George North free to play after sickening landing worries fans

That's interesting actually. I often viewed BODs efforts as lateral or there abouts, but argued that in any case it would not matter as he regained control himself, but I didn't realise it would be potentially illegal...

Well their clearly is, given that you have stated severity of consequence is a very strong indicator of danger of action. I'm giving you an example of where the action could be extremely dangerous, but the consequences are not severe at all... So how do you police that? I've seen somersaults in NFL...Its not hard to see the potential for them in this sport...

Extreme intent with zero outcome!
Or zero intent with extreme outcome! Those are very real statements and we often see the latter in this sport.

Warren Gatland confirms British & Irish Lions coaching team for New Zealand tour

Am I the only one thinking that perhaps Borthwick is the only one who might add something different?

Unless Farrell can call up his son every 5 minutes and say "what does Eddie reckon about this?" Then he's not exactly had a gleaming record, not in the creativity department at least...

Howley and Gatland both are part of a currently abysmal team... Who have had abysmal tactics now ingrained into them... Sure Warrenball has its place, but never against the AB's... So does this guy have any other tactics?

Oh bloody hell, I'd say out if the frying pan and into the fire, but I think that applies more to the rugby community than Joubert...

Probably about the same time the Lima tackle on Hougaard became well watched....

TSRB's probably hasn't helped the matter either.....

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...
