Michael Lynagh and HSBC Ambassador Jason Robinson react to England's loss

actually grammar would sugget that he wrote your and not you're...which is basically what happened. You're referring to syntax.

Grammar, it's the difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit.

...anyway....back to Rugby...:)

Samoa stun Wales with impressive win at the Millennium Stadium

It was the shoulder but it hardly matters, you his shoulder went in directly to the head, that's dangerous play the same as a high takle is, it runs the risk of a neck injury. You either get under a player to clean them out, or if they're too low you wrap around their backs without the impact and you roll them out of the ruck.
Well played Samoa though, they played the ball well, it's not just about the hits, they have the steps and running lines that make them difficult to defend against, fair play to them.

All Black Adam Thomson's boot on Alasdair Strokosch's head

@Guy I agree with you here, nice gesture by Strockosch (hoping in Karma, I'm guessing it's something he'd do himself :D) but mistake my arse, he could see what he was doing. That said I think the card is enough, he didn't go in with any force, was just a little shove with the foot, (if that makes any sense) to let the big man know he was in a bad position

James Haskell big hit knocks out lock Alistair Hargreaves

...not that I'd agree with him if he didn't have TMO, I just might understand the error as I see it.

James Haskell big hit knocks out lock Alistair Hargreaves

I don't agree with the ref here, especially as he had the benefit of the TMO. Haskell went for a big hit as he's entitled to do, contact was made in a legal area, wrapping was impossible due to the movement of the player being tackled, not due the movement of the tackler...surely that's the difference between foul play and a simple accident of play? I think a penalty is the wrong decision and I can't get my head around the yellow, oh well. Interesting view on the TMO and ref's trusting themselves, in two minds about that one.

Edinburgh's Netani Talei manhandled over his tryline by Munster

Going on current Ulster form I'd say they're in for a hiding!

Arra come on lads, it's not like he punched him, it's been a part of rugby since the dawn of the game, it's all put behind you in the aftermatch pints. It's part of the game and long may it last!

Elvis Vermeulen yellow carded for huge hit on Zee Ngwenya

Hang on a sec, I reckon if Ngwenya had planted his feet it would have hurt more in this case...Elvis was going to clear him out in any case. If he'd had the time to lower himself if might of ended up being high, all you can do in this instance is tense up your torso and get your arms in front of your sternum...which he did.
While we're talking about what he had time to do, notice he pulled his legs up to stay in the air that fraction longer...true pro.
Tough decision in my opinion.

If he had gone for the legs I'd agree with you, but he wrapped perfectly and accompanied the player to the ground...wouldn't call it dangerous in this case.
