You'd have to give similar treatment when backs get involved in the ugly stuff and score a "forward's" try. O'Driscoll barreled over a few times from the base of a ruck.

Players would just get very adept at counting to 29 while writhing about on the ground!

It might be marginal, but the flanker grabbing Parisse's shirt alters his trajectory and ends up making things worse.
But I agree totally with im above. What the f*@$ was he thinking picking Dulin up like that?

Not condoning JP's behaviour on that occasion, but I don't think you can compare that to this.

When I read that he had received a red card for shoving a player's face in the ground, I thought it sounded harsh. But I was imagining the more common incident of face already on the ground, palm on the side of the head and lean down a bit just enough to rub it in (which I don't like to see but I don't get so offended by it as you never really know what has gone on in the game between the players in question).
But this is completely different, in the level of agression and the potential to even injure. It's pretty much a strike to the back of the head/neck and, as Dan mentions above, to a player that is not expecting it and might even be dazed or more from the original tackle.
A ban would be welcome.

No argument with the decision, but...
Does anyone else think Nanai-Williams contributes to the outcome? He seems to almost flip backwards towards the ground, and his right leg gets up pretty high without really being lifted all the way. Now, it might be that he did indeed flip himself round because he thought "If I'm going to be dumped, I'm going to at least try to get my arms down to break the fall". Just wondering if anyone else saw it like this. I think there were a few incidents of the "victim" doing more to turn a tackle into a spear than the tackler - one Bryan Habana incident springs to mind, but I'm sure there were others.
Anyway, as I say, no argument with the decision and this just seemed to be a moment of stupidity from Prior.

Nothing said or made about him will ever come close to being as good as that. The "Paul O'Connell pyjamas" bit makes me laugh out loud just thinking of it.

Could not agree more.

It does look like he gives him a little left jab/open palm at the next ruck (to which Bismarck doesn't react because he knows it will result in the slo-mo of his kick to the head up on the big screens), but nothing more! Agree that his reaction, or lack of it, was commendable.

What's your point Dave? By most boring, do you mean least exhilerating? If so, I'd agree with you, but I think this game was far from boring.
As for biggest waste of time, that suggests you think the other two games were also a waste of time. In which case you should probably choose something more interesting to do than watching rugby!
