George North knocked out again as Nathan Hughes gets red card for knee

The thing is Dave, I weigh nearly 230lbs (converted it just for you (: ) and I can still step backs, spin out of tackles and remain somewhat elusive (I'm a second row/back row).. Granted an extra 50lbs is a lot more weight, but the guy is a professional athlete. I'm not suggesting he jumps, nor am I suggesting he did this on purpose. I just think his weight is not really a great excuse.

Kelly Haimona is Italy's current fly half, he weighs 235lbs... He has silky foot work, of course that is comparing forwards and backs, but every player has the ability to somewhat control themselves.

I honestly think Hughes was trying to brush past North, or perhaps dislodge the ball as he went past. I don't believe he was aiming to injure or KO North at all.

Dave, the guy is a professional athlete, he's not a 280lb couch potato...

I've known fat props weighing 250 who are more agile than ballerinas..

Oliver, we disagreed on Lawes, but I totally agree with your comments on here... I'm confused...

Yeh I did have a little look back at that and I notice that you're both defending Lawes. My apologies. :)

Francois Steyn banned for 5 weeks after rescinded red card is overturned

Said it above, a lot of people are saying "if the 9/8 didn't get involved would it be a spear?"

My answer would be "if Steyn wasn't involved it DEFINITELY wouldn't have been a spear"... so it has to be a red and a ban of some sort.

Stroudos said it below, to me it's the fact that Steyn was the one 'lifting'.

A lot of people say 'take the 9 out and would it be a spear/tip'... I guess the argument could be, "not 100% sure, but if you took Steyn out of the tackle it definitely wouldn't have been a spear/tip'..
