I guess you need her tweet in order to put his explanation into context.

Fair play to her for apologising and I don't blame her for jumping to that conclusion.

It's not the first time I've seen sign language on a rugby pitch, but this was a lot more wholesome.

Ali Williams controversially Sin Binned after colliding with Devin Toner in the air

I think lifting in the line-out should continue, but lifting in open play is possibly something which I could live without. I like to see a genuine contest for a high ball.

If minimising risk is your bag, then you could argue that lifting to catch a kick-off places an unfair burden of risk on the other player attempting to get the ball. They are necessarily going to be attacking the ball at speed, and will be unable to collect the ball without some sort of collision. What could Ali Williams have done in this situation other than allow Toner to collect the ball and then hit him on the ground?

Perhaps a piece of fine-tuning that few in the game would miss, as it would continue to advantage/disadvantage both sides equally.

Barnes got that wrong, but I've not seen it before on a pitch so perhaps he wasn't sure how to deal with it. I'm trying to be charitable.

Jesus bro , you guys up in the NH play weak. Rugby is a combat sport , with combat !

In NZ my dad used to choke me every night just to put me to sleep , no fairy lullabys like you pansies in the NH . I guess they just breed us stronger and tougher in the SH . Say what you like mate , you wouldn't last 5 minutes on a pitch in NZ , where guys get choked every five minutes just for something to do .

When I was a child I was abused by a health-foods seller , man that shit made me hate cous-cous .
