The trouble I have with his dive is that it just looks ridiculous. If he had some grace or got some air like Rokocoko or could do a flip or cart wheel or whatever like Cooper, or a hillarious dance like Cipriani once in a while, well, sure, no problem. But the dive looks like some uncoordinated fat kid scoring a try for the first time. »
I assume the ball was over the goal line so ruck is over and it's ok for the player to strip the ball on the ground. And if not, I'm so glad the TMO didn't go back 105m and ruin a perfectly good try. The Hurricanes also scored one of the tries of the year the other day, only for a marginal forward pass to ruin it.
