Arguably the two blokes I least want to see on the pitch against England in the autumn.

Now that is awesome!
It's not a "don't-argue"; it's a DO *NOT* ARGUE!!!
Three defenders beaten, including one abject humiliation and a VERY sweet try-assisting offload.
By the way, I can remember a number of people including myself going nuts over a Wesley Fofana run a couple of years ago, which featured him switching the ball from one hand to the other and handing off some guy in the face all in one sleek movement. This guy did the same thing even better.

Forgot to put a winking smiley to let people know this comment is made primarily with tongue in cheek. I'm sure you (Dan) will get it, but might not be obvious to the casual observer... ;)

So, we're in agreement that he has used her as a pawn to promote himself as a saint.

Completely unrelated, but I just came across this and thought it should be shared!
@RD - my apologies if you already have plans to post this - maybe just delete this comment if you do!
As impressive as Johnston's running angle and acceleration undoubtedly are, I'm really in awe of the full back taking his life in his hands to make the tackle!

I'd go further than that in that I think it's very harsh singling out this one random tweeter for voicing a reaction that surely everyone else would think if they didn't know the context or background. Especially if she apologised when that was pointed out.
Anyway, I'm not buying all that Auslan/sign language business - he's clearly practising his release-the-ball-carrier-before-contesting-the-ruck gesture. See 1:38 - 1:58 above for the proof.

Agree with most of your analysis but not all of your interpretation.

SDE, that is an interesting point. Can't say I'd ever really considered Folau's role in this, I always just saw North biting off a bit more than he could chew and making a bit of a balls-up of the execution.
So let's have another look:
Of course I'm not limited to your 3 areas of argument, but for convenience I will focus on your second point.
In my view, Folau did *not* lift North - actually the more I watch it the more preposterous that claim is. The whole thing is just down to momentum. Yes North put Folau's feet down first but he's still pumping his legs and pushing forward, with Folau going over. Folau's adding to the momentum because he's still trying to pull himself down to terra firma. It doesn't look to me like Folau has intentionally tried to lift, flip, tip or any similar action. Just an unfortunate result of the momentum generated by North himself.
In this video, perhaps Nathan-Wong is a less reluctant participant and I also think the other tackler helped things by changing the dynamics and shifting the direction of momentum.

That bloke's arm probably weighs more than you do....

Gratuitous and disgusting. Don't know how his barber sleeps at night.
