Professional rugby becoming unsafe to play…

Once again the All Blacks have moved the bar upwards, with apparently few people in Northern Hemisphere rugby noticing. Certainly not Sir Clive Woodward. But one of the dismaying aspects of this trip has been the Kiwi silence on the two man tackle (car crash) on Brian O’Driscoll in the opening match. Tom McGurk believes that professional Rugby is moving well beyond the bounds of safe play.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
