He took a high kick, then put his foot out straight into Thomas face.

Kick to the head, hard to argue with it really. Not intentional but clumsy, but going to get a red every day of the week in the current climate.

Spreys not helping themselves by picking up two more yellows in the first half as well.

Williams kicked it out of a ruck when they were up against it and Aled Davies did a deliberate knock on when racing were running in a try, that one cost a penalty try as well.

Its been 15 v 13 for the bulk of the half

I just seen a replay. Looks like an odd one. It’s been a day of red cards for sure.

To be honest I think fez is a decent pundit. More than happy to slate Ulster when they don't perform and equally praises good play from the opposition

Commentating in most sports these days is jobs for the lads and nothing more than timer filler.

That's not an issue of proximity though, it's an issue of professionalism. Obviously a pundit won't throw their ex teammates under the bus, or their former team, but there should be no reason why they can't do their job well. Shouldn't need to create a 'rule' to prevent Heaslip's dreadful punditry - just don't hire him. No wonder there's no podcast...

You've possibly listened to Holley once then. He's been a pundit on Welsh TV for years and is generally pretty decent, a fair amount of technical detail, a bit David Brent at times and loves to reminds everyone he dominated Leinster while Ospreys coach, but I've literally never heard him do anything like what you're describing. It's chalk and cheese between Heaslip, who sounds like a fill in from a fan TV channel, and Holley.

Different competition, but Odogwu of Wasps got an 8 week ban reduced to 6 for something very similar.

I’ve had the misfortune to listen to him a number of times.  He is that bad. But sure never mind, one is as bad as the other.

I think the only shock is how early in the game it is. Had it been on 60mins I don’t think anyone would be questioning it. But the ref must ignore the clock and judge the incident on its own. Tough on the Ospreys but probably the right call.

I don't think any reasonable observer would argue with the red card decision against Dan Evans, I certainly wouldn't and have said so on the Ospreys forum, there are a few on there that do argue on there about the severity, it's funny in a way that Warburton and Liam Williams both said it was harsh. I think it was Liam that said he was trying to get his balance, well I know if you want to get your balance when 1 foot is on the ground you don't lift your other into the air as Dan did you put it to the ground.

There was no complaints about it from Hogg or Lydgate post match. They ssw it for what it was, an accident but a dangerous one.

His best bet is to say sorry a lot and bring some good quality biscuits to the hearing!

I seen it once, and in that one viewing I didn't think it was red. Every time our guys complained about something the French ref's standard response was "I have no TMO."

It was Mitrea, the Italian, I think.

He is neither the most empathetic nor technically most competent of refs.

One of them was a penalty try, not sure what for but not a red card offence it would seem...

No dangerous play but Ben Curry killed it on the Sale line coming in from offside, barn door yellow and penalty try

Exeter are walking this at the moment

22-8 and three tries in the bag

Marlon Yarde spoons one over the line when it would have been easier to score!

Exeter beat sale 22-20 by the skin of their teeth

Exeter still unbeaten and Sale will be out next weekend if they can't win down at Sandy Park, which will be a pretty tall order.

Good result for Glasgow

Exeter are probably one of the few teams with the potential to do Leinster over. Racing, Clermont and Toulouse seem very good this season too.

I've been quietly impressed by Leinster up until yesterday.  They look crisp and seem to have a machine-like desire for a specific pace....they might get stalled for a while but when the chess pieces are in place, instantly back to killer mode..... ; but up till now I was maybe even a little cautious that the machine just seemed a little too smooth and worried what would happen if they met a side with a real gameplan to challenge them.  Would the cogs crumble?
That game yesterday was probably the first where I could say yep, the image has substance enough to handle the big games to come.  Not suggesting the title is theirs... but given Northampton's position in the English league and even more so that frenetic slick game they play, Leinster looked calm, controlled and never complacent.  Just the right ingredients.

Saints have come to Dublin on the return leg of a double header before and pull out a victory a week after a home defeat. The same could be possible this time around. They should feel embarrassed by the performance in the second half. That should get a reaction in training this week. I can see the weekend being a different type of game completely.

If it was a deliberate or dangerous kick, it's the strangest one I have ever seen. Things getting worse for Ospreys as the injuries up front continue to stack up. Hopefully there's some careful planning over the coming months and a new coach announcement (a good one), to set them up for next season.

It might be reflexive in that he sees someone running at him to smash him (legally) and he sticks out his leg to ward them off.

It is dangerous because if the chap isn't dissuaded from a legal challenge he ends up with a face-full of studs.

Snow in the south of France sees Pau vs Blues postponed until tomorrow. Not much more excitement going on, but hoping that London Irish do Toulon to halt their momentum.

Teams like Quins are going all 'French' when it comes to Europe - give it a go in the first three games and if that doesn't work out focus on the League.

Curious in the Connacht game. Connact were held up over the line and Poite awarded a scrum. The TMO said time was up in the half but Poite said the scrum would play. A minute later, after talking to his TMO, Poite changed his mind, and called half time.

Not sure if Poite didn't realize time was over before the ball was held up, or if he thought a scrum should play in such circumstances. If Connacht hadn't stopped for an injury, the scrum could have taken place.

Munster medic particularly brave to have a pop at Jamie George about his weight though he wasn't brave enough to hang about in the ensuing melee. Not the brightest move as it seems to have fired up Sarries.
