I assume this is a joke?

I'm pretty sure only one foot needs to be in contact with the ground.

But that's a moot point here, because if you pause at 0:33 you'll see that in fact the second foot touches the ground and *then* BOSH, the tackle lands. I mean it really is quite a skill to get the timing that precise when you're travelling at such speed in hitting with such force.

All Blacks score late to deny Springboks in another Ellis Park classic

Stephen Jones is a total dickhead. And he's Welsh, and in his writing, he takes a vehemently anti-English view. He generally spins everything he can to make England look bad, arrogant, cocky etc.

Wow, that is hilarious! Absolutely loving the commentary, it was like a clip from Dodgeball!

On the tackle, maybe a bit of a sitting duck but it's always lovely to watch a bloke getting scythed in half like that. Great timing by Tuilagi.

Michael Hooper cited for off the ball punch against Argentina

Totally with you Jon.

If I were the citing commissioner, I'd exonerate Hooper and ban the cheating Argentinian player under the simulation law, which I'd have brought in as part of my other role as head of making up new laws, and which would attract a minimum two months ban and being forced to play your first game post-ban with your willy hanging out.

Well you weren't polite. So either try harder to be polite or expect an impolite response. ;)

Unfortunate really, because I enjoyed the rest of your first comment; just the random dig at the end that got my goat!

On your second comment, you're mistaken. They're not doing a victory lap, they're just acknowledging the fans for supporting them throughout a losing game. You should take it as a compliment that a team is happy at getting within 20 points of yours.

After that 2012 win over the ABs, I don't remember any English person making such claims.

Anyway, stick around, you'll like it here...

(Just after 7 mins if that Fawlty Towers thing doesn't start automatically at the right place)

Absolutely nothing in this. Rugby needs to very urgently bring in a "simulation" offence and levy very long bans on cheating scum like this guy, rolling about on the ground like he'd been shot. I don't like it in football, but in a physical game like rugby this type of crying wolf could be very dangerous indeed. Needs to be eradicated from the game.

What Hooper did here is no more than "a clip round the ear", as it used to be known. Cf. Basil Fawlty with that spoilt little bastard in the Gourmet Night episode:

I very nearly meted out the same punishment myself only today, when some prick on a bike rode up the pavement behind me (walking) and rang his bell. I think a swinging arm at that knobhead would have been perfectly reasonable. (I actually just fumed silently to myself for the next five minutes).

*Hooper. Although the point probably applies to Cooper too.

Completely agree with your comment, well put.

I reckon New Zealand fans, (I assume you're referring to fans, not players), run England a bloody close second for that worst winners award! Definitely got us beaten on ungracious losers, no doubt about that... ;)
