Elliot Daly suspended for 3 weeks after red card for dangerous challenge

Here's how I think it will go down:
Me: I'm off to Edinburgh next weekend to have some beers with strangers I met on the internet.
Mrs Stroudos: What? Don't be ridiculous. Anyway we're going to my parents', you know that, it's been in the diary for ages.
Me: Oh yeah. But... but, these people are my friends!!
Mrs Stroudos: What are you talking about? I've never even heard of Rugbydump. Show me!
*Shows the at-least-daily slew of ill-informed commentary posted over the past several years*
Mrs Stroudos: Ah! You sad wanker. For a while I thought you were having an affair with all that bloody tapping away on your phone and grinning! Actually, I might have preferred that.

Agree Jimmy.

Must say my own preference is to stop chasing a few steps before reaching the catcher, patiently wait for him to land and then accelerate those last few steps and smash the hapless prick around his exposed midriff. Worse-case scenario is he offloads very quickly and you get done for a late tackle, (usually not, on grounds of "already committed"), but that's got to be a better option than risking a yellow or red card for taking the man in the air.

"I think it was Jared Payne vs Good maybe?" he says. Maybe?? This has been your go-to case study in arse-to-face combat ever since. I'm not sure a "taking the man out in the air" incident has made it through a Rugbydump post without you drawing some parallel with Goode's use of his arse as a lethal weapon. :) In fairness, it does illustrate your point well.

Best tries from the Top 14 - Round 12

Lovely stuff. Not my words, but those of Shakin' Stevens.

Flashback to Tedo Zibzibadze's smashing tackle on Max Evans in 2011

Wonderful stuff. Equally impressed Evans managed to hold onto the ball!

Also, Tedo Zibzibadze has to be the coolest-sounding name in rugby since Joe Rokocoko.

What I found particularly galling about the Hawkins incident was that he deliberately - yes, disciplinary officer - deliberately, sought to injure a hooker's throwing arm! I mean, it's like kick a porn star in the plums just before he goes on set...

Don't know for a fact Dan, but I hope that tache is a Movember effort.
But it does make him look more accurately like the tosser that he undoubtedly is.

DrG, He is a recidivist and a cheapshot scumbag. He's also a sneaky coward.

The worst kind of violent offender - breaking a bloke's arm while he's prone on the ground unable to defend himself; launching himself here at a bloke on the ground who's rolling away and unable to defend himself.

Should have been banned for life for the arm-break and three weeks for this is also absurdly lenient.
