Young 110kg centre demolishes flyhalf with brutal hit in the NRC

No it was totally deliberate, if you pause it just right, you can even see he has a hard piece of shoulder protection that he uses as a weapon...

Wallabies upset All Blacks in Bledisloe Cup thriller in Brisbane

Oh I don't deny it was deliberate, but was it illegal? I mean, for instance if you don't change your line then you aren't infringing, or if you stand still you aren't infringing... I just mean I don't blame the AB player for bracing up.. I guess the way I think I'm seeing it is:

Did I change my line? No
Is he about to crash into me if I continue this line? Yes
Ok, let's brace up for impact and ruin this guys day...

So totally deliberate and definitely cynical, but I'm not so sure it's illegal...

Agree that the ABs know the grey areas far better than any other team!!

Wallabies upset All Blacks in Bledisloe Cup thriller in Brisbane

I agree with most of your comment, but do you really think that last penalty was much/worth a penalty? I keep re-watching it and it doesn't look like the AB player changed his line, just more braced himself for the inevitable impact from a wallaby focussed on the ball carrier... I mean cynical style, but didn't seem like much illegality to me, just seems like he leans into his own shoulder and the wallaby bounces off...

Suspension down under shows that recklessness will always be punished

See...this is one of the tackles I can see as a potential red/yellow... Farrells' was what we 'old' (in my 20's here) men call a dump tackle...

Credit to the flanker, realised he ballsed up, said sorry all round and took his punishment without complaint!

As for the title, not entirely sure I am convinced considering that incident where that bloke that recently got KO'd because he apparently 'dropped his chin at the last moment' didn't have an oppo player punished...I'm not convinced... Either way....card seems to fit the crime in this scenario - to some respect...not sure I like the referees using "what it's" but either way, done is done...

I also found a video I thought to share of a jockey suffering a serious injury in a horse race...then I realised it was a totally different sport...

Well that's why I prefer the glitter throwing version of the game...well, as long as everyone is wearing respirators and goggles and they adhere to a strict underarm throwing rule and not within 1m of each other..

yes, Faké Strawman, broke his back, club disowned him, family left him on the side of the road and he was eaten by rabid armadillos....it was a tragedy and as a result lessons in tackling must be learned!
