George North picks up and carries tackler Israel Folau

Despite massive respect for Folau [In my view the most exciting player on the park] I think that once North has 'ensured he landed safely [well done GN] that IF's action of dropping him on his head is very dangerous & is precisely why lifting tackles were outlawed...

This should be referred to the citing commissioner to decide whether it was foul play.

IMHO dangerous & subject to action.

If this face stamp isn't a minimum Top End ban, then the Disciplinary Panel should all resign. Face stamping = no place in rugby - EVER

JH best defense would be to admit trying to stamp on AWJ but claim that he lost his balance as he crossed his legs & missed the shoulder he was aiming for !!!

Even that should get laughed out of the hearing !

IRB are you listening .......? Face stamping should have it's own 'sanctions' category 10.4[b] doesn't fit this action.

set up 10.4.b [1] Stamping above the shoulder
Low 52+ weeks
Mid 104+ weeks
Top 156+
with Life Bans for if the injured player is severely injured.

S&S, you've been drowning your sorrows too much- clearly still misty eyed.

Yes GN pushed IF, but there are 100's of pushing incidents in a match ...... JH's assault was 3 mins into the match off the ball deliberate premeditated & cowardly. You've embarrassed yourself by even linking the incidents - shame on you.

Sadly, Super 14 play under the same laws...... it's the Interpretations that are different.
Surely the IRB can insist on standard interpretations, they appoint referees ..... start demoting all those who won't apply standard interpretations, all this SH NH divide is poor for the game.

If the SH want to play RL then bugger off & do it. As a Union xplayer & fan I want to see contests all over the pitch..lineout, ruck, maul, tackle, jackal, scrum feeds, hooking, kick off catches etc

It's supposed to be an international sport.

Phillips has always kept guards occupied with his taxiing, but it slows down ball to receivers , when he can't get through it looks terrible, but when it works he's a handful. everyone can see Youngs service is quicker, but if he doesnt interest the defenders they just smother the 1st/2nd receivers ..... take your pick. Croft did lots of tackling, still worth his place IMO

can't wait for next sat .......

USA Eagle Samu Manoa's huge hit on Peter O'Mahony

Penalty to USA. Both irish 3 & 5 are forced to come in from the side because of the distance O'M travels ..... poor ref decision on that occasion, Samu's efforts unrewarded
