Wing JP Pietersen's big tackle on Eighthman David Denton

if we as a rugby community allow this to build up, we'll turn into gridiron or rugby league... eventually standing over players and sledging while they're out cold from concussion.

in the old days, players like JPP would be self-policed -- a good stamping at the next ruck comes to mind

but with professionalism, the only way to stamp this out is with fines or sanctions.

Well, if he did this to Dan Carter, the Citing Commissioner would have already issued a 1 match suspension.

Just seems to be endemic in certain teams and certain nations. Funny how JdV is a class act 99.999999% of the time, but several of his teammates live for this junk.

I was being facetious about the Bismarck hit. Apologies for the attempted online sarcasm.

Amazing kickoff as strong winds blow ball back over the dead ball line

In general, the receiving team woulod have preferred to accept the outcome as if it were general play -- i.e. carried into in goal by the kicking team. Scrum 5m to the receiving team.

Funny how the nuances of Law 13 (if the ball doesn't travel 10m, the only choices are to play the ball, re-kick, or scrum at midfield) gave the recieving team a sub-optimal scrum location.

Rugby HQ's Plays of the Year for Test Rugby in 2013

MDB22 -- it's more about the fact that Fox Sports doesn't show highlights of content they don't own.

As the November tests are played up north, the broadcast rights belong to those countries.

Thus in Fox Sports's world, those games never did / will happen.

Rugby HQ's Plays of the Year for Test Rugby in 2013

Might as well just call this "Plays of the SANZAR and June Tours"

Fox posts nothing from the NH / 6N comps.. I guess because they don't own the rights to them.

and I guess "the year" is over for them because the November tour broadcast rights are owned by the NH countries.

Couldn't even wait for Bledisloe #3 either...
