Ross Moriarty's thumping late hit on Owen Farrell in Cardiff

Stroudos isn't correct with forwards not dominating forwards, however the point he is trying to make is very much true. The Messam incident he suggested being an exception is what I'd say rather a case and point.... two massive blokes renowned for their impacts not really dominating either one.... Messam got launched, but young Thor also got knocked from his stride... so either way no one got particularly dominated.

But of course as you said, it can happen, it just so happens that a 20 stone lump hitting a 10 stone bouncy ball sends things careening off into outer space which is much more spectacular than two immovable objects clattering into each other...

Enhanced Super Rugby Judiciary Process Launched by SANZAAR

So, do they govern rugby in the SH then or is that still covered by World Rugby....

It's quite confusing to have multiple bodies governing one sport...

Ross Moriarty's thumping late hit on Owen Farrell in Cardiff

I saw on the news that Howley reckons due to the time he's spent with Gatland that he likes to think he has a little bit of kiwi in him.....

...Considering the amount of times Wales have been done over, I'd be inclined to suggest Howley has a little bit of English, Irish, French, South African and Australian in him.... Seems like he's been pounded by every nation at one point or another...

I agree with your sentiments regarding bastareud, but my issue with you taking offence at Lawes tackle is that it wasn't late, the ball had just gone but it was a legitimately committed tackle, and the landing on the head/neck had nothing at all to do with Lawes technique, he didn't lift the guy, turn the guy or anything like that, he hit him so hard that he spun on a pivotal point.

Lawes has tackled forwards before, but Frankly he's not likely to impose himself on another forward as it's not that easy, look at the recent tongan Thor vs Messam..... Nothing actually happened when they collided...So Lawes may hit big forwards with the same momentum, but the outcome is not the same...

#TBT: Peter Stringer's brilliant low tackle on Jonah Lomu in 2002

Well I've seen stringer run with the ball, make increbidle tackles and achieve his role of being the pivotal point between forwards and backs with diamond sharp passing, so to do that, to be a sneaky ferret and to tackle lomu, all at the size of a pint glass is pretty bloody impressive, especially at his ripe old age now.

But sure, I bet your rugby career is far greater than this amateur....

....You are aware there are two different 'already committed' tackles right?

There is a genuine 'already committed' which applies to players 1-15, then there is an 'already committed' which applies to us horrible players up front where we giggle like school girls about breaking someone....
