It is a puzzle to me that players, who normally conform to conventional tackling, feel motivated to try to knock the heads off English players.
Must be racism.

Yep, I've never seen Liam Williams concede a penalty try for a no-arms tackle.

Good point. I don't recall any cheap shots when he was playing for Sarries. No wonder they got shot of him.

Whoosh Parrot - I'd guess. He cost Wales a win in SA with a shoulder to the head, a hint of sarcasm?

They've had to shoot a few players, haven't they!
Not just thuggery in English rugby, but institutionalised cheating too.

Corruption, Red cards, citings and the little coach waiting for his denouement for his referee slating.

Did he get a red card for that?

Bet he didn't.

It was about 5 years ago.

80 minutes were up, Wales winning by 5 points in South Africa.

Result: yellow card + penalty try and match-winning conversion in front of the posts.
Saffers win.

In 2009 the World Rugby member unions identified integrity, passion, solidarity, discipline and respect as the defining character-building characteristics of rugby. These are now collectively known as the World Rugby values.

Apart from passion, can anyone define which of these are shown by the collective English rugby system?

Well, you certainly show none of that. You're not a true rugby man.

Is it a new record to still be whining about refereeing decisions in a match you won almost a week later? :lol: :lol: :blush: :blush:

We don't wonder or care to be honest, chippies are gonna chip

Front up as someone who has banged on about dangerous tackles do you not agree that the English fans have a point in this case though on those two specific incidents?
I'm talking about tackle Laws, not bitching about refereeing decisions.

I leave that to you English.

Barring an angle actually showing head contact that's fair for Lawes.

Tuilagi is lucky, that's an ugly challenge. Decent disciplinary record in recent years due to inactivity?

Fair enough for Marler.

French prop: erm...

I don't think it's fair enough for Marler. You made the point yourself - this clearly wasn't something malicious or intended to cause pain. They were probably thinking 2 weeks for being silly and 8 weeks to discourage other players from doing similar.

There was a suggestion Ritchie made contact with his eye area, which is what’s meant to have sparked that reaction - looking at the replays, you can see his point!

Assume that’s the end of Marler’s season then - really silly thing to do in hindsight!

As I posted later on in the thread, I went and looked at it again and he had more of a squeeze than I thought. Enough to make it worthy of a ban regardless of the social distaste towards it.
