Benoit August playacting after James Short lashes out

"funny to read people trying to transform french rugby players as professionals of the soccer simulation. i won't feed this poor debate but just saying: giteau, stringer, quinlan, lee byrne, hartley..."
I wish there was a rugby site gathering statistics about those playactings and kind of stuff.
But one thing: I'm absolutely certain French players do not fake more than others. If something is bullshit, that's it.

It had nothing to do, Aurelien Rougerie got hit to the larynx, he was badly injured, suffered many surgeries and his voice is altered forever.
I don't think August has been injured at all.

Haha, totally agree... The movement looks dirty and the throat is a fragile part, but how can he possibly fall backwards ?!?
It's very deceiving, especially from a guy who's expected to behave as somebody close to the indestructible.

Nick Abendanon crunches Lee Dickson then gets smashed by George Pisi

"And as rugby players are getting bigger, stronger and faster, and then shouldn’t they be able to take a big hit and get up from it?"
I guess I've been considering the question when I was a kid, for at least 10 seconds maybe... yeah, really a big deal...
But dude have you ever wondered why a whale dies out of the sea on its own weight ? Why 70kg weight lifters can lift nearly 3 times their own weight but 100kg weight lifters cannot ? Why 130kg am. football players wear pads all over them and still get injured very badly ? Really, I can easily go on with this list...
We are all made of flesh and bones, even guys weighing 120kg. Getting bigger and faster does not protect you.
And by the way, mass x velocity = momentum, that is real life.

I happen to have played rugby and still play regularly. And I do know how to tackle. You should review the meaning of "obvious", I'm not english but I know it.
You should also learn union rules and watch less american football and more rugby.

Both are not tackles but bumps, which is not legal according to rugby laws.
It's not about deserving or whatever, but if you want to be fair it's a yellow for both Abendanon and Pisi : absolutely not atempt to wrap the arms around the oponent.
I agree it's spectacular but they are not playing bumper cars.

Yes, and we can also see on the replay Pisi holding Abendanon's leg after the tackle when he tries to get up. Not so bad anyway, but I'm just noticing.

Friday Funnies - Romain Poite and other refs take some big knocks

For the last one it seems obvious to me that the Scarlet player went delibaretely toward the ref, which is very frequent and legal.
But it also looks like the Munster player pushed the ref delibaretely. I don't know if it's legal, don't really care actually, but it's quite nasty.

Will Skinner red carded from the bench as Harlequins beat Toulouse

No, only 30 men should touch the ball : those playing, on the field.
Vice and common faults are not comparable to that.

But you're right about patedelievre comments, he might have reffered to the language and not to the English nation.
