6 nations and the new tackle law

Post by carpet baboon on Thu 19 Jan 2017, 11:05 am

Right just a bit of light entertainment.

Predict how many red cards in total will be issued during the tournament for high tackles.
Extra points if you can name which games they will come from.

The prize is the knowledge that you can accurately predict a pretty arbitrary and random outcome based on different refs Interpretation of the laws.


I'm gonna say 4

Ireland v Wales there is bound to be one as adopted Welshman Barnes gets an Ireland v Wales game for the 100th time. Why does Barnes get every Ireland v Wales game? Something dodgy going on there.
Italy will definitely get 1 because they cant win.
One of Dylan Hartley, Mike Brown or Owen Farrell will get one.

Gonna say 2 reds and 10 yellow cards for high tackle.
England-France and Scotland-ireland to be the main suppliers of the above.

Not sure on how many there will be, but guaranteed there is going to be a host of cards in the Scotland vs Wales game.  Most likely when Scotland are on top, looking like we might actually win, then Hoggy, Finn, pretty much any Scottish player who up till that point is having a good game will be sin binned or sent off.  At which point Wales will play like a cross between the harlem globe trotters and the all blacks and pummel us.

It's generally how these games have gone in recent years. Smile  Whistle
