Gethin Jenkins still a tackling machine as he makes BIG hit on Aaron Cruden

Couldn't tackle me hard, I'm a forward... Lawes is clearly too chicken to tackle someone his own size...

Another example of forwards picking on small backs... just like Lawes....

Speaking of 'laws' I suggest we make new ones so that only backs can tackle backs... or so that forwards can only grab tackle backs...

Although flippant comments aside, I'm glad to see a nice big hit without the resultant whistle blowing and arm waving! :D

Georgian flanker sent off for kicking Irish player in U20s match

You've caught me here, unfortunately I didn't see the match so I cannot comment further other than saying that because of the history of the sport in tier 1 nations the discipline levels tend to be higher than some of the newer tier 2 nations which are actually fielding a large amount (if not all?) amateur players....

Georgia itself has also had a bit of a history of poor discipline. I'm not saying it is the right thing to do at all, but perhaps referees have things like that in the back of their minds and are looking out more so?

Again going back to this incident... it was one of those none incidents for me... technically according to the law, it is a red card, but I've seen harder contact with other limbs equating to a lesser punishment...

Georgian flanker sent off for kicking Irish player in U20s match

I'm a massive advocate of players clouting someone who is holding on to them outside of play, in this instance the irish player was on the ground and holding the leg of the georgian slowing him and restricting his playing abilities... however brains tell us that any form of leg to head type of movement is completely wrong....

As for the Irish not getting carded? I take it you missed the Ireland SA game? A saffa ran face first into an Irish airborne arse and the Irish player was red carded!

Rugby Training Mistakes: Training Like A Bodybuilder

Out of interest, the article picture shows Cudmore, is that an indication to people to say "don't see a guy like Cudmore and think if you train to be as big as him you can play rugby"? Or is there some sort of indication that Cuddles spends too much time sculpting?

Rugby Training Mistakes: Training Like A Bodybuilder

hahaha, definitely plenty of logic. I was taking the piss, I do train all over.

I think muscle specific exercises on machines have their place also, especially as examples of what muscle you're training as you can replicate the movement with free weights at another time... but as you said, the movement created on a machine will be extremely unlikely to happen on a pitch....
