Dunedin Streaker gets Smashed by Security Guard Number Eight

Could have put the bloke in a wheelchair. Imho that tackle was a tad over the top.

Besides: I like streakers. They're one of the very few nice bits that remain from the amateur days of rugby.

Jebb Sinclair controversially red carded for 'leading with the elbow'

I guess I am one of the few, if not the only one here to think he IS leading with the elbow. Just before impact he pushes his elbow away from his body into the head of the tackler. With such force that the movement of his elbow carries on way after the contact moment.

Not sure if red is the correct decision (not completely at home in the lawboob tbh) but I can see where the TMO and ref are coming from.

Huge hit by Tonga in Pacific Nations Cup draw with Samoa

Actually, this is exactly the kind of tackle I DON'T like. The sole intent of the tackler seems to be to hurt the opposing player. I (and I guess we all) have read quite a few articles on concussions etc. lately so even if this tackle is legal, it's still dangerous.

I've got such big respect for this guy. Got up so many times from such big hits. And never took a step back. Seems like a great caracter!

Is this all the footage the committee had at it's disposal? There doesn't seem to be much in it to me but I guess the law is the law although the explanation of how they came to 3 weeks completely baffles me (low entry, upgrade, excellent

Friday Funnies - Team mate questions with Donncha O'Callaghan

He seems like a properly funny guy with a great and rather behaved sense of humour.

Digby Ioane manhandles Bryan Habana in tense Top 14 clash

Actually, the second tackle IS dangerous. If I follow your philosophy driving through the red light is also not dangerous...unless you cause an accident.

Digby Ioane manhandles Bryan Habana in tense Top 14 clash

He took him down safely in the second tackle. But in all honesty the fate of the player that's being tackled is no longer in the hands of the tackler if you hold someone in this position. So I guess yellow would be correct (in my very humble opinion)
