Salesi Ma'afu banned for one week for punch on Tom Youngs that went viral

Not to be a pedant but if you watch that tackle it was hardly a conventional rugby union 'tip-takle'.

More the result of the rugby league style tacking and the attacking player unfortunately getting his head in an awkward position.
I don't really think this rugby league tackle can be considered evidence that a tackle that used to be textbook is now outlawed in rugby union.

Brian O'Driscoll's incredible skill at training - Lions RAW teaser

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.

Midweek Madness - Ben John scores a bizarre Ospreys try

Midweek Madness - Trevor Nyakane goes into Beast mode with incredible lift

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.
