Sonny Bill Williams back in the ITM Cup for Counties Manukau

To be fair, breaking someones nose is a tad more than 'rib tickling'... I don't think many people would argue against that...

Totally agree with Storms... Morne Steyn should be banned because he kicks too well...

Declan Fitzpatrick suspended after being Red carded for punch

...just ignore Dan, he's a back, they're too busy kicking the ball and running around to be bothered about rearranging someones conk...or having your own rearranged XD

Stars feature in IRB's Recognise and Remove Concussion Education Video

I see a big problem there though... there isn't much going on inside the coconut of players wearing 1-3 (dare I include my own brethren 4-5 too..) so that helmet would be throwing up all sorts of errors...

Cut could have come from a 'headbutt' or at least head on face contact...perhaps?

Not sure rugby would be without the big hits... I mean it's fantastic to see the little guys, or even big guys run elusively, but every now and again when someone gets smashed it's just, 'oh so wonderful'... and realistically, you cannot suggest that not cheering/saluting the big hits will make much of a difference to the game.

I found Rugbydump about 8 years ago? (maybe more or less, I can't recall) through the TSRB videos and as with above, although I appreciate watching the videos of great running, great handling and all round great play, I still am itching for the next of the series (Rugbydump?).

Ranger has put it well.. it is extremely difficult to come off the pitch. As a second row/back row, in some games at the end, my legs could be cramping every scrum, my speed is down to 60%, my brain is mentally fatigued, I know that a sub could come on and be 'better', but do I want to come off? Hell no...

Then there is the times when you get a knock early on, you feel that if you come off your team will be weaker and you don't want to let them down... Rugby is far beyond the physical game, mental games are where professional teams can edge 'physically better' teams.

How the rules will change to avoid big hits is something I am both intrigued and terrified to see.. I don't quite know how they can police what are now legal but huge hits, especially if they are below neck height and actually involve completely wrapping the arms so there is no question of 'attempting' or not...
