No Ozinsa you are being silly in believing that a shoulder hitting the ground mm before a head hits the ground is enough to clear a player from a red card. Technicalities dont stop a neck from being broken. Tip tackles need to be punished severely whether you are from Aus NZ or Argentina.
The clear facts show you and many others are all sweet for bell to get off but want others severely punished.
Its childish of you not to see ALL of these tackles for what they are and your monthlong defending of Bell and critique of Gilbert and now Matera is dumb and bias. .

I cant find any sources at all. I presume they would have access to these stats tho.
Fox is ok as is the SR own stats pages but neither refer to Try assists.

The Mo'unga myth and why it shows we deserve better from rugby commentators

You put yourself in that position. BELL…..have another 1. Sadly I feel Im being used to cover a problem. 😂

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

TF there are 2 issues. 1 is that people are treated the same when doing the same crime and the other is the need for foul play to be punished consistently.
So either Bell should be banned or the other 2 should be let off. I want all these tackles banned, but I strongly believe in equality so the way to get equality is for all to be treated the same. for me thats bans for all. You dont believe that.
What would you prefer? Inconsistency or consistency?

I want ALL suspended regardless of the nationality DA so NO its not the same at all is it.

Highlander in the Chiefs game when Gatland scored the commentators said he had his 5th try for the season and he has 9 try assists for the year which is equal 1st.

maybe the judiciary or a refs job?

Yes. Cheers to consistency eh!

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

Carnarvean there is 1 major difference between the Bell tackle and the other 2 and it is the sole reason you and others want him given a red and suspended when you didnt want the same for Bell. Bell is Australian.
You have nothing else.

Yes and the commentators said “That will teach him for trying to milk a penalty” when he went for HIA.

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

I want him out, I want 3 weeks min for first offenders of this type of tackle and I was fine with Gilbert getting 5. Sadly no matter what he gets it wont change the Bell decision.

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

Haha so like the Bell one??????

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

From your comments it appears you are repeating my exact points from the last few weeks. Bell gets off….. 3 YCs for lifting the following week. A lifting red and 5 week suspension the next week and now a yellow again this week.
You have already posted here that it should have been red.

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

Yeah Ive been saying that havnt I……

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

Interesting where the complaining is coming from isnt it. Bell the Aussie…. No its fine…All mitigating all good….
Gilbert the Kiwi and Matera the Argentinian…….. Get rid of them from the game….Ban them forever….
TBH Wigeye Id like to see way more than just my take on it as I dont make these consistently inconsistant decisions…..

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

Bell…..Have a drink…..

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

Jim, Bell got let off so I see no reason why all the complaining here when many doing the complaining were very supportive of Bell getting off.

'The very definition of dangerous': How on earth did Matera escape red when Gilbert got five weeks?

You could even ask how did Gilbert get 5 weeks when Matera and Bell get yellows.

Im 100% confident the players will do their best to win Ozinsa. The result doesnt matter is very different to not caring if you win or lose. Whould you prefer the Tahs lose to a full strength Blues or win against the side named?
The Tahs can rest players for the finals too if they want to.

Its not disrespectful at all. Its logical. No bye in NZ like Aus rugby had due to all the covid rescheduled matches.

yes in 10 years time it wont show who played but the win would be forever in history.
Im still looking forward to the Blues game as the 10 is a guy who just a couple of mths back was in the NZ u20 cricket squad and in and around the black caps.

Bourkos I cant see him doing what Lolesio did. White dominates every play in Canberra. Lolesio doesnt run their backline but TE runs the NSW backline and would cope at test level better than Lolesio IMO.

Not at all Andy. The Tahs will celebrate a win. They wont care if it wasnt the Blues best side and I know that as an ABs supporter if Ireland rest their no 1 side I will celebrate beating them easily. In 20 years time the record wont show that the Blues… or the Irish….. rested players.

TBH Paul its close to a no win for the Tahs. If they win they should have and if they lose why couldnt they beat the Blues reggies…. I think the Tahs will win.

Yes it was the perfect opportunity.
