Richard Hibbard's massive hit on Sale's Shalva Mamukashvili

Clear and Obvious knock on? No, not for me.

But in fairness to the referee the ball impact was on the far side of the referee, so perhaps the AR quickly called it in, there was a slight delay

Samu Manoa Huge Hit on Billy Twelvetrees in Premiership opening weekend

Its foul play under 10.4(e)

Look closely, The tacklers right hand/arm ends up around twelvetrees neck = dangerous.

The supporters of this style of tackling are indirect advocates of the increased concussions in this code.

Ben Tameifuna cited for big shove on referee Glen Jackson

5 WK ban is paltry and too low. Deliberate and unnecessary double handed shove that didn't represent a bona-fide 'referee obstruction trying to encourage him outta the way" action + no concern shown at the time , and post match apology is lip service.

Should have been 12-16 was, all grassroots referees will get an uncomfortable feeling seeing such leniency for a premeditated and unnecessary (watch his eyes & footwork) assault on a ref.

Perhaps the ban shortness means he's due for NZAB selection soon?!!

Samson Lee suspended for five weeks for headbutt against South Africa

There already is a code for you really really tough guys, cage fighting ! Problem is, your opponent gets a chance to look you in the eye, not enjoyed by the cheap shot cowards that masquerade as rugby players.

Owen Williams banned for six weeks for making contact with Luther Burrell's eyes

the offence is contact with the eye area .....

TBH I dont care what Medical or victim said ( he wouldve had his eyes closed gteed) that WAS definately "in the eye area" and SANZAR have shamefully conspired to send the wrong message the sport.

I smell the stench of politics , not integrity in that decision.

Salesi Ma'afu banned for one week for punch on Tom Youngs that went viral

Did anyone expect the ban to extend beyond 1pm on 31st May ? Really? Essentially this is a 'Red card sufficient' punishment decision, I've no qualm with that, a minor spat between two front rowers, zzzzzzz

Young's shows his class with admirable post match banter ....top bloke, great advice from dad .

Equality works both ways ladies. Those heels hurt when you're being smacked on the head up to ten times.

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

Nothing in pro rugby happens by chance
4 minutes in ....!!
if this isnt sanctioned heavily it will give a green light for players to run through/back into opposition jumpers without punishment.
And that will be d a n g e r o u s for all players in all levels of the game.
