The Rugby Club Test Rugby Plays of the Year for 2012

Yeah this was a rather bland and bare highlights package. They really could of put in a bit more effort into this one. There were far more worthwhile highlights than this 'plays' suggested.

Scott Higginbotham cited twice for knee and head-butt on Richie McCaw

I can't believe he only gets 2 weeks for this when Etsebeth got 2 weeks for a 'mock' headbutt.

Pieter Dixon's red card after TMO recommendation rules kick to face

The citing commissioner found that there wasn't enough evidence of intent to warrent a red card. You can't really judge too much from only one angle. Many people who watched the game on both sides tend to agree it was accidental.

Brodie Retallick issued off-field yellow card for tip tackle on Andries Bekker

I think the 90 degrees bit comes from this part of the law: "player’s feet are still off the ground such that the player’s head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground".

Now it stands to reason that if your feet have been moved past the 90 degrees your upperback/neck/head will be the first to hit the ground.

All Blacks remain unbeaten with strong win over Boks in Soweto

People will call me biased but I don't think it was Strauss's intention to hit Whitelock in the head. It seemed to me like he was try to make a desperate attempt to knock the ball from his hands.

I have taken a look at it a number of times, he is off to the side of the ruck but leaves his feet in it slowing the ball down.

McCaw was getting stamped on because as usual he was not rolling away when he clearly could of moved his feet.

McCaw is good, but only because the refs let him get away with a lot of infringements at ruck time. I'm not at all saying that this caused us to loose the game nor am I saying the ref favoured NZ on the contrary I think he might of given us the rub of the green on most occasions. But the amount of times McCaw either did not roll away, played the ball on the ground or generally just got in the way and was not penalised was astonishing.

That being said the reason we lost was that we decided to play too much running rugby when we should of been slightly more conservative as well as the fact that we did not know how to tackle or organise a defensive line plus for some reason our kicking has become atrocious. We seriously need Monty back as kicking coach.

Bryan Habana hat-trick sinks the wounded Wallabies in Pretoria

"A throw forward occurs when a player throws or passes the ball forward."

Key word/s there are throw/passes forward. You can pass it backwards, but it will still move forwards. Get that through your head. They do not pass it forward, it is passed backwards but momentum moves it forward. It is the passing action that you must look at, not the movement of the ball.
