  1. [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...
  2. [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...
  3. [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...

    Interesting article
    .... You can tack free speech on to any crackpot prejudice you have and suddenly you’re a lone truth-teller standing up to the hordes. It’s a clever rhetorical trick, the free...
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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...

    On the contrary, it is important for us to speak out against bigotry, otherwise this happens:

    Re: women's rugby

    Nothing about us, without us, I believe the saying goes.
    Or to put it another way, most of us on RRF are men past a certain age. In what way could our opinion matter on the subject concerning women...

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

    I believe it is Georgian referee Nika Amashukeli’s first season in the Pro 14. Friday night lights in Cork city, with a handy sized crowd of home supporters.

    Hello ReaF,
    Welcome to the forums. Excellent first post too. You may have to wait for a moderator to resolve the issue for you. You could PM one of them perhaps.

    Six Nations 2020

    By all accounts the Six Nations has gotten off to a good start. Well apart from Italy who were kept scoreless.
  21. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    WE can agree to disagree on that. However we definitely should start a forum poll, I bet he doesn’t last the year at Catalan Dragons, before creating some sort of scandal with his inane drivel.
  22. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    Bigotry isn’t recognized as one of the World’s major religions. People will NOT be getting at him because of his Christian religion, rather because of his ouvert and unapologetic bigotry. That and...
  23. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    Yes I agree. There’s a thin line.

    From experience I think Israel Folau will have a cultural shock here in France, when it comes to what is and is not acceptable. That line can be overstepped...
