If it's not stopped then we'll end up with something similar to NFL where you have blockers.

It's called a dummy line...dumpy line makes no sense on any level...if if he did get dumped :D

I wouldn't say red, if he had the ball it was borderline. Yellow card for off the ball tackle.

Richard Kahui's huge hit on Ben Tapuai in Hamilton

All Black for sure, would think that Freun should be in with a shout too. ABs are never short on talent are they?
Was this tackle a little high? Am I going to get slated for even suggesting that??? :D
Oh well....

Prop Ben Franks' big hit and unbelievable try-saving tackle on wing Frank Halai

Well if you are going to be 'old fashioned' go the whole hog, Quade Cooper, Dean Mumm and Digby Ioane were all born in New Zealand, while Tuiquiri is Fijian and David Pocock was born in Zimbabwe....was there a point there???

Bad, you check for a response and see if the guy can feel or move everything.
The recovery position is strictly for people who have fainted and it's main purpose is to avoid vomiting back down their throat or swallowing their tongue. However after an impact to the head and neck area it's the last thing you should do. A cracked verterbra can quickly become something worse.
You check for breathing, you keep him absolutley still and you check response signs by touching the fingers and gently rocking the legs.
Thom Evans (Sco) went very close to ending up paralysed, he was on the bottom of the ruck after his whack. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4n4z52VZuIY

Darren Cave picks up concussion after two big tackles vs Treviso

I agree, would love to see all the new talent get a run but I also think the All Blacks system of 7 leaders should be adopted. They have 7 named leaders who have to show example on and off the pitch to the new guys coming in.
I have to say for Ireland, the Fiji game was the one I enjoyed the most over the past 12 months, fair enough, it's not tier one competition but when I think back to a very stale 20-15 win over Samoa a couple of years back with an average age of 30 on the pitch for Ireland I get shivers.
Pity for Kidney, I thought he would have done better with what he had but he seems to just waste talent by being over conservative. We have a great new generation who came 5th in the U20 Jnr RWC, let them at it I say.
And lastly, I hate to see Earls (a Kidney pet) on in front of the very much on form Trimble, especially after wasting a perfect try scoring opportunity against the Scots and having failed to impress in general. He hasn't lived up to his early potential, Trimble on the other hand is solid and reliable, I can't get my head round his omission from the starting line-up against France.
Oh well....here's to dreaming!
