Post Gethin Jenkins injury vs Dragons
Look what your overly strict tackle laws are doing, if you're crouched down you can't move and therefore adapt your position quickly or very well, causing head injuries to the tackler. It's dangerous down there quite often.

Also penalise the tackler for crouching/squatting when going into contact, should have to stay upright, if the tackler is low, then a "high" tackle should not be given if touched above the neck.

In the second paragraph , obviously should say attacker, not tackler.

I think either is ok. The only grammatical error that I see is that there should be a comma after Also.

And, in your correction, it should read:

Oh! and there shouldn't be a comma after upright.

Here endeth the lesson. :D :D :D :D :D

No, not necessarily. The only grammatical errors in this post are in bold above. :scratch:

Anyway, don't you think that the edict from the IRB last yr was over the top, and has caused more concussions not less, obviously all of them seemingly to the tackler. As you know nothing was actually changed to the rule book, and we all agree, I think, that what Fekitoa did vs Ireland should have received a harsher penalty.

If there were less ppl on the paddock, aerobic capacity would have to go up, so the average weight of players I bet would come down. Hopefully they would be doing less weight training too, well certainly lifting lighter weights. So that brings me to the scrum and line-out; get rid of both of them, go to 12-a-side and a 68m wide pitch; so Wembley, Liberty Stadium and Manchester City Stadium would be full width then.

There is such a thing as 10s and there is 7s and a different game with 13 a side called Rugby League.
