Midweek Madness - Marland Yarde recovers from cramp to score a try

making an effort to get back and loitering to conserve energy are two very seperate things. One is fine the other is simple off-side. You try and play behind the ball, that's rugby, strategically placing yourself around the pitch has no place in the game, it would be an absolute mess....or maybe your whole post was written in sarcasm?

If a player needs treatment he should get off the pitch unless it's a serious injury in which case play should be stopped.

Midweek Madness - Marland Yarde recovers from cramp to score a try

if a teammate knocks the ball on it's a knock on obviously, offside from knock-on doesn't exist.

Cracking hit on Munster's Johne Murphy by Zebre's Quintin Geldenhuys

was at the game, DrG's right, the big man's head was down and he's not one for buying dummies. Great hit, pity about the 2nd half from the Zebre.

Dimitri Yachvili carded for swinging arm on Delon Armitage

Oh please, the game is full of non-whites who don't get criticised, the truth is Yachvili is nowhere near as dirty or unsportsmanlike as Armitage. Just look at the list of videos under the clip....and that's not the half of it!

George North apologises for Genia taunt in first Test, PLUS new Lions shirts

I didn't like when Armitage did it in the Heineken and I didn't like when North did it here, you have to admire however the way he's dealt with the interview and how humbly he was in apologizing, fair play to him.
As for the try...speaks for itself really!

Tongan Eddie Aholelei punches Jebb Sinclair after fight with Canada

Nah man, these are terrible tackles and as you say they are the keep your head down and hope for the best times!
The islanders getting singled out has nothing to do with racism and everything to do about their tackling style, which they are actually quite proud of in most instances. It's always on the limit, spectacular when it comes off well, very dangerous when they get it wrong.
It's time they started putting a bit of margin between dangerous and legal the same as everyone else, and then they'll find they get treated like everyone else. Samoa are making strides without giving up their physicality, Tonga are quite a bit behind for now I reckon.
It's not going to change over night, but the last thing they need is a coach who tries to scapegoat...he should be grateful his 13 stayed on the pitch after kicking everything off in my opinion!
