Tevita Kuridrani receives five week suspension for dangerous tackle

You Pirates Rugby are an apologist for deliberate foul play. I've just travelled back from a premiership match and had a chat on the train with a ex-rugby player in a wheelchair, broken back caused during a match ...... you look him in the eye and tell him that taking someones feet up in the air "without a damn good reason" is justified.

The rugby lawmakers say it's not, officials must do likewise & you me ol pirate must move into modern times, this sport is unrecognisable from the one that our parents played.

The Law is clear, Read Heed Comply or Goodbye.

Rugby Law 10.4[L] requires players to control themselves and not retaliate.

This Law is one of the fundamental requirements to negate the likelyhood of brawls commencing.

Why is it that the best sides in the world rarely brawl, but that the lesser sides & i include Georgia & Romania [& french club rugby in this description] are always at it.

The authorities set the tone, and referees should always always punish the retaliator & REVERSE the PK, because it is this that sends the 'discipline' message to players.

Ignoring the retaliator is 'implied permission' to retaliate without consequence..... no wonder it all kicks off.
