Slade really needs to look at his technique. He rushed up far to quick & was carrying far too much speed still, realised who it was, and then put his head on the wrong side again all because Nonu saw it and changed his line slightly!!
WelshOsprey, your an arrogant prick. Typical of the Welsh (although not all Welsh). BET YOU DONT EVEN PLAY RUGBY!!! Just because you may not HEAR about it, doesnt mean it doesnt happen. Believe me, i play the game hard and fast. Im an advocate of rugby being a physical, contact sport and would rather smash people all day then score trys!! But their is NO PLACE in the game for going above the horizontal in a tackle!! Tip tackles are dangerous. »
SPOT ON MATE. It doesnt matter if the elbows go above the 90, i believe its if the players body passes the 90% thresh hold. As you can see here clearly from the replays, it is dangerous and whilst it may not be intentional, the player does go above 90, is driven with downward force and does land on his neck!!! Not often i say this, but the ref is 100% correct
