The Wraparound from Rugby HQ - Week 17

I think DrG is on the money with his explanation. I wouldn't be surprised if they also hold GPS trackers etc.

On Nadolo: I think I saw him score a try with an out of this world one hand catch at the end of a Carter crossfield kick. Unbelievable player.

Former All Black Jerry Collins tragically killed in car crash

That's just fucking horrible news. I just hope and pray their baby girl manages to pull through. Really, really sad news.

Midweek Madness - Christian Wade butchers hat-trick try against the Barbarians

I wouldn't be too surprised, Jimmy. One headline story over here last monday was an incident with a drunken hedgehog that was picked up and put in hospital to sober up. Not kidding.

Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

I can see your point. Personally I find making a huge hit on any player of the opposing team the most satisfying feeling. I tried to punch someone only once, after being on the receiving end of a punch...I missed. Felt so emberrased that I never ever felt the urge to do it again.

There's testosterone in boxing but that doesn't mean the boxers start kicking eachother in the head. There are laws. Obey them.

When I started playing there were fights in every match and hardly anybody got sent of, ever, which was ok by me. But things have changed over the year, for the better. There are legal ways to 'dominate your opposition' and hitting, kicking, biting, gouging have nothing to do with 'dominating the opposition'.

I guess I started looking upon this differently when my son started playing. He nearly got his eye poked out and I certainly don't want him to come home missing some teeth because some idiot decided to 'dominate the opposition'.

And don't even start argueing that there should be different rules for different levels. It just doesn't work that way. Just look what happended to wendyball, at all levels..

Well, the referee does not make the laws, he just needs to apply the laws properly.

Why wouldn't the ref let play continue after a forward pass? Answer: because it would not be rugby anymore but American Football. The same goes for hitting someone on the pitch: that kind of stuff has no place on the field of play.

Both red would have been more appropriate in my opinion. It looks like a slap in super slo-mo but it carries the force of a hit.

Both players hitting eachother from behind: trés chique.

Yoann Huget's horrific looking face stamp against Bordeaux Begles

I don't like this bloke, I don't trust him at all and I have the distinct feeling he did in on purpose since he was looking down when he decided where to put his foot. He seems to apply extra force too and he knows instantly what he has done and decides to look concerned. Quite strange that this went unnoticed by the citing officer.

Are you actually also suggesting his home adress is Area 51, Nevada, USA?
