Absolutely disgraceful. Actions like this warrant the severe suspension, as well as legal action against them. A vicious blow to the head like that can cause life-altering damage and suffering and warrants legal action, regardless of whether it occurred during a match or not.

I take serious issue with that first challenge. There was minimal attempt to wrap, and if you slow the clip down to .25 speed you see Tuilagi's head come into direct contact with Dollmans head side on. The impact head to head could cause serious injury and is very dangerous. I understand the game happens at incredible speed and there may not have been malice intended, however, if World Rugby is trying to minimize head injuries, this is exactly the type of thing thing that needs closer monitoring.

What an absolute class act. He is the best example of what rugby is all about to me. Sharing tough moments with your team and opponents and being candid about it, showing full commitment, and being gracious in victory and defeat. Moreover, he stands up for what matters to him regardless of potential consequence - something many of us could learn from.

Fantastic compilation. Thanks for sharing.
Something that I noticed while watching those clips which surprised me and isn't often discussed when speaking of Lomu's accomplishments and abilities, is just how balanced a runner he was. Yes, he had electrifying pace, strength, and of course size, but he could also step and swerve with ease while at full pace to beat defenders. For a bloke his size, especially in that era was completely unheard of. Pure magic!
Jonah, you left an indelible mark around the world and captured the minds and hearts of everyone that watched you on the pitch. Thank you.
Rest in peace big fella.

Amazing bit of skill on display but the finish looked like a knock-on to my eyes.

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.

As the great Bill McLaren would have said: "Champagne rugby" advertisements! Bravo Guinness.

Great show of skills - great to see that kind of enterprise coming from the Rugby hotbed of Arkansas in middle 'Merica.

It's America - there's a market for anything absurd.
