Taniela Tupou escapes red card for brutal no arms tackle

Oh, I get what you're saying. Yes, I suppose that is possible. But unlikely.

Taniela Tupou escapes red card for brutal no arms tackle

Really? This is easily the worst tackle I've seen this year. You cannot possibly suggest it was only a yellow, even with only one camera angle.

UPDATE: Sanzaar has concluded that the tackle was not a red card offense. Off field yellow only, apparently. What a joke.

Even Ma'a Nonu winced when he saw it.

Disgusting tackle. And while it might have been his worst of the game, it certainly wasn't his only illegal tackle.

Bismarck du Plessis slaps Florian Fritz repeatedly but stays on the field

That, my friend, is precisely what I'm suggesting. As my people say: As jy nie wil hoor nie, dan moet jy voel. (If you don't want to listen then you must feel)

Screw that. You slap till he lets go. Never mind permissible, that should be compulsory.

For once I would like to see a bold referee drag this game back from the land of fairies, daisies and unicorns and actually penalise the idiot who tried to spoil the contest with the original transgression. And then address both captains saying he won't protect their players if they choose to hold the opposition back at rucks, mauls and line-outs. Wouldn't that be a breath of fresh air?

Castres hooker in trouble after strike is met with theatrical dive

But hey, if the ICC saw it fit to dock Kagiso Rabada three demerit points for his "shoulder contact" on Steve Smith (and thank god sanity prevailed and it was overturned), then this shot here could probably be considered life threatening.

The shoulder hit by the prop isn't anywhere near legal.
