the tackle was high though and therefore yellow.


Which tackle? Sam Cane's arm around the neck area, or the replacement props no arm shoulder charge at the head. Maybe both, or as Luke Pearce saw it, neither.

Grosso has a double skull fracture, but Tuungafasi apologised in a tweet and called him brother, so it's all fine.
Call me cynical, but it's his first tweet since January. Not trying to demonstrate remorse before going before the beak. Of course not.

The match officials should be cited for dereliction of duty.

The All Blacks involved should be cited but I will not hold my breath.

One of these tackles gets a yellow card, the other, a penalty.

one of those should be a red, the other is barely worth mentioning!

Yes. ABs never see red in NZ. It's one of the local rules.

It's not just in New Zealand. the card for SBW against the Lions was their first red card for 50 years!!!!!! 50! Years!

If anyone genuinely believes that no All-Black has done anything deserving of a red card in 50 years then I have a bridge i'd like to sell them!

Has anyone else watched All or Nothing on Amazon Prime....The ABs post RWC and post Lions...concentrating mainly on the Lions tour. Fascinating, but personally I don't think it put a good light on them especially the way it was edited.

Recommended, if only for the SBW sending off whinging in light of the weekend's events.

Here's to the nights I'll never remember with the friends I'll never forget...

The "seatbelt" tackle is one of the most inconsistantly refereed at the moment imho. I agree that as the law currently stands that if the arm is over the shoulder and there is no contact with the head or neck then it should be a penalty only. In the case of French lock this was clearly the case however I see numerous tackles like this in every game go unpunished. If WR are serious about moving the tackle below the shoulder (and the next experiment is below nipple level) then they have to penalise this on a more consistant basis. Players will soon stop!

What also strikes me is the All Black going immediately into "appeal/whinge" mode - never wanted to see this in Rugby Union but now, even the much vaunted "tough" All Blacks are doing it. Shame on you, Ryan Crotty!

The lack of citings for the doubly illegal tackle on Grosso speaks volumes for the fear WR has of upsetting the All Blacks.

Frankly, it stinks.
