Tackling Problems

rugby tackle

With not much happening on the rugby front at the moment I’ve sorted out a video of some tackles that didn’t quite go as planned –

It comes as a bit of a surprise that the spear tackle on BOD in the first Lions test in 2005 didn’t make the list as it should have been number one! It didn’t even get a yellow card much less the deserved 2 x reds.

(it’s at about 1 minute 36). Today it would have been referred to the TMO – NZ had won the ball so BOD was nowhere near it! On a lighter problematic note, Rich & I saw the World Cup final last night and only discovered later that Lell & Terry had watched TOWIE in the other room.


Terry had never seen it and had a very disturbed night and had to take extra pain killers this morning – serves her right. Okay, enough – I’m off to play with the grandchildren!

About the Author:

Shutey is a sixty something former rugby player whose obsession with the game far exceeds his playing ability in the years 1959 to 2001. His blog (www.rugbyoldbloke.wordpress.com) details his journey from being completely unknown into total rugby obscurity. His writing varies from the serious subjects to the (very) tongue in cheek but can always be relied upon to be generally illiterate and coarse. Much like the way he played.
