Three red cards in heated Leicester Tigers vs Bath battle at Welford Road

Fair enough, some good points. With the increased physicality serious injuries need to be avoided I guess...it's a fine line though.
On the spear I'm not sure, I think you're no longer allowed to spin the player anymore, you can lift but you have to wrap and fall with the player so that his shoulders are above his hips at all times.
It's one that I benefit from more than anything being a full-back! ;)
If reds were given for all the times I ducked after taking a high ball and got a clout I would have played against 14 men god knows how many times!

I agree with you, scuffles are part of the game. There's a limit of course but it's always been there in any physical sport.
It's one thing making a decision in the heat of the moment but with a video there's no excuse at all. Isn't the TMO match official a qualified ref?

You reckon Banahan's was intentional then? I don't think he's a dirty player at all, tough yes, but not dirty. A little off the subject but not really, when you think that Hore got to play the whole match against Wales after his cowardly strike this just seems all the more unfair.
Would like to see the elbow to Murphy at this stage!

Murphy's not the type to play act, sometimes when you get a bang it takes a minute for the stars to clear, if you can you take your time, a scuffle was breaking out over his head so he jumped up as quick as he could...at least that's how I saw it.
I have to say I'd agree with Cockerills analysis, a couple of sin bins and away you go. Banahan and Deacon had already started chatting by the time the ref made a decision.

It's a grey area but I see where you're coming from. Red is madness though right? The onus may be on the tackler but as long as it's legal to tackle at chest height you're entitled to go for it, if the player ducks it should be taken into account. Much like accidental offside and professional fouls.

Well luckily for us we have you to intervene and set us all straight, just let me apologise on behalf of everyone for having our own opinions of a game some of us have played for more than 20yrs.
Come on lads, lets not be so stupid from now on, we should ask ourselves "what would Yaheim think in this situation", then we're on the right track.
Thanks again Yaheim, you're a fucking hero!

Wales score bizarre try with thirteen man lineout against the All Blacks

oh fair enough, if it's the winning try I guess you can say it was the winning move...sorry.
I doubt it was a dig though, have to agree with Facepalm on that one

Benny, in my opinion, never were 2 games further from each other and in my experience you don't win a game based on a move but a strategy.
I saw the All Blacks deservedly win their world cup clinging on for dear life to a 1pt lead in a final that saw them overcome numerous vital injuries and a great French performance.
But out of curiosity, what was move???
