Very good KidA, you are the gif king.

Might you have one of the Wood hit? I think actually that was the most dangerous one.

I think that's the 2nd one in the montage there. Unless there was another Woods hit.

As I said at the time, if you pretend to have had a head knock, you should be treated as if you did.

I recall Pape doing a similar thing at about the same time. Went down as if pole axed when pushed in the face, then was fine once the player had been red carded.

To avoid any doubt, the Sexton incident was a clear yellow, the Pape a clear red for the offending players.


Pretend to have a head knock?

Are we watching a different GIF? His head hits the ground. You don't have to be concussed to have a sore head, you know?

Sexton does give it loads but he did actually get a bang to the head there.


I'm guessing none of these flowers have ever taken a knock to the head and don't realise there can be a delayed reaction

*edit* I'm not saying sexton definitely isn't faking I'm just saying there is no proof he is

I must admit, I used to love smashing fly halves late, almost never got pinged for it. A shoulder barge like that though, reasonably blatant.

it used to please me greatly seeing some weedy FH step further and further back and start looking a me rather than the ball, hopefully enough that on a cold wet day he'd knock the ball on or slice a kick. I'd then ruffle their hair and say 'bad luck old chap' or similar docile words to that effect.

best of all would be if you'd annoy the FH so much he'd do an ineffectual gay slap at you, and give away a penalty for foul play.

:thumbup:

You don't even need contact to the head to get a concussion. The brain can be tossed about inside (it's kinda just floating in there) and be damaged from whiplash, intense rotation and those who've suffered several concussions are more susceptible.

I had a 14 year old just run into me at training once. Somewhat blindsided and didn't fall. I've had at least three significant concussions, and though this kid made no contact with my head, the jarring action left me with a massive headache for a few days.

- Opinions varying between a red card (no seriously) and Sexton's faking it

no ways, Greystoke - FH's can't fight for shit.
you'd be a step futher back and a step further out, worried about breaking a nail, and giving your 3/4 a shit service. there is a difference between getting hit slightly late, and a cheap shot - I wasn't a cheap shot merchant. actually, even better than hitting the, just after they have passed, is nailing them in possession, especially if you make them knock on.

the FH's who took it well were the ninjas who would take the bumps then 3rd or 4th time around cut inside you and make 50m without blinking.

nopes, o sliver fox - back in the day I had electric pace for a forward, and regularly played in the Centres or wing (think Tom Croft or James Forrester, only less brittle). Zero jinkiness side steps though, hence could get sidestepped way too easily if someone cut back in like a shortarse coward mofo.

Moriarty knew what he was doing on the pitch and has no fvcking clue what he's doing off it judging by those comments

After 4 pages, no one has picked up on why Sexton went down like a lead balloon.

Just look at the exact instant when Moriarty shoulder charges him .... Sextons essentially in mid stride and the leg that is about to support his full body weight is just about to hit the ground ..... in comes Moriarty and hits him full force around the shoulder level ...... leaving an off balance sexton to swing violently down like a pendulum and smack his face off the ground.

Moriarty was a tad unlucky that he caught sexton off balance ...... because otherwise it would just have been a stupid late hit leading to a penno and nothing more.

How anyone can say Sexton milked it, is beyond me ...... the welsh mongs are really laughable at this stage

Was about to post something similar. Moriarty blindsided Sexton during that fraction of a second when a runner's feet are both off the ground. Sexton had nothing to brace against even if he'd been aware it was coming, so down he went like a poleaxed steer. A millisecond earlier or later and Sexton would have kept his feet and probably been awarded a pen at worst.

He's actually far from being a big fanny, and is one of the bravest 10s in the game. I think he has milked things in the past, but I'm fairly sure that he didn't in this case, where he went down instantly and without any drama.

I don't think he says he fakes staying down I think he says he does it. If you think he is actually levitating and not on the ground you have more faith in his super powers than even the most one-eyed of Leinster fanbois.

So we agree, he admits to play staying down to get a penalty, or worse.

Moriarty reminds me somewhat off a young Andy Powell. Just a complete and utter meathead.

Irish too scared to touch this thread now, no thanks to you. They always know when they’re wrong and have over defended something Irish for the sake of it.

What should Moriarty have done? It looked like he was just starting to dip to tackle Sexton when Sexton passed and RM then steps off his left leg to alter his running direction to go with play. He braces his arm\shoulder against the inevitable collision with JS.

I can't see what else he could have done. If JS had held on to the ball RM would undoubtedly have tackled him, so contact was unavoidable in that short frame of time.

No, late shoulder charge. To be a tackle the arms need to wrap. Also blindside.

A very naughty boy, who got what he deserved.
