Referee knocked out by disgraceful punch in rugby league game

This guy has issues that go beyond the game of rugby.

And good bodyslam by 2 after copping a few swings. Reminiscent of a young Brock Lesnar.

Andre Esterhuizen red carded and banned for 6 weeks for dump on head

At the risk of defending the indefensible... the tackle looked horrible, but he had the player around the chest area and at no point lifted his legs or hips to dump him. The whole "lifting beyond the horizontal" doesn't really seem appropriate here. I suspect he was nailed more for how the guy fell than for how he actually tackled.

Super Rugby 2017 - Round 8 Highlights

No worries, and thanks. It was a great game to watch live, even though we were outnumbered 10 to 1 by the Stormers fans.

Your subheading needs to read Stormers vs Lions (not Cheetahs).

Ed Quirk lashes out with elbow and knee after being held off the ball

If you transgress beyond a certain level, they throw the dicktionary at you?

Ed Quirk lashes out with elbow and knee after being held off the ball

That would have been a straight red if the ref or TMO had seen it, regardless of his "frustration". The holding back was for all of about two seconds. Does everyone who is ever held onto at a ruck have the right to lash out? Of course not. If he cops anything less than 4 weeks it will be an injustice. And yes, I love me some cous cous with my braai.

Quade Cooper likely to be suspended following red card vs Lions

Renaldo Bothma (Bulls) was just given 4 weeks for exactly the same offense. If anything, his swing to the jaw looked a little less intense. Considering that his track record is as good if not better than Cooper's (and assuming he showed remorse, which they all do), what exactly makes his a 4 week ban and Cooper's a 3 week ban? It all just seems so arbitrary and subjective.

Indeed.

Nicolas Sanchez banned for dangerous challenge after only being penalised

Are you being serious or are you mocking the rule? Clearly Volminck caught the ball without having to jump. And clearly Sanchez never had a chance of getting to it.
