Relatively yes. They upped the punishment for accidental contact.

You think elbowing a players leg away is really dirty? Hardly worth a citing.

Toner's action looked clumsy, but it's something they might want to look at.

Love the reaction of the French posters. The French aren't really known for fair play.

Neither are you lot.

And his leg ? Is Biology a sin over there ?

Depends on whether we are married or not.

I don't think Ireland have a reputation as a dirty team. More sinned against than sinning, I believe.

That's the sermon for the day. If you need any more theological advice you will have to wait angel

That would be an ecunemical matter

He has a right to try and jump over a player obstructing entrance to the ruck, hes not exactly agile so made a mess of it

Too many tacklers lay behind the ruck these days Im surprised more don't get clattered and injured
You have a responsibility for player safety no matter what you're allowed to do. You're allowed to kick the ball, but if a player's head is there it's a red.

Is that a new law?
Need an example? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/rugby-union/2016/11/21/england-blow-joe-launchbury-hit-two-week-ban-kicking-will-miss/

Seen them not given. Thug-life Brown got away with kicking Murray on the head, but maybe there's a new directive.

There are also examples where it didn't result in a red or a citing:

That report relates specifically to tackles and happened after the Launchbury citing. No?

That's all about contact with the head during a tackle, unless I missed something.

Yes, apologies. So just jumping on a ruck, trampling and charging into a ruck without binding that he might be guilty of.

Cant see the video at work but sounds very bad or you are exaggerating a lot.

I dont think Toner has ever been cited so the chances are you are exaggerating a lot.

I already said I don't think anything will come of it, but I don't think it's exaggerating to say he could be guilty of any of those offenses.

If you dont think he will be cited why are you making a big deal out of it?

Let them at it, Geoff.

It happens all of us at times - accusations made against our players that we have to listen to and debate our way through. It's all good. Let's hear what people have to say so that we can have our crack at it further down the line.

I'm actually looking forward to the fiery encounter between Ireland and England this year. As much as people may loathe him, Eddie Jones has inspired confidence in the England team and given them a much needed winner's mentality. They used to be spineless and brainless - now he has managed to reduce it to just brainless. With that, he has been able to mould his zombies to win games.

Lancaster suits a team like Leinster a lot more. They like to play with their heads up and inject some pace in the game.

Toner could be in trouble too.


French player on the ground makes contact with Toner whose in the air... should have been a penalty to Ireland.... thankfully Toner didn't pass the horizontal and land on his neck or shoulders or it could have been serious. The french lad probably won't need to be cited for that bit of reckless play Whistle

Best one I read on here was someone comparing Best (0 days of bans) with Ashton (over 6 months) and Hartley (over 1 year)
you couldn't make it up

Tumbleweed

I could just look it up myself, but I thought I would try and keep this thread going just a little longer.

Any injuries from saturday we should be worried about?

Any chance we might see Payne back in for Wales?

Adam Byrne and Gilroy should be brought in as a surprise to stir up expectations of what Ireland will bring.


*waking from a pleasant dream of a fantasy Ireland* Oh sorry. Rabid woke me up suddenly. Where were we? Oh yes, phase play and see sawing.
