Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

What about that "tackle" by Flood though!?!? Has there not been a citing for that? About as pointless and unnecessary as it was reckless and dangerous. I mean Watson's on the ground a couple of inches from touch and 10m from his own try line.

I simply cannot fathom what was going through Flood's mind when he though there was any need to even make the "tackle". Also, what the **** was he protesting to the touch judge about??

I haven't seen a neck twisted so sharply and violently since that Chong Li in the film Bloodsport (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0ZLkDFFPWQ for the young/uninitiated).

Never mind banning people for several months if the bloke they tackle "goes beyond the horizontal" while being safely lowered to the ground. Surely this sort of "tackle" is far more likely to damage necks and brains.

Clancy obviously saw it (and on the big screen in slow motion too), because he penalised it. But why not even a yellow card??

Actually, it appears so:

Je m’excuse sincèrement pour ce geste de simulation inapproprié qui ne reflète pas du tout mon état d’esprit et les valeurs du rugby#sorry

(Translation: I sincerely apologise for this gesture of inappropriate simulation, which does not at all reflect my state of mind and the values of rugby #sorry)

Haven't seen anything from Stade Toulousain.

Fair play to the bloke for the apology, but typing a tweet is easy enough to do. I would still prefer to have seen a proper example made, at his expense.

To quote the great Martin Castrogiovanni, "I do not like c**ts". And here is the living embodiment of the worst kind of cheating c**t. Huget is now the very epitome of all that is despicable, contemptible and wretched in the world.

#JeNeSuisPasHuget

To have the audacity to pull this kind of stunt just a few feet away from Watson who had genuinely almost had his head removed is just unbelievable.

Like many others I'd like to have seen a massive ban for this, rather than the gentle rap on the knuckles that was administered. An example has to be set before rugby gets on a slippery slope. I'm old enough to remember when you could tackle someone fairly and squarely in football and not have to worry about the prick deliberately falling over. Watching that game now it's like a different sport. Hard to imagine rugby going that far down the road, but if it's not nipped in the bud quickly, it could happen.

DrG, this act by Huget is a hundred times worse.

Mamuka Gorgodze finishes off outstanding Toulon team try in Ulster thrashing

@Eddie-g, Absolutely right mate. SL and his selectors are just cutting off their collective nose to spite their face.

Jonathan Joseph brilliance sets up Francois Louw try for great Bath try

Might not be as fast as The Bus, but I reckon he's not far off...

I like Burrell too, so any combination of him/Eastmond/Joseph would be good.

Check out Castro in there, throwing dummies, linking up, putting players in space with soft hands. Love it.

I don't really see what else Steffon Armitage can do to merit "special circumstances"...
