Snapp, had to watch it twice myself. Looks like he twists or pulls the Tiggers player's arm. Not nice, hardly along the lines of stamping on delicate parts or gouging though.

I have met Calum Clark and he's a really nice bloke. MAssive overreaction from the lot of you to not even consider that it was an accident. If you're stripping someones arm off the ball you just tug as hard as you can and hold and don't necessarily stop the second the whistle blows.
Don't any of you actually play rugby?
Quote:"Rob has fractured his elbow and he will be out for eight to 12 weeks," said Cockerill.
"We hope it will be looked at by the Rugby Union's disciplinary authority.
"It's a pretty horrendous injury and if Calum Clark is deemed to have done that on purpose by the powers-that-be and found guilty, it's a pretty poor act.
"In my opinion, it is as bad as I have seen on a rugby field.
Quote:from that incident is way beyond my comprehension.stripping someone's arm off the ball
I'm more interested in Grandad's opinion on the matter!!
It wasn't supposed to be a serious comment Kevin. So why don't you give it a rest?
As said above, most of the 32 weeks is in the off season. Should be within season ban
don't forget, he's a nice bloke really....
Quote:Judge Jeff Blackett
Since this is a long sanction it will run continuously through the summer vacation without a break.
Statement from Saints saying that in light of the injury being found to be unintentional, "the club is bound to consider the merits of an appeal".
I would have thought it best to just let it go as quietly as possible
