No genius, I was referring to Du Plessis kicking Leitch in the head...

Sam Warburton and adidas deliver BIG surprise to Welsh rugby player

My word, size 21!!! That's crazy...

Hate to be around a ruck when he's near by, must be hard to control feet that big!

I'm bad enough with my size 12's(?)

The Shortball highlights wrap from Round 7 of Super Rugby

You'd be pretty pissed off having to come off for a concussion test after having the ball booted at you by a team mate.. luckily the bloke came back on, that would make you even more crazy to be told you're concussed..

Great and wise man.

Ulster's Nick Williams suspended for 8 weeks for striking Rhys Patchell

..so a player clearly and obviously kicks another player in the head/neck/face with studs and he gets 3 (4?) weeks.... Williams, makes a poor attempt at disguising his attack and he gets 16 weeks reduced by 8???

I'm really confused..

George North knocked out again as Nathan Hughes gets red card for knee

The thing is Dave, I weigh nearly 230lbs (converted it just for you (: ) and I can still step backs, spin out of tackles and remain somewhat elusive (I'm a second row/back row).. Granted an extra 50lbs is a lot more weight, but the guy is a professional athlete. I'm not suggesting he jumps, nor am I suggesting he did this on purpose. I just think his weight is not really a great excuse.

Kelly Haimona is Italy's current fly half, he weighs 235lbs... He has silky foot work, of course that is comparing forwards and backs, but every player has the ability to somewhat control themselves.

I honestly think Hughes was trying to brush past North, or perhaps dislodge the ball as he went past. I don't believe he was aiming to injure or KO North at all.

Another Leigh Halfpenny concussion prompts questions about tackling technique

Got to admit, I was wondering the same...

Dave, the guy is a professional athlete, he's not a 280lb couch potato...

I've known fat props weighing 250 who are more agile than ballerinas..
