And was the man on the grassy knoll at the Nick Kennedy assassination.

He also faked the Jamie Noon-landings.

Yup, he has now spent 54 weeks of his career suspended. What... a... bellend.
Swearing at a referee.
The man is a total liability in high pressure games. Move on, drop him for good.

The problem is that this won't cut it at the top level. The fitness there is another level. A great try, but not one I'm keen to see him attempt to recreate for England.

Dylan Hartley has, I believe, spent 50 weeks of his career in the top flight on suspension. If he gets a ban here then he will probably have spent over a year of his playing career as a suspended player.
It looks to me like he's going to get himself a ban. As Eddie says, he has previous and he's not going to get any time off for good behaviour.

Fair enough, but how the hell did he get concussion from that? His head didn't really hit the ground... Thanks MattyP for the info.

Given that he didn't land on his head and it didn't seem that he landed all that badly, Whitelock sure stayed down for a while. I hope he really was hurt and wasn't milking it. These sorts of challenges are unnecessary, but so is trying to get another player sent off with your response.

I wasn't arguing that punching is acceptable at all, but context is considered to be important in a court of law. I'm genuinely not arguing that punching on a rugby field is acceptable, although perhaps at times understandable. I'm explaining it, but not excusing it. I really wasn't condoning it.
We live in a society where we don't want to see that sort of aggression in public, but to a certain extent allow rugby fields to be outlets for it. Therefore we celebrate behaviour on a rugby pitch which we wouldn't think of celebrating in the high street, for example tackling someone so hard that they struggle to get up.
I was trying to make the point that it was this lack of context in Tuilagi's case which made it so much worse. That is not to say that punching on the field is bad, but I can completely understand it when it breaks out, but is also why I have huge amounts of respect for the individuals who can quickly shake hands and forget about it.
I like the way they shake hands at the end of this - you wouldn't see that in the high street:
I also think the Tom Young's incident a year or so ago, when he got clocked in the head, was another good case in point.

This guy is too fast. He should be forced to wear weights.
Great for USA rugby to have a player like him bringing more attention to the sport. I hope that he is fit for the Olympics, it'll be huge for the development of the sport in the USA if they can pull off a medal in that event.
