Wales edge Scotland in tense Test at Murrayfield

On RugbyDumps video the try is awarded at 79.15

30seconds is incorrect !!

..Law 9B (e) says "The kicker must take the kick within one minute and thirty seconds (ninety seconds) from the time a try has been awarded"

The conversion was awarded at 79.57 on the same video clock.

England come from behind to beat Wales in opening Six Nations clash

The purpose of a dummy runner is to hold/fix/commit players to a potential tackle, in this case the move did exactly that, there is no way that (having committed himself to tackling Easter) the defender (Biggar?) Was going to be able to readjust his position to make a tackle on Vunipola.

As such, he'd bought the dummy, and the ball was moved away from a position that he could ever have successfully defended.

What did not happen, was Biggars attempt to tackle Vunipola actually being blocked off. Dummy lines are run all the time in pro rugby, and 'might've'... or 'possiblys' .... Are mostly replaced with "would've" thinkings when assessing these 'committing the defenders' run line incidents.

To compound in the fact that several phases/tackles then occurred prior to Attwoods try and its a poor retrospective cancellation decision IMO.

Friday Funnies - Prop Adam Jones' audacious drop goal attempt

But the commentators have all misjudged AJ decision to kick, no it wasn't panic, far from it was a kick to nothing for the PK advantage being played..... Cute quick thinking more like.

Cmon, get better chatshitters under the mic !

Great sportsmanship from 19 year old Portuguese 7's player vs Fiji

These developing nations have SO much to learn.

Expect his progression through pro rugby to remove such honesty as he matures!!! Sadly.

PS, .... it looks like the decision of 'throwing the ball away' , was originally called in from the AR.

The Tuilagi and Vunipola brothers talk mums, crossdressers and big hits

Aside from his rugby earnings talent, what's shame that Manu was encouraged away from his home so young.

Any club or school who actively seek out pacific island rugby talent to divert them away from their homeland needs to look in the conscience mirror ( yes it does happen!)

IMHO its a real shame that the Tuilagi brothers play rugby for different countries. ( said as an England fan)

Hard hitting Chris Hala'ufia crunches but then slaps Scott Wilson

For those that don't already know .... Law 10.4(e)

" A player must not tackle (or try to tackle) an opponent above the line of the shoulders even if the tackle starts below the line of the shoulders. A tackle around the opponents head or neck is dangerous play"

Where does the tackle end in this example ?

Ironically had he not then face slapped, and ignited the protestations , WB might not have gone to TMO.

Southland score sensational try after big Willis Halaholo bump off

Another face-on smash resulting in a semi-concussion. Another player commences his drift toward brain damage ( ala Shontayne Hape ) when will this sport learn, or amend the laws to promote/foster different techniques from Ball Carrier and Tackler?

Replies from all the 'tough men' not required!
