Wing JP Pietersen's big tackle on Eighthman David Denton

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.

Plays of the week - The incredible Jean, Lions classics and more

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.

Alesana Tuilagi straight red card for high tackle on Jean de Villiers

Ironically, 6 inches lower would have been 6 inches closer to the sternum, a legal tackle and JDV wouldn't be smiling and would possibly not have continued. Play hard and within the rules and it can be to your advantage.

Alesana Tuilagi straight red card for high tackle on Jean de Villiers

What are you saying Matt, that a straight arm is legal? That is what is sounds like. Perhaps you need a course in rugby laws mate!

Alesana Tuilagi straight red card for high tackle on Jean de Villiers

"red card SEEMS harsh because JDV hopped right back up" certainly may appear to be the case to some. For those who agree with that statement, the red card is designed to avoid players having to be stretchered off, so completely justified in this case IMO.

Midweek Madness - Adam Ashley-Cooper's try saving superman double tackle

Actually, Mvovo is an ass for not straightening and leaving space for De Villiers on the outside. Another good reason that Mvovo is not on the bench this week. He has legs and is decent but not of international standard.

Eben Etzebeth banned for attempted headbutt on Nathan Sharpe

I agree with you Pretzel. You gotta admit though that EE made Sharpe wet his pants. If EE really wanted to butt him, he would have. Silly 2 weeks - not sure who is more silly, the commissioner or Bruno!
