Pffft, I knew backs couldn't ruck but this is taking the biscuit

A true rugby player who got to his position through having a gift and working hard. I'd love to see if any of the juiced up Goliaths coming through the ranks of English rugby now could do that in the final years of their career.

What's the point in having a TMO who doesn't know the laws. It's seriously pathetic.

So people are cited for "taking someone past the horizontal" in barely dangerous situations, yet this is legal???
Not saying it should be banned but seriously someone needs to sort out some consistency.

What a bunch of clowns.

The first could be an alleged "no arm" tackle and the second was what is now classed as a "tip" tackle.
I'm glad this referee's inconsistency allowed both.
Strange no citing commissioner is getting all excited - I think it's probably because it was only on Irish TV so didn't get into the press when Stuart Barnes or some ignorant BBC commentator makes a fuss of it. The cynic in me may be starting to think the citing bodies are affected by publicity...
