Midweek Madness - Player throws second ball into ruck to halt promising attack

Sidestepper has got the actions that lead up to the incident correct.

It was clearly an obvious 'cheating' incident, if he had been trying to throw the ball away it would have been off to his left, or behind him... a la shortest distance.... However I think what lead up to the incident itself should be taken into consideration before any punishments are handed out, for instance the Bordeaux player did add the kicked away ball to the mix in the first place and that was sort of in the way already. I think if the whole way to make it 'fair' would be to actually go back to where the original penalty was and start again with the penalty there.

Not sure if you're trolling...

Bakkies head butted a guy... Granted it was Cowan and I don't know how long he was banned for... but head butting someone like Bakkies did deserves a ban.

If Ashton didn't come across as such a knob then I'd probably be a fan of him, but his 'Ash splash' thing came and went quicker than a British summer...

Very interesting about the cognitive tests...

Although: "Subsequent scans revealed his brain function had been reduced to just above that of someone with special needs and he was advised to retire."

Not entirely sure what they'd reveal in the majority of front row forwards and Chris Ashton...

""Things got so bad I couldn't even remember my pin number"

Happened to me during my dissertation, I went about 48 hours with no sleep... needed some cash and froze at the machine. Although it was sleep related for me, it was pretty frightening... especially as later that day after some sleep it just came to me. Can't imagine how terrifying it would be to know it was something to do with a head injury.

Jumping over players is not always a guaranteed option, how many times have you seen a player dive to ground the ball and sort of be up on their feet as they're sliding almost instantly, in which case jumping would send you straight into him.

Anyway, I'm not saying it would ever be the case here, as North was not in much of a position to get up after scoring... just putting it out there.

Another Leigh Halfpenny concussion prompts questions about tackling technique

Hence why I want to see other angles, it looked to me like he sort of stepped out the way, jumped out the way..
