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 !

Brian O'Driscoll dumped off the ball by Mauro Bergamasco

check again... 10.4 (j) Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player's feet are still off the ground such that the player's head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play.

Law says lifted + upper body = dangerous

Ashton's was poor techinque & reactionary, This bugger was deliberate - De Kock's never dipped of ducked, Matavesi simply took a cheap shot

Top end for me, 10-12 weeks
