    Did NO have a chat to D'Arcy? If not, then from NO's position on the field, it is reasonable to say that he must have determined that D'Arcy didn't obstruct RMC. Don't really see what the big deal is here.

    That's entirely my point, there's no place in the game for such carry on. We agree, targeting key players is not what the sport is about. (Jumping knees first into the back of an opponent is also unacceptable in my opinion. )

    Although the NZ press appears to have glossed over the comment ; Fairfax NZ News did have this to say :
    The Irish were refusing to rise to All Black Steve Hansen's bait yesterday, claiming they have more improvement in them ahead of the third test in Hamilton on Saturday.
    A 'pat on the back' to the Irish, could be taken as being condescending, especially in the context of what was a cracking test match. (80 minutes of Rugby left to play, that counts for more than the "war of words".)

    A pat on the back is NOT a condescending gesture or comment in THIS country. Steven Hansen is KIWI and the comment was in answer a question by a KIWI journalist on a NEW ZEALAND television station.

    This simply reinforces my assertion that journalists from the NH will just about do or say anything to make copy and sell papers; deliberately misconstrue comments and gestures, take words and phrases out of context, tell outright lies, set traps for rugby players and other sportsmen, hound celebrities to death (literally) and even stoop so low as to hack into the mobile phones of celebrities, politicians and murdered children!

    Disgraceful pricks!!!

    Err it's a KIWI paper saying that there is bait to rise to???

    (Don't think however you'll get many people defending some of the activities that journalists get \ got up to).

    I for one however buy my paper every day and just apply the relevant 'bullcrud' filters depending which paper I'm reading.

    And I don't buy papers at all, for reasons that become obvious when you understand my attitude to them.... not even the local rag.

    The trouble is Toby, unless you actually see a full interview in person, you often can't even tell when to apply the "bullcrud" filter, or even if its required.

    This is one thing I will give Television New Zealand credit for. Even if they only show part of an interview during the broadcast (perhaps due to time constraints), they always make the full interview available on their website, and give you the URL to it during the broadcast.

    There is no trying to hide or suppress any parts of the interview that don't necessarily fit with whatever angle they are taking.

    Anyway...

    Could someone please point me to where the law covers whip wheeling in the scrum?
    If you look hard enough, there'll be a penalty in there somewhere.

    The greatest ruck is one that never forms, but sometimes it can't be helped. #Woshkabomy

    Just to lighten the mood, here is one of my favourite video clips



    Its a very funny clip in its own right, but what is even funnier, is that it contains more than a mere modicom of Truth!!!

    It's like the comments about books on their back cover:

    Critic says:

    "This book was a pile of rubbish and was far from being the best book I have ever read".
