Bath and Gloucester get to know one another in mass brawl at the Rec

Not sure I agree with Hamilton being carded for defending himself when he essentially got jumped by both the Bath 2nd rows...

Highlights of Toulon vs Clermont, including Rougerie fight & Smith yellow

Ignoring all the other refereeing controversies there, the final 'knock on' by Armitage looks as if a Clermont player actually kicked the ball out of his hands (which is illegal under the laws), so Toulon should have had a penalty there.

London Irish comeback upsets Racing Metro in Colombes

Looked like Bobo just couldn't be bothered to make the tackle on Thompstone's first try. He pulls up right in front of him, when he could have at least tried to make the hit and hold him up or dislodge the ball

Alesana Tuilagi and Tom Wood red carded following touchline brawl

Ashton's been cited for committing an act contrary to good sportsmanship or whatever that rule is they invoke whenever there isn't a specific offense to charge a player with. Tuilagi and Wood both cited for punching, but not Murphy...

Alesana Tuilagi and Tom Wood red carded following touchline brawl

1) Ashton should have been penalised for the hair pull.
2) Tuilagi did nothing against the laws.
3) Too many players sprinted over to single out Wood as retaliating
4) Murphy was clearly throwing lots of very obvious punches at people's backs

Conclusion: penalise Ashton, then reverse the penalty for Murphy's retaliation, red (or possibly yellow) Murphy, and maybe yellow Wood (although I can't see him actually throwing any shots). Then again I have the benefit of the replays...

Peter Stringer commits daylight robbery on James O'Connor

Looks like Stringer must have left the try line way before O'Connor started moving his arms and feet... he isn't that quick, and was almost in camera shot when O'Connor first moved. I think the referee had adjuged the kick to take too long, rather than saying he had started his run-up

Peter Stringer commits daylight robbery on James O'Connor

He's played there for Western Force quite a bit I think. Went pretty well, and it'll have to what with Cooper being out for so long now

Ryan Lamb calls for TMO after high flying penalty

It can't be that difficult or expensive to use similar 'Hawkeye' technology to tennis to keep track of the ball. Would also make it a lot easier for the TMO to judge whether or not the ball had crossed the tryline/touch and could even be used to determine grounding. This is a professional sport now, and we need to take advantage of professional technology
