Rugby ROUND UP: Jerry's tightrope; RUGBY WORLD CUP.

NEW ZEALAND: All Blacks flanker Jerry Collins feels players in the World Cup are walking a disciplinary tightrope following the recent smattering of citings to some of the tournament's star names.

England's Phil Vickery, Springbok Schalk Burger and USA's Paul Emerick have been banned after being targeted by citing commissioners.

And it has made notorious All Blacks hard-man Collins aware of his responsibilities.

"It's always at the back of your mind," said the powerful back-row forward.

"It's a long way to come for the tournament to end early. Everyone wants to be here for the full quota.

"I suppose it's just luck of the draw who gets picked up or not picked up."
