#ThrowbackThursday: Remember when Courtney Lawes decapitated Plisson?

On what basis would that be a red card now? He didn't lift him. He didn't start high. He didn't finish high. He didn't hit him late (C'mon Oliver, bite... biiiite). Plisson flipped but only because he was off balance. Nothing in the laws to say you can't hit them THAT hard.

Perfectly legal tackle.

#ThrowbackThursday: Remember when Courtney Lawes decapitated Plisson?

I've never rated Lawes much aside from his ability to hit smaller men in a way which arouses me painfully.

This season has been a better one for him, but I want to see how he does against a big French pack.

Thierry Dusautoir blindesides Colin Slade with punishing tackle

You won't fish for long if you cast your rod.

I laughed out loud when I saw DrG's original comment, and once again when Oliver commented.

As said before, Oliver, Lawes just hit Plisson so hard he flipped. He didn't lift him. Or maybe Plisson dived.... *hides behind Stroudos*

It's not the timing of the hit, it's the way his neck snaps back... ;-)

Porn.

Mathieu Bastareaud smashes Alex Lozowski with MONSTER hit

If he now goes from being a total monster in the cup and becomes a waste of space in the 6N, it'll be the most Bastareaud thing ever.

Most tackles are physics.

What Haskell and Farrell have? That's chemistry.

Francois Steyn red carded for attempting to take Johnny Sexton's head off

If your tackling action (ie you are virtually upright, your should hits their chest, but your head hits their head) is part of the considered circumstances, I believe.

World Rugby are trying to get people to tackle the way that we were taught in minis. Think of it that way. Hitting the ball with your chest to try and wrap it up is probably going to cause a head clash. In that event, you've endangered the player recklessly and may face sanction.
