Thierry Dusautoir blindesides Colin Slade with punishing tackle

You won't fish for long if you cast your rod.

I laughed out loud when I saw DrG's original comment, and once again when Oliver commented.

As said before, Oliver, Lawes just hit Plisson so hard he flipped. He didn't lift him. Or maybe Plisson dived.... *hides behind Stroudos*

It's not the timing of the hit, it's the way his neck snaps back... ;-)

Porn.

Mathieu Bastareaud smashes Alex Lozowski with MONSTER hit

If he now goes from being a total monster in the cup and becomes a waste of space in the 6N, it'll be the most Bastareaud thing ever.

Most tackles are physics.

What Haskell and Farrell have? That's chemistry.

Francois Steyn red carded for attempting to take Johnny Sexton's head off

If your tackling action (ie you are virtually upright, your should hits their chest, but your head hits their head) is part of the considered circumstances, I believe.

World Rugby are trying to get people to tackle the way that we were taught in minis. Think of it that way. Hitting the ball with your chest to try and wrap it up is probably going to cause a head clash. In that event, you've endangered the player recklessly and may face sanction.

Will Skelton carded for slap after theatrical James Davies fall

This makes me really angry, because World Rugby have made everything about 'outcomes' nowadays. The sanctions are worse if you injury someone. World Rugby, as we've been saying for a few years now, must take action to stamp out simulation.

Does anyone actually know how you go about bring new directives into the game? Who makes the decision? Who would need to be lobbied in order to make these changes?
