Chris Hala'ufia huge hit then red card for shoving player's head into the dirt

Your reading comprehension is awful my friend, I will resist the temptation to make reference to NZ schooling, because the kiwis I've met have been well read and not half wits....

Read Pyes comment again, he made no mention of it being a bad tackle...

Phill,

Whilst they are not 'links' you haven't exactly held yourself back with regards to dishing out insults...

Whilst I am not offended by any of your comments, below is a list just from every above comment you've made (not looked nor counted the below lot, and not bothered with any of your previous comments either)..

"Stroudos, Drg, Dan Knapp are all of the same ilk. Soft ,non physical players." - You don't know any of us, nor our playing style, yet you make a comment like that...

"I'm glad I have made an impact on you soft Northerners/poms." - nice sweeping generalisation...

"Its you poms that cannot handle the rough stuff." - If you say so..

"At such a young age too................never mind old boy at least you can watch wugger at wugby school , what a bunch of nice lads they are too.........." - Not insulting at all, however condescending none the less... No idea wtf 'wugger at wugby school' is supposed to imply? Yes I did play rugby at rugby school, as well as for my town, for my uni, played in Europe, played some games in NZ too... (although apparently not according to you)..

"Your Canadian wouldn't expect anything less..........." - shit spelling aside, that is a personal dig at someone.

Does anyone know if Hala'ufia took to twitter to apologise? It may explain the length of his ban...

...then he'd have broken his neck and I'm sure us as a rugby community would be quite upset... Your point?

What is rather amusing is that you refer to anyone who isn't in your camp as 'old farts'.. whilst I'm still around my mid 20's so don't consider myself an old fart, I find this amusing... More so that when you consider how the 'old' game was played, whilst I was still in nappies or yet to be born it was far nastier and blatantly brutal than it is today... so... old farts are the softies? mhmm... I'm sure they'd agree...

"I wonder if any of these guys played professional rugby?"

Um, are you insane? Of course we all have...

Stroudos is actually Rupeni under a pseudonym (can you not tell by the picture?). Dan again, is actually a nickname, the picture hue is a little off but if you look closely you can tell that it is indeed the one and only Jason Robinson... I myself, being a Dr an all can only be Jamie Roberts... but um, err, a second row/back row version... oh no wait, that's just my nicknames cover story...

I'm not disputing that it's an incorrect title. It is more the fact that over the years we've come to expect the out of the ordinary stuff on RD and whilst this is far from ordinary, it's not quite what I was expecting - which was I suppose a break against play, someone running up the field with a fatty in support.. or something along those lines.

This whole try was fantastic and it worked very well, it was perhaps technically better than a prop running the length, but for amusement purposes, I want to see a prop chasing imaginary hamburgers up the length of the field...

On the tackle:

I think 'arms' were attempted to be used, so that's not a problem. Was it a bit high? Not 100%, but shoulder came very close to head, but then the guy has massive shoulders soooo.... I dunno..

Shoving players head into the dirt:

This isn't something I could ever imagine being a red card offence, but then this incident was almost too hard to be anything other than a red card offence... I'm sort of caught in the middle... I think when players deliberately provoke players by pushing their heads/faces in to the ground it could be a yellow because it's not a particularly sporting action... "act contrary to good sportsmanship" if you will... but this seemed to be more... 'slammed' into the ground seems more apt... so what then? It has gone beyond an act contrary to good sportsmanship, it's no longer a little niggle, a little dig, it's become a more violent (on appearance) action.

So it's difficult to say "be a knob and you'll get a yellow, but do the same thing more violently and we'll yellow card you by looking at it differently"...so it sort of automatically falls into the red card territory :/

Stroudos you missed out the bit about cous cous, vegans and warriors, therefore I'm only giving you a 9/10.
