Thanks for looking into it. I've wondered if it was a geofence of some sort the way that Australian sites limit video to Aussies only. But then the highlights were all over YouTube, so who knows.

I always see the same thing, which is weird given that the 6 Nations folks put together multiple highlight packages for each game now.

You have a weird definition of offside given that Heaslip was the tackler.

"Spiritually, it's battering"
What a great quote!

It appeared to me that he was slow to get up after the Cooper tackle because of a cramp in his leg. You can see him limping afterwards as well.

Absolutely, it does.

On the Lions try, I think that the TMO got it right. Granted, we don't have very good replays to judge from compared to what the TMO worked with, but it looked to me like the ball actually came off the Lions' player's foot and was subsequently grounded by another Lions player. Weird but definitely a try.
Oh, and I would have given a penalty try for the high tackle alone, so they got it right either way.

You know, if everyone that you play provokes you, then you might want to start looking at the common denominator. I'll give you a hint, it's you.

All that I know is that back when rucking was allowed and encouraged, there was no such thing as "breakdown battles". The ball came out after the tackle straight away. One way or another, the ball came out. And then the game flowed on.

Well, I don't know if I'd go so far as to call it an injustice, but it would probably suck. For the other teams ;-)
Listen, in all forms of rugby, speed helps. A lot. Certainly in 15s, there's more place for technical skills and size to play a part; especially, as you move closer to the scrum. But speed still helps and can be the final criteria used to determine who makes the match day squad and who doesn't.
Let us speak as men for moment and admit that there's no place for slow(er) guys in the 7s game. There just isn't. It was created especially for the speedy little ones to have a chance at the ball. So, "using fast players" is a feature, not a bug when filling the roster on a 7s squad. Any coach not accepting that will watch in despair as the tries rain down as their opponents "run sideways" for 14 minutes.
