Yup. There has to be some empathy with the intent and the situation. That was as good a tackle as you could see there. A year ago, he would have been hailed a hero.


If it's a penalty then it's clearly a yellow and penalty try,

I know what the laws say. They are simply wrong just like any law is when taking absolutely.

What? That was a high tackle 10 years ago, let alone one. Not really sure what all the tears are for.

You were also talking about a swinging arm for a tackle that was quite similar.


If you look at the tackle he could not go any lower .. oh it’s you ..

:lol: :lol:

You're gonna pollute a few rivers with that attitude.

Damien McKenzie is certainly a work in progress. He's going to do some freakishly good things in the 10 jersey this year but he's also going to make some shocking errors as well.

This scoreline doesn't reflect the game. Tough luck Chiefs fans you didn't deserve this margin.


Absolutely. it was a cracking game till the PT, though the Chiefs have not helped themselves since then and the Crusaders have really turned the screws.

Did you watch any rugby in the last 10 years? I defy you to find a single, similar decision before 2017?

Even if you can, I reckon I could find 10x that number where such an action was hailed as "a brilliant, last ditch tackle".

He's an idiot.

the first card was fair but not malicious. Player was falling into it which made it look worse. This one we're arguing over was similar in the dropping player but the tackler started over the shoulder.

Cheifs look to be losing their Mana early this season.damn those injuries don't look too good.
Re: the penalty try. We'll get used to it folks. Long term injuries is not worth the tough couch potato talk.

Final score 45-23.

A 22 point win in a NZ conference derby game is almost unheard of. I am very happy with the result - but that was not a great performance.

If that was a yellow, then how in the hell did Alaalatoa's swinging arm to McKenzie's head not get a red?

Also, why did the tackle on McKenzie late in the first half not get yellow carded? It was clearly high - the ref even played advantage for it.

Fark, been trying to watch this on a really really choppy, intermittent internet access. Almost as frustrating as seeing the 2 interecept tries being given away in the last 5 minutes.

Congrats Saders, was a great finish to that game.

Plenty to be happy about from the Chiefs, given how unknown they were going to be this season, but the amount of errors and injuries isn't something that can be sustained.

It's really weird. The Kiwis especially seem to want to see early retirements and brain injuries.


The tackle was on the shoulder and as low as humanly possible

I’ve got no problem with red cards for forceful initial contact with the head



to stop the try " I was only as off side as I humanly needed to be"

It's a shame because of the pen try and yellow... circumstances pretty much demanded that under the Laws. Tackler made contact at the neck, fercryinoutloud. You can't start a tackle at the neck.

What happened after that decision spoilt things with the score blowing out, for sure.

It blew out in the end but it was a hard fought win - the first and last 20 were good for the crusaders. Very impressed with the Mounga, Crotty and Goodhue midfield. McKenzie had some good runs but was a shit 10.

Very flattering but a win is a win. Picking up a bonus point could be important later on in the NZ conference.

The. Tackler. Did. Not. Make. Contact. At. The. Neck

You’ve moved down from saying it was the head at least. Soon you’ll be at the actual point of contact :o

Chiefs would be a million times better off with Marty at 10, Maori Jesus at 12, and D-Mac at 15.

D-Mac was the best fullback in the comp last year.

Quite an enjoyable game until the penalty try. That tackle happens all the time without the same result. If it was any other player than glass Crotty they would have just got back up and carried on, actually I take that Glass Maori Jesus Ngatai would have stayed down too.

Tana was wrong, it is tiddly winks.

Slow mo showed it didn't start at the neck, initial contact with his arm was to the shoulder.

Yes arguably the defender should have been in better position and would have been more likely to tackle 'legally' but with that quick ball what can you do but make an attempt and hope it comes off?

Like other posters have said, the fact that letting Crotty score instead of going to make the tackle would be less risky is literally the safer option now which makes zero sense.

Māori Jesus is even shaped more like a block busting 12 now also, he’s piled on some pounds

Doesn’t matter, he’s now injured of course
