Paul O'Connell knocks out Dave Kearney with clumsy kick to the head

This is the problem with comment on an incident like this. You clearly don't know the rules and maybe you haven't ever played the game.

D Kearney is NOT CLEARLY IN POSESSION of the ball because (1) he is on the ground and it is illegal for him to be is posession of the ball and (2) it is free play - no ruck formed. He is entitled to place his hand on the ball but not to impede any other player from taking it or playing it. O'Connell makes contact with the ball with his toe to and connects with Kearneys head with his chin. Citing commissioner saw it that way also. None of this would have arisen if a yellow card was given which is all it was. No citing because it wasn't a red card offence. Fellas throwing the knickers off themselves because an injury was received to the head doesn't help.

Troll all you like. But before you do, PLEASE educate yourself because you clearly do not know what you're talking about. Paying for a ticket doesn't entitle you to troll or shout down anybody. Actual knowledge of the game does.
