Argentina beat the Wallabies to claim first ever win in Rugby Championship

Or did he do it again in this game? Is it a new catchphrase?

Naked streaker starts mass brawl after tackling Varsity match winger

Looks like someone misunderstood this passage of the Streaker's Handbook:
"Get on the pitch and show everyone your tackle".

Lovely bit of exaggeration and hyperbole from the commentator - is it Stuart Barnes's son on work experience?

So, I'm usually an ardent defender of streakers' rights, but clearly this twat has taken things too far. However, I have to say, the pipe was a nice touch.

Argentina beat the Wallabies to claim first ever win in Rugby Championship

That was last weekend against South Africa, by the way, just to clarify.
Would be a good one for the Nigel Owens archive.

Declan Fitzpatrick suspended after being Red carded for punch

My "agree with you" comment was agreeing with Browner, by the way.

Declan Fitzpatrick suspended after being Red carded for punch

Agree with you there mate.
My initial reaction on seeing this in real time was that it was an illegal block.
Slow motion replays confirm that view for me.

Glad you specified face cheeks. From the phrasing of your comment I infer that you have indeed seen arse cheeks bleed of their own accord?

All Blacks win Rugby Championship with bonus point win over Argentina

I put this into Google Translate and it came up with:
Argentina needed to show better line speed in defence, particularly for the first try.

Is that roughly accurate?

Richard Hibbard's massive hit on Sale's Shalva Mamukashvili

"Knock-on in the tackle" is a ludicrous decision to award at any time. So you've dislodged the ball in the process of tackling the bloke - personally I think that should be encouraged. The onus surely is on the ball carrier to keep control of the ball. Aside from that, the contact on the ball from Hibbard was minimal anyway.

Aaron Cruden banned for two matches after missing team flight

Act 2 - banging away like a dunny door
Act 3 - massive hangover and a nagging thought in the back of the mind that you were meant to be somewhere an hour ago...

Aaron Cruden banned for two matches after missing team flight

I don't know, seems plausible enough to me. Got hammered, did not go back to the team hotel, but to some girl's house. Hanging out the back of her for a large portion of the night, then falls into a very sound sleep. Meanwhile his bloody phone's run out of battery after he spent so much time showing the ladies youtube videos of his top rugby moments. Back at the hotel Hansen et al are all trying to call him, but nobody can get through. The other lads are being interrogated as to where he was last seen, but none of them know where the girl's house is - why would they? They've no other way of tracking him down so eventually they just go sod it, we'll have to go without him.

Mind you, I'm pleased to see he fessed up and got it over and done with. Remember Bastareaud on tour in NZ when he got slaughtered and fell into the table in his hotel room, was so embarrassed he made up some BS about getting attacked by some locals. I mean who in their right mind would attack him?
