That ship may have sailed Yoyo. Did he cause an injury? Did Mako get cited?
Would be an injustice is all I'm saying. (of course I may be slightly biased)

That is the exact same as the one Vunipola did. If anything Taylor makes more contact.

There is a huge prevalence nowadays for contact with the leading arm down by the body (with contact then made either with the shoulder or upper arm - it needs to be f**king stamped out sharpish

I believe SOB goes in to dislodge the ball. HE isn't aiming for Naholo's head but Naholo gets driven forward as Sean swings and he hits him. So there's no great intent there at all.

That said, he should get a ban because:
1) you can't sanction only intent, you have to sanction outcome
2) Naholo head moved toward Sean, in my view causing the impact but Sean chose to swing his arm in there and he has to accept that he didn't have to
3) The citing commissioner isn't going to want to be seen as having been wrong in calling it a red card offence and the panel will only overturn him if it's a complete cockup by him, which this isn't.

What's good for the goose is good for the Tank. Harsh but fair.

I can see both sides. Think he's more likely to get a week or two and if so, so be it. Three Kiwis should have got the same for worse incidents during the Dublin game a few months ago. That's the annoying bit.
So:
- consistency with recent decisions, budy muchanics, hud clash etc: 0 weeks
- consistency with player welfare and long-term player health, good of the game: 2 weeks
Rules were changed afterwards...only 1 of the Kiwi 'tackles' in that game should have been a red by the rules at the time (Fekitoa).

The kiwis clearly went out to identify a potential issue with player safety by trying to decapitate a player every time they could. And they succeeded in getting the rules changed.

Yeah i always thought he was more of a cross bow man. He likes to inflict maximum damage from minimum range

I heard SOB is on the run driving down highway 55 in a white Ford Bronco with a stream of PR forum nutters on his tail.

Don't think it matters what he did after - it's a fair complaint that Taylor wasn't penalised for a late shoulder charge. But refs miss stuff, such is life. He was aggravatingly consistent so I can forgive him this one bit of inconsistency.

It will run one way or other. Serious potential to even bring the French in if the time gets bumped up because of SOB's prior ban for Pape.

I don't think the directive could really be considered a rule change. More of a clarification of a rule, which wasn't in fact a clarification if you read it:
Reckless Tackle
A player is deemed to have made reckless contact during a tackle or attempted tackle or during other phases of the game if in making contact, the player knew or should have known that there was a risk of making contact with the head of an opponent, but did so anyway. This sanction applies even if the tackle starts below the line of the shoulders. This type of contact also applies to grabbing and rolling/ twisting around the head/ neck area even if the contact starts below the line of the shoulders.

Minimum sanction: Yellow card

Maximum sanction: Red card
clear as mud

This is just his regular Carlow accent and Carlow ain't posh.

Sound posh to you? You must be from a right backward place if this is posh.

there are patches where he falls off it, but I reckon he's definitely going for his telephone voice in most of that. also in the one with Sky's interviewer.

Are you saying he should have faked injury like Barrett did ?
