    I think iím just going to accept we are unlikely to agree on this one... on the plus side we both think the outcome of a try to the ABs is fair.

    I donít agree with that interpretation of events, for me KB puts himself into contact with the ball carrier and does so in a manner that constitutes a shoulder-charge. The law puts the reposibility...
