George North knocked out again as Nathan Hughes gets red card for knee

[ ] because they are trying to hold the ball up

Looking back at a classic Steve Walsh moment as he announces retirement

I believe that if you haven't got anything nice to say, you shouldn't say it.

Weather's nice.

Courtney Lawes lays into another unsuspecting flyhalf, this time Jules Plisson

I love that most threads end up with us squabbling like schoolboys.

Pete, create a proper account and stick around. This is a quality post.

Well explained, I apologise for my 'bullshitty shit shit comment'. It was beneath my usually intellectable standards.

This thread is getting boring. Let's pretend we're Kiwis!

Ur gay bru!

*scratches his eyes out*

This is getting tedious from both of you. Time to stop now.

The law has been designed to prevent dangerous LIFTING play. Tackling is inherently dangerous. Every example you have cited refers to a player lifting another into the air, which adds an element of danger which isn't necessary in order to complete a tackle.

Now there are a couple of things to point to the fact that you are wrong.

1. The laws you yourself have cited.
2. Nigel Owens said at the time that the tackle was fair.
3. The TMO and Nigel Owens reviewed the tackle and decided it was fair.

Now I know that you feel that you are in the right, but surely you can't argue with these points?

This is a fantastic community. I grow tired of the 'you are ruining rugby' argument which gets trotted out from time to time, plus the misspelt contributions from the occasionally Kiwi whose parents leave him with the computer, but generally there are some great points made here.

I love the growing number of French posters who usually make excellent points and bring an insight into a completely different culture. Their comments tend to be well-written in extremely impressive English.

There are the odd 'keyboard warriors' who get stuck in from time to time, but generally the comments on here are enlightening. There are the same predictable responses every time a video is shared, but I enjoy it.

I wish more people posted under their real names and pictures. I think it would encourage a little more honesty and respect.

Bullshitty shit shit.

There is nothing in the laws about how far the ball is and you know it! If Plisson had kicked the ball at the moment he passed it the ball would have been 30ft away. Oliver's example here is perfectly valid.

Perhaps I'm leaping to Oliver's defence because he's received a lot of stick, some of it a wee bit personal, because he has stuck to his guns. Now he has shown an example of a near-identical hit, and you say it would have been a penalty.

If this was late enough for a penalty then so was Lawes' tackle.
