Hooker Dylan Hartley cited for striking Ulster's Rory Best

Sadly, I have to agree. It's a shame since he's not an untalented player, but if he's too hot-headed for test match rugby then he'll gradually be replaced by Tom Youngs.

Chris Hala'ufia suspended for five weeks after straight red card

Not a red, maybe a yellow at best. I think the legs were in the air only after the man was on the ground. Still, I disagree with the captain arguing with the ref. It's not football, so take the decision and play on.

England upset the All Blacks with famous win at Twickenham

Here's a quote (courtesy of BBC Sport Rugby Union) from McCaw about whether the mid-week virus was the reason for their loss: "I don’t think so. Had we fallen off at end could have blamed it, I felt fine in that department."

Quade Cooper suspended for one week for dangerous hit on Berrick Barnes

I think the ban was justified. Doesn't matter whether the intention is there or not, dangerous is dangerous. Shouldn't go in around the neck like that.

Jason Robinson classic try against Italy in 2004

Robinson without question an exceptional winger and full back for England, probably one of the best when he was playing. Will we ever see and English back with the pace, skill and dancing feet of that guy? Not likely.

Referee Nigel Owens - 'This is not Soccer'

Cracking refereeing. He's right, it's not soccer, rugby refs (generally) get the respect they deserve on the rugby field and I truly hope it stays that way.
