Completely agree with you on this tip tackle DanKnapp, unlike the Habana incident (which would have been a penalty had he milked it or not). Lift and tip are too dangerous to go unchecked. And hey, I don't need to incite an insult from you this time either.
Jeeez, looks like a bunch of pansies are watching the game these days and have it in for one of the most proven players of his time. Habana is fantastic. Sure he milked it, and has milked it before. That is not uncommon when great players are targeted. I too wish Habana cut out this BS. But lets face it, Farrell was a tool and it is not the first time. There was no need to block Habana in any way. The action deserved a penalty whether Habana milked it or not. Glad that Habana has been raked over the coals for his action, and hope he learns from it. The trouble is that Habana has been taken out plenty of times without getting awarded a penalty so perhaps feels the need to milk it to legitimately get a penalty awarded. »
I couldn't agree more. It was an awesome tackle, JP was proud and wanted to send a message. Hell, looks like he may have been responding to an earlier message by Denton. A little face rub is simply the cherry on the sundae. Denton was effectively humiliated by JP in that tackle and knew it, which was why he didn't respond. JP got the better of him and handbags weren't going to accomplish anything.
Jay, you must be on acid. How does a player who struggled to keep up with the play lead the tackle stats? He must be some kind of octopus. Watch the tape buddy, BOD tackled his man and Davies missed his to let the try in.
