Quite a bit of dubious play in that clip... Well in the eyes of the law anyway, some of those tackles COULD have resulted in reds...

Speaking of reds, what was that little manoeuvre that the reds player pulled on that tah's player (hooker?)...bit odd looking if it was accidental..

I thought the same pretzel. Even more dubious is knowing that the reds player is the tahs backup on the national team. Trying to earn a starting spot by eliminating the competition?

Yep every Reds player wants to injure all their competition. Jeez you're on a roll aren't you?
While I at least agree with you on this one that it was rather malicious (Unlike Cooper's tackle), I doubt it has anything to do with Wallaby selection. Faingaa is 3rd choice at most, and it probably ahs more to do with levelling the score of something previous or just trying to stop him within that game than anything else..

Hmm yeh I have to agree with Eggman on this one lol. I can't imagine that a player would give that much thought when doing that kind of stunt, had to be something related to the match itself, as eggman said, either levelling a dig from earlier, or trying to neutralise that player for the game.

I believe - though not SH, the glasgow kiss (headbut) when Scotland celebrated beating Aus has to be in Plays of the season...
