Well, it looks to me like Bai was on the receiving end of an uppercut to the jaw. Too many of the "handoffs" today are little more than disguised punches.

We had a name for this back when I used to play 20 years ago -- crossing. It resulted in a penalty for obstruction every time the ref caught it. It is a blight on the game to allow the forward wave of runners to intenionally block for the rearward wave, and I wish it would stop. Then again, I also wish that feeding to the second row was halted and that proper rucking were allowed again. Both of those would clean up to two current messiest portions of the game: scrums and the breakdown.

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.

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.
