New footage shows moment Owen Farrell pushed Scotland players in the tunnel before kick-off

....I think International rugby and professional rugby is good at making itself look bad without any aid from the players...

This was no more than a shoving match before; arguably, one of those most rivalrous matches in rugby history.. England Vs Scotland in one form or another has been a 'thing' for well over 1000yrs..this match was just another chapter in that long history, England came into the game off the back of a very good record both against Scotland and also since Eddie Jones became coach, Scotland have been firing hard but missing their mark quite a lot, this was their chance to hit the bullseye dead on...the crowd were amped.. the whole thing was a boiling pot..

Also, consider the end to the game, hugs between teams, hand shakes all round... I'd say scuffles when a match is over is far more damaging than a scuffle before the match..

Agreed with nhunter... someone has you by the throat, perhaps trying to push their face away is now deemed excessive... Bullshit call imo! ...same as the Farrell thing, both nothing events...

Red card not enough as Higginbotham gets suspended for dangerous tackle

I'm so torn with the thinking, "the lack of injury to the victim", when talking about mitigating factors...

On one hand, it's great because they're not playing what if's, the guy wasn't injured, maybe the tackle wasn't THAT bad, so knock a bit off the punishment...

But then on the other hand, had it been Stephen Larkham on.the receiving end (he was Mr Glass Jaw right?), same tackle etc, would he be looking at a greater punishment for a more severe injury even though the force etc is still the same?

I dunno, maybe I'm just over complicating it - seems like overall he got a ban, can't say it's surprising and probably deserved..

Haven't you heard the news recently? Apparently in this modern utopia we live in where no one must be offended, having dreads and not being black is the hair equivalent of black face...

Obviously I expect a complaint to be filed to World rugby in due course!

Being a white man who has a few black mates I am thoroughly offended by his hair style...

I think you're making more of a deal... he's a knob sure, but I'd say his 'petulance' is calculated... he knows it winds people up...

And to be fair to him, he's not afraid of the big boys...whereas you might get the likes of ROG being a bit of a cock sometimes, he's not going to willingly get himself into it with many...

Agree with you on a whole, it was fun to see *controversy* but it was a bit nothing... You're right about it looking like something being said to Ford... I guess we'll never know the full details.. maybe nothing much was said but "have a good game lad" or something like that, but Farrell may have thought he doesn't want anyone chatting to his playmaker...
