Do as I say...

Yet more preaching from the right Reverend Graham Henry as he condemned Springbok tactics last weekend:

"There's nothing worse than getting clobbered off the ball when you're not expecting it. That's the worst thing that can happen in rugby. They're called cheap shots...

"I hope officials are well aware of it going into the future of the game as we go on through the World Cup."

Contrast the above with Henry's failure to censure his own players during his tenure. I'm sure the irony is not lost on a certain Brian O'Driscoll...

Did you see the most recent footage of the spear tackle?

If you're referring to the amateaur video footage then yes, I did see it - and it's pretty damning. How the touch judge didn't see it and how the citing officer didn't act is just beyond me. O'Driscoll's career and health could have been damaged beyond repair and to hear that hypocrite Henry spouting off about dangerous play just makes my blood boil.
