I know it was just a theoretical but I feel it's still extremely dangerous and, I know I'm going into another theoretical but... I'm 99% sure that's why we have been instructed, at least here in Australia, that any tackle where the legs go above the horizontal should be YC at a minimum for putting the player into such a dangerous position.
    That brings you back to " potentially dangerous v actually dangerous" & that me ol mucker, is another thread entirely. :-!

    The reference to the Cathedral is clearly linked to the spiers of the building (the bed) while the poor fellow sliding out of his bed on the floor completes resemblance with the rest of the building...

    Feet up, head down... Spear tackle... Or should I say Spier tackle ;-)

    Jeepers, what a jape you can have at boarding school, any other activities we can chuckle at?

    Nothing wrong with theoretical questions.

    IMO that would be a PK and a YC as the tackler did have "regard to the players safety".

    Quite a few indeed... But that's a whole different thread
    Rule #1: If the law doesn't forbid it, it's allowed.
    Rule #2: If it ain't in the Law Book, don't make it up.

    You keep using that word "dangerous", amigo, but it doesn't mean what you think it means...

    What's the practical difference between "potentially potentially harmful", and "actually potentially harmful", other than tautology?

    I'm pretty sure there's one somewhere already but to me (seemingly as to RobLev as well) they are one and the same, the only difference is one bloke got lucky and the other didn't - it's the difference between throwing a punch and connecting and throwing a punch and missing... But let's save this for another thread eh?


    Edit: I believe there's a fair bit of that discussion in here
