The peculiar Vannes vs Narbonne 'no maul' stand off

Good old Nigel Owens in that Italy-England match. Clear and accurate as usual.

Sensational tries and funniest bits from the 2016 Dubai 7s

Ahhh, that'll teach me to comment before watching everything; Maloney's got it covered, of course. It was such a funny bit though, had to say something as soon as I noticed.

Extended highlights of England's fourth victory over the Wallabies this year

I would add that Australia really missed Genia. Phipps shows a few flashes but really was abused in this game; top notch by Youngs.

I wrote big reply earlier about the yellow, but deleted it as Dan has said it better here. Slow motion makes this look way worse. At full speed, it's simply a tackle that HP pulled out of, which is why his arms weren't in it (a person naturally braces for impact with the shoulder). I would venture that if HP had gone full out and tackled Brown as if he had the ball, nothing comes off this at all.

USA Women's winger Naya Tapper banned for alleged kick

I think the men's game should definitely adopt the "hug your captain when you've been sent off" as a new tradition. How great would it have been to see, for example Chris Ashton having to hug Dylan Hartley after being used as a punching bag by Manuel Tuilagi? Or Bismarck Du Plessis having to hug it out with Jan DeVilliers for the crime of tackling Dan Carter?

USA Women's winger Naya Tapper banned for alleged kick

Really strange, isn't it? Clearly accidental with the boot to the face but I'm trying to make sense of the card and ban. It must have been considered reckless to flail her legs like that in the tackle (admittedly, it looked strange and not a normal reaction).

I'm also thinking that the USA player flailed because she didn't like that she was tackled even though she didn't have the ball. The tackler's position was such that she probably didn't see that the winger had dropped the pass. Really hard to see any significant contact from those camera angles.
