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

I think that's what I was thinking about the whole incident and many like it... It just doesn't look 'right'....

It's that somewhat negative playing for the penalty style...

It happens with spear tackles all the time, people fly in pushing and shoving... maybe it's ok.. no one wants to see their team mate pole axed, but it's that sort of anti play to the whistle behaviour that I see creeping in here... Toner goes up, Ali contests but hits Toner and then everyone starts gesticulating.

I think this is a bit of a shame. Player safety is of course important, however these sorts of incidents eating into the game.

I definitely don't like this *thing* creeping into the game.. Makes you wonder how many other aspects of the game could be ruined by this sort of thing?

Naturally Stuart Barnes commentary is his usual drivel... "arms flapping around like a wild chicken saying help help".... Firstly as someone has mementioned strauss was tapping out, happy to accept that his counter is nullified, secondly don't try and be Bill Mk2, you'll never make it!

As for the incident, only one way to describe it, cous-cous, or indeed vegan... Make of that what you will...
