Well the spelling pedantry was an after-thought, but yeah, touché.

By the way - what a try!

Beautiful aerial take by Manoa and a sweet offload. Great step and the usual pace and strength by North to finish.

Seems a shame we're debating a bloke's wellbeing when we could be just celebrating a textbook example of how to score from a restart.

PhillNZ, couple points mate:

- In full speed it looks like he just walks over and deliberately kicks a bloke in the head.
- Kicking the ball out of a try-scorers' hands is not part of rugby.
- their heads
- decent

Dai Young: Nathan has gone looking for him to make sure he is okay - he is not that type of person [who would injure someone deliberately]."

Oh well that's all right then! I trust there will be a Twitter apology issued shortly too...

I've had enough of these cheap shots on players in the act of scoring. Which is precisely what this is.

It's become much more prevalent in recent years - players with clearly no chance of preventing the try sliding in with elbows and knees flailing, pretending that they're somehow "trying to hold the ball up". At least that sort of involves using the hands.

You are not allowed to kick the ball out of a player's hands at any time, let alone when he's stretched out on the ground.

Should be at least a penalty even if he hadn't made contact. This type of "reckless" action needs to be eliminated, in my opinion.

Exactly.

I cannot comprehend how people are defending this.
