    [Law] Re: Marler grope

    Re: [6N] Eddie Jones Post Match Comments

    Interestingly, when in the past Eddie Jones has refused to comment on an English player’s shoulder charge, (no card as Nic Berry refused to review the incident) but slammed a USA player’s shoulder...

    [Law] Re: Marler grope

    Marlerís grope was unsportsmanlike behaviour, since it is clearly an attempt to provoke the Welsh captain. Had the Welsh man reacted and punched this lowlife, then heíd have been the one being red...

    Re: [6N] Eddie Jones Post Match Comments

    I agree with you. However, we had better start writing a 2-a-side variation to the LoTG right away then; because the media fueled forensic approach doesn’t look like it’s going away any day soon.

    Re: [6N] Eddie Jones Post Match Comments

    I think crossref is right. (Unless I am missing the subtlety of the argument.)
    Note: the head’s first movement is back in a head-contact tackle or head-contact shoulder charge, and forward in a...

    [Law] Re: Marler grope

    Marler’s Gypsy comment was racist. This grope is as bad as the Folau scandal. If the player doesn’t have the integrity to make a public apology, (I suspect he could even spell the word) then the...

    [Law] Re: Marler grope

    Thug, £20000 fine for calling Wales's Samson Lee 'Gypsy boy' at Twickenham had zero affect on his behaviour. Just ban him for life. No loss to rugby whatsoever.

    Re: [6N] Eddie Jones Post Match Comments

    When Brendan Venter f’d off back to South Africa in 2010, a lot of folks breathed a sigh of relief. It was short lived because Eddie Jones is continually over stepping the mark, of what is socially...
  11. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    France won’t have to extradite Israel Folau, if he lives and works in France, he will be subject to the Laws of this Land. I’d strongly suggest he watch what he posts online, only I’d hate to spoil...
  12. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    Tolerant? Like these?
    His comments about Catholics are offensive. But since I am completely comfortable with my own beliefs, I am quite happy for him to carry on spouting nonsense to his own...
  13. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    I put this thread in non-rugby talk for that very reason.

    I don’t think it is nearly so nuanced as you suggest. Israel Folau is not promoting Religious tolerance for others, so why on earth...

  15. Re: Munster vs Southern Kings 14 February 2020. - Yellow card

    Come to think of it, it was last Friday. But in my defense he did intend to prevent Red 16 from kicking off. Or maybe he kicked off first to distract his team mate.
  16. Re: Munster vs Southern Kings 14 February 2020. - Yellow card

    Didds,
    It appears my beered up Saturday night version of the incident is somewhat erroneous. However I cannot edit the post, so youíll have to excuse my misleading account. No malice intended.

  18. Re: Munster vs Southern Kings 14 February 2020. - Yellow card

    To add insult to injury, some Munster players applauded the referee’s decision as if the card was more than deserved. One day Chris Cloete’s sticking his nose in where it’s not wanted will back fire...

    Re: women's rugby

    Believe it, or not, an NFL ball is not only more aerodynamic, but also heavier than a Size 5 rugby ball. So my #13 still holds true, a lighter ball (size 4.5 =380g) has less inertia.

  20. Re: Munster vs Southern Kings 14 February 2020. - Yellow card

    The only full match replay I can find is behind a paywall. Maybe the second yellow card will make the extended highlight reel, if the editor can see past the 10 tries. Yes of course he was aided by...
