Barrington cleared while Barritt gets banned after no card

Not if they deemed the red card sufficient I guess.... Sounds to me like Barrington's clearing was on a technicality.... "He was cleared of dangerous charging".... That is what he was hauled in front of the judge for..... But if it was for say "dangerous play" or "dangerous tackling" would he still have been cleared?

Ahhhh D2. Whenever shit just gets stupid D2 reminds us all what rugby used to be like!

Not a bowl of cous cous in miles!!

Courtney Lawes trademark hit demolishes scrumhalf Will Cliff

Hope you had a nice break!

I suppose the motions of the pre hit are probably replicated on a lot of players he tackles however when he hits a big bloke the cartoonesque outcome isn't repeated...

Double tackle KO of Geoff Parling leads to a red card and citings

I've never exaggerated anything in my life... Not even that double length of field try I scored where I basically beat every defender twice....

Remember when it was only the bans than actually used to confuse us and not the laws themselves? Ahhh thems were the days...

So accidents are acceptable if they occur in what was originally going to be a legitimate challenge?

So will world rugby be issuing a pardon for the countless blokes recently banned and carded due to jumping for a high ball?

Courtney Lawes trademark hit demolishes scrumhalf Will Cliff

Agreed, but Brad was trying to tackle a much bigger bloke.... Courtney Lawes smashings and drive backs are normally on smaller players... Or smaller than him anyway... (Which is acceptable IMO)

Oh Jimmy I totally agree with you, the reasons for my views are that it would appear by many standards that one should go gracefully into the future rather than kicking and screaming whilst they're being dragged their anyway.... So I'm still making my mind up on which attitude to take....

You cannot run and duck with your head below your hips!

You can run with your head low and duck, but your head doesn't need to be on the ground to do it!
