made.
He's had a long career and so for one instance of stupidity (for which he's apologised) I wouldn't go branding him..."officially" or not.

Great refereeing by the way

Tom Court shown straight red card for tip tackle on Devin Toner

I dunno, if Toner hadn't tried to turn himself around in the tackle he would've gone to ground on his back, probably with his legs under his shoulders. I would say that the tackled player should shoulder some part of the responsibility in his own safety. Harsh on Court, he was singled out as he was the one going forward, but he was one of 2 tacklers.
