Munster captain Doug Howlett chops Schalk Brits in two

Browner you do realise that:
"this is the daftest post i've seen since Pretzel was a teenager !" makes absolutely no sense at all...

Comprehension my dear fellow, did you go to school?

w-j-l, thanks for the reply regarding the reasons behind Howletts captaincy. Actually makes a lot of sense when viewed that way. Out of interest how has he "committed to Munster"? Is this just a word of mouth thing or has he actually signed a ridiculously long contract? He seems very happy committed from what I see on RD and he has been producing scorching performances (again from what I see) so it is understandable that he'd stay with them, I was just wondering if there was something else...

Yawn...boring... two hookers disagreeing and then getting on with the game... hardly a nice reaction from "hot headed Hartley" but not exactly citing worthy imo.... looked more like a "get off me"

If you say so browner...

If you think this isn't likely to achieve possession then I suggest you think rationally...

If you are tackled you try to fall on your teams side (facing your own try line), this enables you to place the ball back, leave a gentle hand on it to steady it and it means the opposition has to step OVER you to reach the ball. Now lets say one game you decide to always fall facing the opposition try line, now you are not supposed to roll over, (although sometimes players do) therefore in order for your team to secure the ball you have to effectively place it over your body and behind you,. It is generally more difficult to do with bodies swarming in to retrieve the ball. So if you honestly believe that turning a player does NOT help your team then I doubt you've ever played a decent standard of rugby in your life.

Seems a bit sad that the Munster captain is not an Irishman... Unless Howlett is a temporary captain? I'm not saying he doesn't have what it takes, I just thought that Munster was a massive Irish team and huge contributor to the International side, therefore having an Irish captain would be a good thing? no?

Never thought of him as a Dooogy Howlett haha, always been a Duggy, I wonder if the commentator was thinking "Dougie Hall" or something, he is the only player I think I've heard called "Dooogy".

The tackle, very strong from a winger on a hooker, excellent demonstration on why it can be better to go low, it did however, look a little uncomfortable, sort of head on the wrong side type of hit.

AND, not trying to be too pinickity(?) but upper body hit the ground first and legs were all up in the air, only difference was Howlett didn't appear to "lift"... but surely the old "well, if it was a couple inches more, Brits could have landed on his neck and died" brigade could jump onto this?

Cardiff Blues' Lloyd Williams red carded for alleged dangerous tackle

I don't like these "one inch more" or "nearly was this" or any of those sorts of comments...

Referees are there to judge offences, not potential offences.. I mean, surely we could go into a whole realm of: "This tackle is soooo dangerous, because if he had landed on his neck he might of died instantly, and then having his legs flipped up like that might have sent a loose stud flying which could have hit another player in the eye and blinded him and that player could have been running at full speed and then suddenly being blinded he might have run into another player and clashed heads and that other player may have been knocked unconscious and fallen and bitten the neck of a team mate and ripped open his jugular vein (whilst falling and then swallowing his own tongue and dying from suffocation) and that player could have gushed blood out and another couple players may have swallowed some blood and one of those players might have developed a nasty infection whilst the other one might have developed a taste for blood and then gone on a killing rampage later on in the day ripping open family members, friends, and any stranger that gets too close and drinking their blood, a horrified motorist that witnesses that may have not focussed on the road and ploughed into a school bus which then swerved into a tanker lorry covering all the children in fuel, which might trickle down to a hot exhaust and ignite thus sending flaming children everywhere, one flaming child may have run into a busy material factory igniting all the loose material lying around the place and sending the whole building into a towering inferno, therefore the firebrigade would have to be called out, some of the fire fighters might lose their 70's tache's in the heat whilst veteran "one day away from retirement, wife and 3 kids" firefighter Sam Flamey sacrifices himself to save a puppy caught in the fire..(which later has to be put down as it cannot be rehomed).."

So yeh, Lloyd Williams..lifetime ban!!

....the old boys?? O.o Not that I am an old boy (far from it) but I have had the pleasure, or perhaps the displeasure of playing against some "old boys" and geez, if they weren't aggressive then I don't know what is....

.....pathetic... turns the player so he lands on his teams side with a "not brilliant looking" tackle and he gets red carded...

I vote we change this sport to tag and then invent a new rugby based on the old laws when the ball didn't used to get jammed up in rucks...so on and so forth...moan gripe bitch whine...travesty...hypocrisy...and I really am no longer surprised by this shit...
