Steven Shingler red carded for spear tackle against Cardiff Blues

Like it was said in the world cup it is a collision sport not a contact sport. The responsibility of the tackler should be lost when the ball carrier starts twist. Really at that speed they want you to control someone who is purposely trying to move and twist. clearly none of the guys writing the rules today have played for awhile

2003 RWC winner Martin Johnson resigns as England rugby coach

fwell free to burst into song, the welsh rugby support have something to be proud of. But i do think it is thecase, rugby directors keep referring to it as a business not a sport, so if the English RFU are a business, then would anyone want to work for them, don't think so. they couldn't organise a piss-up in abrewery at the moment

2003 RWC winner Martin Johnson resigns as England rugby coach

MJ was the first coach to win the six nations, win at cardif and dublin and beat Australia away since Woodward. Yet we have let him go, but can you blame him after the way the RFU treated Tindall. Everyone went on about other coaches before MJ was appointed and similar names are coming up now. Yet two of the top four coaches have already ruled themselves out, the northampton coach is tied up in a contract and I doubt henry would want to come to england after the all black. The truth is if we found it hard to secure a top coach before then now it will be close to impossible. No RFU chairman, No captain (only one player in the current squad I think is a captain at club level) who would want to come and be part of that mess.

2003 RWC winner Martin Johnson resigns as England rugby coach

That's so true, the whole situation is my worse by the fact that we should be this bad. We might not end up being the best in the world but we have the resources to be better than we are.

I think the only decision the RFU has ever made is to look down at their feet and decide which one to shoot

2003 RWC winner Martin Johnson resigns as England rugby coach

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/rugby_union/15766972.stm

This is a link to his leaving interview. Interesting that Rob Andrews sits there saying Martin did a good job, so maybe he wouldn't have been sacked. So he didn't want to stay which say alot about the state of English rugby. Then the joke is two of the coaches that the RFU are considering have ruled themselves out. The Northampton coach is tied up in a contract and I doubt Henry would want to leave the All Black for England. So we have lost a coach with really no great coaches in mind. And whilst England RFU have been arguing like little girls point finger Edwards has resigned with Wales. If the way we played in the world cup was disappointing, then the way the RFU is acting completely over shadows it.

2003 RWC winner Martin Johnson resigns as England rugby coach

English rugby is a joke at the moment, must point out I am English before people start anything. The RFU are still without a Chairman, there is no captain as Moody has retired and Tindall was booted out for no good reason. And now we don't have a head coach. We are starting completely from scratch, which the optimists will say is great, but the reality is there are now so many opportunities for mistakes/problems. Three new important people will be selected in English rugby, three points of view, relationships, all at the moment are unknowns. If Johnson had stayed and Woodward had been persuaded to return its would start to look good and they already have a strong relationship from the past. I did like Jeremy Guscots idea of trying to get Darren Lockyer in as one of the assistant coaches.

Mike Tindall sacked and fined by the Rugby Football Union

Its a joke, the RFU are trying to look professional after being a mess for the last year, how long does it take to appoint a chairman? Carling got in trouble for calling them all old farts and little has changed. Shows there true character when they will use a player like Tindall as an escape goat and hang him out to dry like this. Iwasn't ashamed to call myself english after the world cup, just disappointed. But after this mess that has been caused by the media and the RFU reaction I am now ashamed.
