Thought I recognised the name.... The guys got a reputation for being a prick... He should be put in stocks and flogged...

Will have to research Ashton's try, but I'm starting to think that he was being mouthy to that 7(?)... Perhaps that was the reason...

As for this... Skelton was off for the remainder of the match with a yellow, he should have smacked that diving prick when he went to shake hands! He's off anyway!

Don't get me wrong, I don't condone sucker punched, but that diving prick deserved something worthwhile to hit the deck for...

Saracens secure draw with hard fought Chris Ashton try in extra time

Looks a lot like that to me Stroudos! I can only hope it was something like:
Ashton: "unlucky guys, you played really well, Lions tour coming up so chins up, you'll be ok"
George: "Ashton mate, it ain't over til it's over, stop kissing the taffies and get back!"


But I'd imagine it was something more:
Ashton: "hahaha useless pricks, I'll have you all day any day!"

It's funny, Ashton is both a sore loser and a bad winner... Humble players have always appealed to me, or players that let their rugby do the talking (as you said) or players that loom eerily around with big eye brows or big fists, that you know you should just try and avoid where you can...

Francois Steyn red carded for attempting to take Johnny Sexton's head off

Betson got a few hits in though iirc. Honestly he was one of those flankers that would ruin your day, whether it be physically or whether it be because you have it in your mind that he's coming for you...

Bloody hell, and, with all respect, you're an old bugger too!

...Or maybe I'm just a dirty bastard!

So, shoulder to chest = fine

Shoulder to chest + head to head = not fine? Therefore card?

I guess that makes sense if say shoulder hits chest and arm hits head... But still, certainly a shake up in the way the game has been for a while..m

Wait, did you mean first EVER yellow card? Or first yellow under the new directives?

Haha, no I do understand, I suppose you're right that we've been on a slippery slope to persistant high tackles, however I always preferred the slight freedom referees were given before now, where they could say "yup that was blatant and intentional, red card" or "I totally understand he ducked last moment and you just caught him high, penalty only..."

I'm inclined to agree with Stroudos here....

...If I pulled out of tackles on the 10 then I'd probably not do anything all game...
