Butch James banned for four weeks for dangerous charge against the Brumbies

Four weeks is a bit harsh...A yellow card seemed fine by me...I mean it's just a shoulder charge right?

Leinster hold out against Clermont to reach another Heineken Cup final

Im sorry but Clermont were booing and whistling throughout the match from the first penalty for Leinster to their last one...They also booed every decision that didn't go there way incl knock ons...

Barnes had a bad day, but then again Barnes always has bad days..I rarely see him have good matches...

French fans in general tend to moan a lot during matches, no matter howclear cut a penalty decision was...After thee game I'm sure they're fine, but during it you can't deny it's a different kettle of fish...

personally Clermont deserved the win yesterday.>>With 5 minutes to go Leinster were out on their feet and Fofana really should have gotten the ball down...As usual BOD was amazing in defense and kept the dangerous midfield of Clermont quiet for much of the match..>IF it weren't for him in there Clermont would have likely put up a lot more points...

Also should be added that Laidlaw is turning into a great player too!

Darren Cave & Johan Muller hits plus highlights of first Heineken Cup semi final

Last year Leinster were supposed to stroll through NH too and look how that turned out...

I would be very surprised if this was anything but a very close final...Ulster's defense is immense, as is Leinsters, and the missing guys coming back into the fold for Ulster it will only get better...

On another note, Stephen Ferris is an absolute warrior..The guy has been playing on a banjaxed knee since before the Lions tour basically and he still performs up there with the very best backrows in the world..He is the best defensive backrow in the world imo...

John Afoa suspended for four weeks for dangerous tackle

This is getting beyond a joke at this stage..The tackle was fine, nobody got injured and nobody would be complaining he hadn't of been cited....

I cant remember anybody who has been seriously injured by a one of these so called "spear tackles"...This all comes from what Tana and kevin did to BOD which is not even comparable to any of these tackles since, BOD didn't even have the ball and he was actually driven head first vertically into the ground..

These tackles are where guys might land slightly on their shoulders, and the tackler is getting banned for weeks...The current rules or interpretation of the rules are a joke and are taking a lot away from the game itself, where nearly every hard tackle is being questioned, be it a dump tackle or a so called shoulder hit...

The only tackles I believe that should be getting bans are where a guy is actually driven head first into the ground or is picked up and dropped down head first..All of these tackles, Afoa here,Warbutons agains france and many more, are perfectly fine, there were no serious or long terms injuries and there was no serious intent to maim the player..Of course they want to hurt the player they're tackling, that's a tacklers job remember but none of these guys went out to try and break a guys shoulder or neck etc...

Andy Goode red carded for high hit against former team Leicester Tigers

Was never a red cad imo...That is a yellow card if ever I saw one...Although he still would have gotten the line, in another situation the difference between a red and yellow could be a lot more important..

Calum Clark cited for bending Rob Hawkins' arm backwards

He started off simply trying to get his arm off the ball, but he kept on pulling at it after the whistle had gone and it was done with deliberate intent to cause injury...

Big ban is needed, I reckon 9 months, if not 12....

Also Rugbydump, Dylan hartely has been cited for apparently biting Stephen Ferris last week..Would like to see if you could get footage of that up if possible..
