David Pocock's Turnover Masterclass against the Blues

Some of them are questionable on the wider viewing...but on the last one especially, the replay clearly shows Pocock letting go as the ball-carrier is tackled by the other player.

Owen Farrell kicks England to victory over Ireland in Dublin

There isnt any law that says you have to let a player get to his feet, for some reason a lot of people still play it. Otherwise you could just lie on the floor indefinitely. If a player slipped over when he was carrying the ball, you'd tackle him, the same applies when someone slides to pick it up

CJ Stander scores 80m try vs Glasgow on home debut for Munster

Are you seriously begrudging players the right to celebrate how they want to with their team-mates?? Absolutely ridiculous statement, it has nothing to do with football at all

Sonny Bill Williams puts the shoulder in against the Highlanders

I do agree with some of what you've said, but there's a few things I would add to it.

Be realistic, if somebody offered you more money to do your job, you might well take it. If you could travel the world and have fun doing so, thats also a positive.

Yes this "disloyalty" may leave a bad taste in the mouth, but one of the features of the professional game is that fans often feel (as we effectively pay their wages) that we have a right to control their lives and critique their decisions, but they're his decisions, not ours. They get paid by someone either way, so what gives us the right to complain?

He should still stay in Union though!

Tai Tuifua's dangerous flying tackle on Nicky Robinson

Pause the video as Tuifau shapes up to tackle; at this point his shoulder is level with Robinson's chest and he's just trying to make a big hit, you can see his arms coming round. Robinson is falling as the tackle is made which meant it was high, it was a bit clumsy and nothing more, shit happens

I think its some kicking related injury, or long term problem from lots of kicking so he leaves it to Taylor to avoid stress. But im no kiwi
