Gavin Quinnell vs Peter Richards

Gavin Quinnell vs Peter Richards

Not really sure how to describe this tackle. Probably something like a ' double drag and flick into touch '. 10 points for effectiveness.

Some refs would possibly consider it a dangerous tackle? Personally I don't think there was too much wrong with it. Peter Richards probably sees it differently though.

I watched that game live, I couldn't stop laughing. One because Peter Richards gets on my nerves and two its Quinnels look over his shoulder as if to say "Yeah, And?" :o)

Oops. That was embarrassing! Richards looked like a 4 year old being playfully flung by his dad.

Reminds me of the Setanta / RTE feed this past weekend of the England Italy match -- commenting on Nick Easter, they said he looked like a throwback to #8s of yesteryear -- a "pints and pies" type of guy. Same seems to hold for the Quinnell boys.
