George North free to play after sickening landing worries fans

Is that correct? I didn't realise that... Always looked at that BOD trick years ago with admiration.

I'm still not 100% convinced on May... What are your views on Yarde?

Not really, if you believe he was out for the count then he was lying about his worry of a neck injury, or truly had no idea that he'd actually been knocked out...

If it's the first then he's an idiot, if it's the second then it's very concerning given the fact he was allowed to continue to play.

I noticed today Northampton have sat North out until he has had a head injury assessment - interesting that they didn't sit him out of the rest of the game as you suggested above...

That's quite a trend int he game due to referees and citing mob being so heavy handed with such minor things. Nathan Sharpe claimed he was butted by a south african... erm... can't think of any more, but there are ones...

That would be amusing...

But in my example, lets say it is really obvious that the tackler is intent on going in to take the blokes legs out... how do you sanction that if it's all outcome based?

Obviously North suggested that he didn't want to move because of a potential neck injury, are you suggesting he's lying (or made it up without even realising because he was KO'd)?

I'm hoping that North was telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth, otherwise the medical staff that assessed North either took his word for it that he wasn't out cold, or weren't able to assess him correctly.

I am with Stroudos in the sense that I believe anything that LOOKS like a KO should be treated as a KO, regardless of what the player states etc.

HP hardly closed Brown down... he stood still and braced himself and Brown ran into him....

...I don't have an issue with standing your ground... and if someone is silly enough to run into you then they better expect you to be braced...

Oliver, there is a difference to complete simulation and part simulation...

Yeh, he got hit on the back of the head by Hooper, no arguments there... but if someone had run up to him on the street, done that, then punched him mum in the face, would he have rolled around on the floor, or would he have got right back up and fought back?

He exaggerated the effect of the hit... so did he exaggerate the effect of the cooper hit as well? From the angle shown, I cannot judge whether his face hit Coopers shoulder.. I'd suspect it did, but I'm not 100% sure it was with the force he showed as he fell to the ground.

Player jumps so high and you clip his feet so hard he does a full somersault, lands on his feet runs on to score a try... what is the sanction?

That's because you're a cous cous eater, I'd have smashed him to the ground and broken his face....

Because I'm a warrior, it's all part of the game!
