Calum Clark banned for 3 weeks for elbow on Donncha O'Callaghan

Cheap shots don't get much more cowardly than that. Oh, sorry I forgot, this scumbag has done a much more cowardly cheap shot, breaking the arm of a bloke who was in a vulnerable position and unable to defend himself. He should have been banned from all forms of rugby for life. 32 weeks despite an entry point of 5 years was a total miscarriage of justice.

RD - got to take issue with the write-up above. These two statements do not belong in the same paragraph:
"he deliberately hyper-extended the arm of Rob Hawkins, which caused a fractured elbow"
"there was no evidence that he intended to cause a serious injury".
I would suggest that you should make it clear you're quoting the disciplinary officer, I think quotation marks and a qualifier such as "unbelievably, the disciplinary officer said that..."

As for this incident, I just can't fathom what goes through such a despicable twat's brain that makes them think deliberately blindsiding a bloke who's on the ground with a forearm smash could possibly be a good idea.

I note the panel ruled it was not premeditated - well only Arseface Clark would know for certain, but that looked precisely what it was to me: a pre-meditated, deliberate cheap shot.

As for this bullshit about showing remorse: A) I don't give a shit, and B) surely the remorse was driven by a quite justified fear that they would throw the book at him this time. Three weeks?? Pathetic. Another total travesty of justice.

I just hope that Eddie Jones, on watching this, makes an irreversible decision to never select Clark for England. He's been quite forgiving of players with past misdemeanours so far, (cf Hartley) and it's worked out pretty well so far, but this swine is in a different league. He should never have been capped for England at all and I really don't want to see this prick ever pull on an England shirt again.

I would have happily watched O'Callaghan unload punch after punch after punch on this cowardly piece of shit. He could still be punching him now and I'd urge him to keep going.

Majority of UK media are twats.

My theory is they're people who failed at sport themselves and can't bear to see others being successful. This is of course multiplied for NZ given just how successful they are. These pathetic jealous bastards just can't bear to let other people do well.

Problem in this case is people seem to be getting the impression that Ireland have been sore losers, based on things written in British newspapers.

Oldflyhalf - at 73:16, all I see is a shit kick from an Ireland player that goes out on the full and the lineout being awarded. What were we supposed to see??

Please don't conflate Eddie Jones / England team with the pathetic scum who write for the media in the UK.

Quite right Moo. Show us the incident which led to the penalty being awarded. The actual kicking of the ball is of minimal interest. Don't know why (many) highlights producers can't seem to understand this.

It's not victimisation syndrome if it actually plays out that way. Watch this space...

It does indeed and every time it's mentioned it sounds more ridiculous.
However, the unofficial but universally-applied rule that an early apology on Twitter produces an immediate halving of the sanction is one that I'm sure we can all get behind.
