David Pocock's Turnover Masterclass against the Blues

Think we're somewhat the odd ones out here.. looked to me like he released in all those situations, he didn't do the little bird flapping thing, but there is no requirement too..

My that's exactly... If they're both so great (not denying that) then why limit yourself to just one of them?

Huge Hit From Peter Kimlin Leaves Leigh Halfpenny with more injury woe

I found the topic very interesting. I myself wear a head guard as it does provide some cushioning from head on head collisions (or head on anything else), but that is more down the route of 'splits and cuts and general bangs' rather than anything inside my head. But mainly it's due to protecting against the old Cauli's! However when I'm playing flanker, I prefer to play without the scrum cap, as I find it's more restrictive to hearing etc...

As far as being reckless - I can't really say whether it changes my style (personally). I remember when I was at school and a lot smaller I discovered shoulder pads which gave me more confidence - so there is definitely a psychological aspect of padding.

1/2p is certainly a worry from a neutral spectators point of view - I don't see him lasting long if he continues to end up on the short end..

A Tribute To big Brad Thorn, who will now retire aged 40

Don't get me wrong, he deserved punishment due to the fact it was after the whistle - penalty or even a yellow, but then again, Smit had no need to push Thorns head down, so in some ways I'd be inclined to penalise Smit, then reverse it for Thorns retaliation... the actual movements and end result were sort of a non event - as impressive as it was!

It is indeed... ok, maybe I exaggerated a little, but Smit landed on his back.. wouldn't have been comfortable, but it wasn't particularly dangerous.

..unless of course 'dangerous' is referring to what could have been; if Smit had landed on his head/neck...? As opposed to what DID happen...

Quick concussion check them throw him out there... We make them tough in the SH, it's a gladiatorial sport and players should play on until they die or until the game ends... In ancient Roman times in the Colosseum, many gladiators fought until the death, rugby is the modern version.

Death, gladiators, cous cous!

Karmichael Hunt and the ARU's realistic response

Mixed reviews. On one hand the guy was 'punished' did his time (or paid his fine) and therefore should he not have a chance to continue with his life. If you get caught speeding you pay your fine and on you go without much hindrance..

But then on the other hand, it's supplying... who cares if he wants to load himself up with the drug.. but others, that is another matter...

And then... drugs are drugs, but as RD said, Kurtley Beale who can't keep his hands to himself gets another go - isn't that worse?
