Hard hitting number eight Chris Hala'ufia takes out streaker with big tackle

As far as I'm concerned his actions (the head slam) were absolutely deserving of a red card. That kind of behaviour has absolutely no place in our game and only seeks to undermine the foundation of the game; respect. I also think the subsequent suspension is warranted, if even a bit too lenient.

Stephen Ferris returns to rugby with trademark powerful tackle

One of THE BEST rugby vids posted on RD for a while! The electricity of the crowd and the nervous excitement of Ferris were all too apparent. Nevermind the brilliant driving tackle...

Ben Tameifuna and Jamie Mackintosh banned for old school rucking

Guy,

While I've always supported proper rucking, in its current incarnation and past forms, both of the above acts were dangerous and could have seriously injured the receiving players. It does not take much to break ribs, or damage internal organs - especially not when a 130kg prop is putting the hoof down.

Midweek Madness - James So'oialo and the odd shaped balls

The strapping on So'oialo's hands certainly did assist in his handling during the game as seen in this clip. It's truly shameful that he wasn't punished for his reach-around on Strauss.

James Haskell big hit knocks out lock Alistair Hargreaves

Have to say that although Haskell may not have intended injury his actions were dangerous and could have seriously injured his opposing player. What he did was not tackle the man, but rather hit him straight in the head. I think a penalty and a yellow were even warranted. Before you critics start to say I prefer soft rugby, I disagree entirely. I love hard-nosed and extremely physical rugby, but as someone who has received countless headshots like the one delivered on Hargreaves I would like to see them eliminated from the game.
