Jamie Mackintosh off the ball shoulder shot on Richie McCaw

he milked it??? Are you serious? He got straight back up as soon as he could. Have you ever taken one on the chin there fella? Lot's of rugby players have stayed down for less.

I think it was well reffed, good common sense for once.

I think big Mac was going in for a tackle and straightened up when the ball didn't come, didn't exactly "charge" him with his shoulder, just stopped his attempt at tackling. As hard as McCaw may be, if a guy like that went in to shoulder charge with any aggression he(McCaw) wouldn't have played on (in my opinion anyway)

Morgan Parra banned for two weeks for head butt on Rene Ranger

...apart from agreeing with you on the tackle and the proximity to 10mtrs, I'm wondering what the yellow was for? Was it because the legs were deemed above the shoulders on impact? because he'd blown the whistle? Normally tackling within 10mtrs just results in having the ball moved on another 10.

Also how calm was Rene after getting his face tickled by Parra?

Have to agree, I'd say the amount of respect can only increase with games like the one on Sunday...as gutted as I am.
Nice to see the old niggly shite is quietly dying out.

you're forgetting that although the kick was attempted by BoD he wasn't the only one following it up!

not so sure at how random it was, that English back 3 are a tough group to kick to and they cover the pitch expertly, what would normally be a decent clearing kick can quickly become a counter attack.
Ireland had more possession and territory over the game but englands metres gained with the ball in hand was quite impressive.
Would have liked to see Redden in there for the last 20minutes all the same, he's tidier with the ball in hand and can generally get the momentum going.

well looking at it you'd be forgiven for thinking that he could have pulled out but opted to dig the shoulder in. Let's say a card wouldn't have been surprising and given the stakes involved it wasn't exactly a clever option.
