Jerome Porical knocks out home town club Perpignan with great display

Last week my son hit the other post & the crossbar for a kick that went over, granted he was only 26m out, but this has made us smile.....

On a seperate note, modern materials & more powerful kickers - when will we see a kick attempted from their own 22m line?

Tim Nanai-Williams great try saving tackle on Cobus Reinach

Repuations come because of actions not because of fantasy !! Bok's giving cheap shots is so prevalent, we wonder at what age it's coached in U7 ?

Jonny Wilkinson seals Man of the Match performance with trademark drop goal

So do I, thats why Gougers, high hitting tacklers Biters, & limb bend/breakers should be removed from the sport.

Be Physically very hard, but always be fair.

Rugby HQ's Top 5 Set Piece Tries of all time

Eh....you what !!!!

If Dawson played for Lions 1977 & then for England in the 2003 World Cup Final then i'd forgive Campese for his deliberate knock on in 1991 WCF !

Josh Matavesi banned for brutal high tackle on Neil De Kock

Then you will have seen his tackling style get gradually higher & higher as he's become more & more professional - along with everyone around him.

The Tackling Laws have evolved "since professionalism" to make tackling low a pointless execise [save for last ditch]

Nowadays the only way to win possession seems to be to dislodge it with a big hit, Psuedo RL style, it's confrontational / brutal but has very little skill involved [other than timing] & I for one am turned off by this development in this code.

In order to protect themselves & absorb such impacts players are wearing increasing greater amounts of padding, strapping & protection & i wonder where we are headed.

Ben Youngs' 80m try vs Bath voted Aviva Premiership Try of the Week

Croft - Tackler has 15.4[c] rights to the ball.
Agulla - doesn't join the ruck legally 16.2[b]
Flood - you're correct he's not supporting his body weight 15.6[a] but it's such a fraction of a second that he gets away with it.

What was the full back doing, to be run around like that !
