The main controversy on the opening weekend of domestic rugby in the UK and Ireland has come from Welford Road, where Leicester Tigers prop Dan Cole has been accused in some quarters of biting the hand of Worcester fly-half Ignacio Mieres. Slow motion replies appeared to suggest the Argentine had shoved his fingers in Cole’s mouth (so what did he expect?), but nonetheless there was blood on his fingers so an investigation is absolutely necessary. According to reports a decision will be made on whether or not he will be cited by 4pm this afternoon.
