Sergio Parisse harshly red carded as Brice Dulin gets tipped up in the air

Pretty sure that when you put someone in the recovery position you don't drag them up into the air by their arm. If he was doing that he'd have gotten slowly down next to him and would have supported the guys head.

No red card for the collision, accidents happen.

Penalty for the afters, yellow card at most for what could have been a dangerous movement if the guy had sustained neck damage. I don't think this is worthy of a red card.

Surely the IRB need to take a step back and change their guidance to referees in situations like this...

Second Rower Sam Whitelock scores unbelievable solo try vs the Reds

Tall-boys gallop, fat-boys trundle, small-boys scurry. Agree with everything you've said.

Gallopy gallopy gallop.

Last ditch tap tackle stops Jonny May from scoring 70m scorcher vs Edinburgh

I love seeing forwards chasing the little guys down. This reminds me of the Parling tap tackle for the Lions. Always a pleasure to see them!

I've got to build on this comment. Calling it a bit of a dick move is like calling the ocean a bit wet.

He'd destroyed him in the tackle. Absolutely nailed him. Took him to the cleaners, made him his bitch, slept with his mother and then instagrammed it. The lot.

Why, after such a massive show of dominance, would you need to slam his head into the turf?

Because you are part of an under-achieving, shit team and know that your time in the premiership is limited. Because you are frustrated that a decent team won't sign you and you know your season is coming to an end soon. Because you have no ability to understand that you've just proven everything which matters. The guy just makes himself look like a pathetic, tiny-brained twat of the first order.

Partridge has been played. Go home everyone, nothing left to see here.

I don't think there was much wrong with the tackle. Didn't mean to sound like I thought there was. I just think that when a guy is dazed, lying on the ground, with the ball metres away, slamming a guy's head into the ground is a bit of a dick move.

A totally disgusting moment of madness. He'd destroyed him in the tackle and the guy was possibly not all there. To then attack him on the ground is just stupid.

I hope he gets a decent ban.

I wonder whether we'll get any comments on here about how this sort of thing always goes on in certain places and at certain levels of the game, and how trying to stop it is basically the same as making everyone play ballet...
