Nicolas Sanchez banned for dangerous challenge after only being penalised

The only issue with that argument im, is that it then takes into account the red players actions or non actions as if he was a tackler... If we said he literally stood still with arms out to catch the ball, Sanchez jumps and catches it, but collides and breaks red players nose, then is it really in the spirit of the game to send off the red player.... We see it in other aspects of the game where players are not inclined to move out of the way for players chasing a kick.... I'd push for that ideal in these scenarios, if you are realistically running to catch a ball and eyes are on the ball then I don't believe you should be held at fault if some silly tit decides to jump at your face....

Scotland's Fraser Brown shown yellow for dangerous tackle on Elliot Daly

As you guys both said, that's the best way to do it, also means if you brace enough you get to stick a knee into his stomach/jewels...Simply flopping around like a wet celery isn't going to do anyone any good...

Scotland's Fraser Brown shown yellow for dangerous tackle on Elliot Daly

See it's weird, you know the recent fox TV interview with a try scorer, that is where if we could get an immediate interview with brown, it could yield some interesting information...

...Was he shaking his head because he felt it wasn't that bad? Was it because he was angry at himself so his head shake was at himself? Did he genuinely think there was nothing wrong with it? I mean surely he saw it himself on the big screen, like you stated, it was very close to being head/neck but it WAS back first... But either way, like I think maybe Exeter coach mentioned a couple weeks ago when he had a player sent off (for a high tackle), 'we shouldn't be arguing about fractions, we should just avoid it altogether' (paraphrased). Arguing the guy landed a back hair JUST before his neck is what you should be doing when appealing your ban, not what you should be doing to a ref to tell him your indiscretion was JUST on the border of good....

England crowned Six Nations 2017 champions after demolition of Scotland

I think it was more to do with England adopting the same sort of attitude that the AB's have....Therefore if they are arrogant bullies then it stands to reason that is also what the AB's are... Chances are though that they are just two rugby teams filled with talented players who are enjoying some exciting top level stuff and are getting the results they so desperately want and need....

I have to admit I don't know where the arrogance tends to come in.. AB's never seen anything but humble (as a team in post match interviews - always praising opposition etc) and so far, I've seen the same from England...Only hiccups was EJ's response to Italy's attempt to mix things up - which is a credit to Italy.

Super Rugby 2017 - Round 3 Highlights

Weird you should mention that...I've thought EXACTLY the same thing in the past...If you could set up a ruck on one side of a post, shift to the other side of the post and leave some bodies on the floor at the first ruck then basically you have a large undefendable area..for a guaranteed try (is undefendable a word?!?!)..

....I was wondering what the score was with the "Peter North" comment... I was going to Google it as I figured it was unlike you to make a typo...Now I'm not so sure I want to....

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen Dan and Stroudos get so lambasted on their views....

..I've got to say Stroudos' attempts to be biased tend to come across as fairly neutral and Dan more so.... So no idea where you're getting your thoughts from Krip..

As for arrogant bullies?! Really?! It's rugby, don't get me wrong, I'm not accusing you of being a proper cous cois eater, but there was nothing particularly untowards in Sats game.... There were niggly bits, but you have to realise that Scotland have been playing VERY well and so have England and i personally believe Saturday was a demonstration of two massive hearts colliding. I don't think Scotland lost because they were a bad team, I think they lost because of 1) injuries, 2) brain judgement... They slipped under the pressure and rather than hitting the reset button and refocussing, they panicked and tried to force the game.

The niggles are natural, there was a lot of emotion on the line. Frankly Browns tackle on Daly was probably the 'worst' part of the game...

Anyway, if you didn't enjoy the game then that's fine, but I think your assessment of England who I dare say have been pretty humble - minus the chat after the Italy game, is a bit off....

Yours truly,

Not an England fan....
