Canadian Conor Trainor's sublime foot control at the Glasgow Sevens

If by 'interesting' you mean 'utterly annoying' I'm completely with you ;-)

Toulon aiming to defend title after tense semi final win over Munster

I can't even remotely imagine what rugby without Wilkinson will be like. I hope the best team will win. And for his sake I hope it will be Toulon.

Saracens fly through to Cup Final after dominant performance vs Clermont

Ashton always got a disproportionate amount of slack for his showboating. I really wonder how many hatefull comments people like Rockocoko/Serevi/Paulse/Ioane and even Shane Williams (remember his last try in the red jersey?) received.

I agree with you: to me he looks like a quality player (which he proves objectively by scoring 11 tries in a HC campaign that has not yet finished). And until proven otherwise I believe he is okay as a human being too.

Midweek Madness - Player falls to floor after worst fight ever

Actually Dan, I had to watch the video twice because at first I had difficulty believing what I saw. Only when I started taking notice of the reaction of the crowd I was completely sure that he was taking a piss. That crowd would have reacted quite differently otherwise.

To make a long story even longer by adding another sentence: I can understand your (and my own) confusion.

If he'd played football he would have been stretchered off.

Liam Williams and Robin Copeland face disciplinaries after double red card

It could become the rugby equivalent of soccer's 'trying to screw your opponent over'.

Liam Williams and Robin Copeland face disciplinaries after double red card

Good point! I believe there is also a law that forbids jumping into a tackle. Not quite sure which one it is though. But jumping to catch every ball that's been thrown your way is still an option. Strange penalty.

Jared Payne banned for two weeks after red card challenge on Alex Goode

With the growing concern over player wellfare it is not strange to see punishments grow more severe. The fact that penalty's/cards/suspensions weren't given before, does not mean they should never be given.

Maybe, in light of the recent serious neck injury in the NRL, referees have received instruction to be extra strict on anything that involves risking serious neck injuries.

Jared Payne banned for two weeks after red card challenge on Alex Goode

Had Payne jumped for the ball, the situation would have been different. There probably wouldn't even have been an injury. Red was justified IMHO and it was quite a brave decision by the official. Not sure he should have a further ban.

New Zealand beat England to win the 2014 Hong Kong Sevens

Actually, after looking at it for about 20 times: the tackler does not even seem to touch him. But it does look like he looses the ball before grounding. I would love to see that from a different angle but to me it looks more like he is dissapointed with himself.
