Jamie Mackintosh off the ball shoulder shot on Richie McCaw

I think we had a very similar discussion on the video of Ben Tameifuna's big hit on George Smith in last years super 15 final. My opinion is that if you put yourself there to commit a defender to the tackle, then you've made your bed, don't complain if it hurts

I don't see anything wrong with the tackle. He didn't have the ball, and that's an issue, but his tackle is low enough. The only reason there is contact with McCaw's head is because he wasn't ready for the tackle and his neck capitulated. It definitely is not a shoulder charge. We've had the 'wrapping' debate before, and he clearly has arms around both sides of McCaw, he's just pulled out of the tackle so doesn't drive through with the finish.
Great hit, poor timing (/deliberate) and well reffed.

McCaw had nothing to do with Du Plessis, what are you on about?

Policeman tackles suspected criminal off bicycle

Even if he didn't solve any problems, I still have a lot of time for people who are willing to throw themselves into a dangerous situation in order to help the right cause.

Maybe should work on his execution though

Morgan Parra banned for two weeks for head butt on Rene Ranger

If the rules are now to give a yellow every time someone isn't 10 then we should be seeing a lot more players enjoying a break

Massive try saving hit by Israel's Yonatan Kaplan vs Gibraltar

"Everyone hates spain" but let's make them Spanish! If you love international law so much then stop trying to subjugate people to your government

It wasn't invaded. It was given away by Spain. Live with your decisions like adults. We don't want to be spanish

England hold on after tense battle with Ireland at Twickenham

Personally I'd leave Tuilagi on the bench when he's back. I can't imagine anything worse at the 60 minute mark than looking up to see the giant Burrell trotting off, only to be replaced by a fresh, and even larger, Tuilagi.

The Best Tries scored in Round 2 of Super Rugby 2014

Possibly, but even with all it's pace and skill, I still can't get as excited about a super game as I can about a 6N weekend

Wow I've missed this.
A 6 Nations, tight five, scrum wrestle in the mud will always be my first choice to watch, but the SH is entertaining
