Ruby's a thugs game. The culture is you cheat by punching them in the scrums and rucks, and stamping on them and being dirty while the ref isn't looking. That's why the props shave themselves; because they other side pulls your hair.

Afterwards you both share a meal.

I know because my school was (or is? I'm sitting final exams so not sure where i stand) renowned for being a good rugby school; we were a feeder club to the Saints and we'd play all the best private Schools. I know how **** goes down, and violence is just an accepted part of it.
Deliberately twisting and breaking an opponent's arm?
Eye gouging?
Calling the referee's integrity into question (although it was Wayne Barnes, so he had a point, still, best not to do it to his face)?

Eye couging is casual, give me a link to the breaking of the arm.

It IS normally our players who get started on though.

Eye-gouging is one of the most heinous acts of foul play in the game.

This is the arm-breaking incident in question:

There's nothing wrong with Owen Farrell, he seems perfectly pleasant to me.
Well you would say that!

fair play on that one but this is Saints vs Tigers, violence is expected in that fixture and normally they start it.

Ah, the Ashton-Tuilagi feud. Was this before or after Ashton dragged his brother off the field by his ponytail?

I can't remember but the response to hair pulling was well over the top in that case.

Also his brother was on all fours, so it's not like he was dragged as a dead weight on the floor.

I think Alesana Tuilagi was running when Ashton dragged him into touch by his hair.

It appears that 2016 may deliver a solution to the N-S divide.... London may elect George Galloway causing anybody of sense to flee.

Just watched it, Ashton drags him down while holding his hair but not entirely by his hair (ie it was the contact of the tackle that made him go down) then another liectster player slams into Ashton and Ashton is forced to pull Tuillangi with him out of touch.

Then A Tuilagi and I think Tom Wood (who I generally see as a clean player) exchange punches IIRC and both are sent off.

But seriously, it'll cost him a £10,000 deposit that he wont get back, there's literally no point in it.
