Springboks snatch defeat from the jaws of victory as Wallabies win in Perth

I have to disagree with you last part. More needs to be said about the Vermuelen penalty rather than just letting it slide under the carpet. It needs to be pointed out clearly to all referees, especially Clancy, that was not and never should have been a penalty.

Springboks snatch defeat from the jaws of victory as Wallabies win in Perth

Surely after a "performance" as poor as what Clancy displayed there has to be some reaction from the IRB. I'm not saying he should never ref again, but he should at least be dropped for the remainder of the championship. It should also be publicly stated by the IRB that they are dropping him because of his abysmal refereeing.

Ma'a Nonu's bumps off Colin Slade with massive charge

I broke my jaw a few years ago and it took me a long time to recover mentally and play at 100% again. Something that is not really considered in the game is mental recovery from injuries, these days it seems that so much reliance is placed on the team doctor saying yep his guy has physically recovered and players are expected to be thrown right back in. As 10stone said if you are not playing at 100% then you have lost the collision, this isn't just about being macho and getting on with it. it takes a while to get over that little voice in your head that worries about getting injured again.

DTH van der Merwe beats defender, pulls hamstring, sets up try

Or you could refer to it as Gaidhlig (the Gaelic spelling for it) this is my dads first language as he grew up on the isle of lewis and i may be one of the few people to actually appreciate coverage in this language!

To clarify for people it is a different language from irish gaelic, sort of like spanish and portuguese but closer.

Would be great to see even more Pro 12 clips

Midweek Madness - Adam Ashley-Cooper's try saving superman double tackle

Definite high tackles, but brilliant nonetheless. Should have been penalised though.

WIN an adidas ball signed by All Black legend Dan Carter

Carter is the definition of a professional and the world record holder for points, how could you have anyone else!?

Also thanks RD for posting this, my pre-season kicks off next Tuesday and I've been looking for a new pair of boots. Think I've just found them!

France bounce back with convincing win over Argentina in Tucuman

This guy is now only 2nd to aussie commentators as my favourite people to listen to for rugby!

As far as the game goes Argentina looked pretty awful and if that is how they faired against the french then all I can see is a whitewash for them in the 4N.

Jim Hamilton and David Paice shown red cards after being sin-binned

Good to see some unbiased comments on here. After reading the description and watching the video I was prepared to say how completely biased the London Irish coach was, but it appears to have already been commented on. Would have been nice to see RD add some balance to the write up though and say something, if not in Hamilton's defence, then at least to mention that it was Paice that started the 2nd fight and not anything like the Irish coach said.

On another note Treviranus has got to be cited for at least one of the punches he through at the end of the fight! I have no problem with a bit of a dust up when both players are going at it, but he was just swinging punches at people trying to calm the fight down.
