Should Waisake Naholo have been yellow carded for taking out Liam Williams?

William's performance was indeed entertaining, if that sort of hamartia is your cup of tea, but he didn't make the role his own. Huget and Habana have both offered far more poignant depictions of loss and melancholy, which both provoked introspective and facilitated regrowth. Huget's anagnorisis on the floor, a moment of breath-taking beauty, revealed emotions in myself that I felt had felt lost forever.

Yes, both are penalty offences, but Williams should have immediately had them overturned for being an absolute cockhole.

No penalty for either. Williams somehow got hurt before he even hit the ground in the first video. In the second he was milking that all day long.

Here is an equally convincing performance, for those of you who like this sort of thing:

I'm still walking about four inches taller after that display. What a defensive effort. The team played their hearts out for each other.

Our defence seems sound. Now we need to look to focus on our attack, as Jones has rightly highlighted. We've got some really exciting players but few are world class, I hope to see Jones sculpt some of them into true world class individuals.

CJ Stander banned for 1 week after red card for knocking out Pat Lambie

Another difference is that in the NFL you have special teams. In rugby you have the Welsh.

I just want you to know that I thought these looked like lyrics, put them to music, and you only went and bloody won Eurovision.

James Haskell humble after smashing tackle on David Pocock

"A player must not tackle nor tap, push or pull the foot or feet"

Haskell didn't go near his feet. Upper legs maybe, waist probably. Pocock jumped so that a ball which should have hit him in the head hit him in the ribs. Haskell was committed, and due to Pocock's jumped fucked him up a little. Bloody lovely. Close the thread, this conversation is done.

James Haskell humble after smashing tackle on David Pocock

Pocock jumped to catch a shitty pass rather than stretch and take it at head height. If we were being absolutely daft about the 'not tackling someone who doesn't have a foot on the ground' we would only be allowed to tackle walking players, not running ones, seeing as having one foot on the ground at all times is the f*****g definition of walking.

The laws were not designed to stop this sort of tackle. It was a hospital pass, end of.

If we were going to continue taking the piss out of our sport, we'd cite Haskell for this, and then we'd see players starting to jump to catch balls whenever a player is charging them down, safe in the knowledge that any contact is 'taking a man in the air'.
