Re: The one handed throw away after scoring

I also agree with it not bothering me as long as not before scoring and not being a cock to the opposition. That said I thought Delguy's was the coolest try of the year and his pre-try celebration seemed spontaneous after a massive fend which pushed him into 6m strides to go over the line. :thumbup:...

Re: TRI-NATIONS 2020 R6: Wallabies v Pumas MATCH THREAD: Dec 5, 08:45 GMT

Isn't what Tuitupou did to fake the pick and go ilegal? Didn't make any difference but I haven't seen that called for so long, seemed strange to see it. Baulking on lineout, yes Ruck, no. Scrumhalves do it a lot. Gregan anyone? You haven't been able to dummy or fake from a ruck, scrum or maul for y...

Re: TRI-NATIONS 2020 R6: Wallabies v Pumas MATCH THREAD: Dec 5, 08:45 GMT

That card was a joke, how are you supposed to clean someone out in that position without making contact with the head? You'd have to come in from the side, which is illegal. Sanchez milked it nicely, Hooper's speed made it a little reckless but I thought his technique and entrance were pretty text b...

Commentators are convinced they won't beat us with penalties but that's a massive lead now in the context of the game. We aren't looking close to scoring a try, can't hold the ball for 3 phases.

Actually agree with Marshall there - if you're gonna card cynical offences like Scott Barrett's, that should be a card also. Not sure what Gus called there, he said the player hadn't changed his bind so he was fine in terms of the maul, then Smith took the ball out of the maul and he ripped the bal...

As a side I'm still quite surprised that so many commentators and pundits seem to have no idea about the rulings on contact to the head and cards in general. They just seem to make up their own criteria like the last night they watched was in 1996. Baffling. If I hear Marshall talk about Malice or i...

Such messy game and all a bit 'meh' to watch to be honest. All Blacks went to sleep after going up by four then just basically watched as Oz came back and went 9 up with 3 to go. Then all of a sudden they wake up, play accurate direct rugby and score. It's an attitude thing and I agree it's straight...

That looked more yellow to me. Without the Ofa red that's a yellow. Grazes the face as contact is made with upper body but didn't bare the brunt of the hit.
