All things Rugby
Tbf, there's a difference between putting your body on the line compared to your head. But these guys are playing at the highest level and it's a bit rich to be accusing anyone of being gutless from the comfort of our keyboards.redderneck wrote: ↑Sat Sep 12, 2020 9:00 pmAh no Winnie; that's harsh. Kearney Snr was another who was utter dogshit at one on ones unless he was coming across and his oppo was barrelling down the touchline with no thought of altering his line. But watch him under a dropping ball - no shortage of guts. He reminds me a bit of Snr. Maybe it's down to being a pretty tall/big unit and not having quick feet. My own guess is that he's, ahem, hard to teach.Winnie wrote: ↑Sat Sep 12, 2020 8:56 pmHe just doesn’t look like he has the guts for tacklingMr. Very Popular wrote: ↑Sat Sep 12, 2020 8:54 pmredderneck wrote: ↑Sat Sep 12, 2020 8:51 pmAnd shouldn't play at any level higher than club again until he learns. I have come to the conclusion that he might not have the cop to add it to his game, sadly.
Here comes Spartacus.
Got away with it when he was scoring tries, it's unforgivable to have a player lined up and just let him through your elbow.
A good kick doesn’t go close enough to go dead, he had a huge amount of space to kick into.
Yeah, I hope as coaches/players get used to it it improves.
Depends how cynical it pays being when attack gets penalized like that.
I don't blame the refs so much tbh, it's clearly a mandate.
Given the horrific amount of knee injuries from rucks this is probably/hopefully a necessary period of pain to rectify things a bit with the game.
I don't have a pager. Because I'm not ancient.
I dunno, something has to be done to stop players torpedoing into rucks.Duff Paddy wrote: ↑Sat Sep 12, 2020 9:10 pm
7 has become an ACL wasteland the past few years in rugby.
