Eben Etzebeth's giant frame revealed after jersey rip in scuffle

Quad looks like a child playing with bubble wrap.... He sees the jersey is ripped and looks more interested in continuing to rip it....

Friday Funnies - Vaea Fifita avoids the tackle with perfectly executed jump

TBH HH, I wouldn't actually care if this did become part of the game... I mean I would if I got KO'd as a result, but generally speaking it wouldn't bother me... What gets me is the lack of consistencies, or lack of blanket rulings...

We saw it last week with the "it's not that big a deal" accidental poke in the eye from an AB on a wallaby.... sure, it wasn't that bad, but it seems that the laws have such variation across the globe, which personally I deem as unacceptable. I don't mind if referees balls up things, but when the citing lot get hold of things, there should be very little variation. Of course, discounts for no priors etc.. but that should be about it.

SANZAR should intervene if a sanction is brought in!

Front row sparks mass brawl and three red cards in Brive vs Grenoble clash

I thought he had a sort of Joe Marler look about himself when he sat down at the end of the video...

Yeahhhh, sorry about the analogy, I was trying to think of how best to describe it... I'm sure there are plenty more and far better scenarios that I could use, but that was the only one that came to mind...

Totally agree. Free expression is what makes the free world so awesome. Otherwise we'd all be following some pathetic strict code of conduct or something awful!

I like the idea of doing something magical on the field whenever I fancy it, who knows, maybe I'll feel the need to magically poke someone in the eye or something, I shouldn't be hindered from doing so....

....which is why I'm going to try out for the AB's...

However after watching the video again, looks like the entire pack had shit technique...

From the second row point of view...

If you imagine a spot, the prop in question is a spot and the second row and other prop are 'fingers'... they can put in an incredible amount of force and 'pop' out comes a prop! :P

Second rows are taught to get lower as the props get lower and the whole pack gets lower... so as to get lower than the other pack and as you drive you're driving forwards as well as at an upwards angle, trying to force their front row up and out of the contest... basically boils down to shit technique by Jourdain...

You cous cous eater...

Agree with you totally, also, what does this mean for tackling really? Go high, hit chest height... if the player jumps into you and you get a gut, or baubles full off studs well then...tough...

Rugby is getting a bit ridiculous...
