Jamie Mackintosh off the ball shoulder shot on Richie McCaw

No Joe, I wasn't comparing the impact, I was showing an example of "milking" a reaction

I disagree completely on the milking aspect. There's no point complaining about bias and then losing all objectivity yourself. Kudos to the man, he got straight back up, shook it off and played on without any complaints.
Want to see milking? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJKZqB6jwRo the smile on Cowens face says it all.

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!
