John Ulugia of the New South Wales Waratahs received a yellow card and a trip to the sin bin after sizing up and destroying opponent Rod Davies in a recent game. NSW coach Michael Cheika was not impressed with the call. From News.com.au:
“But I think everyone saw he put his arms around him. I don’t know whether they should have had a kiss or not while they were in there.
“It’s a shame because hardness is going out of the game.
“There’s nothing illegal about it. It’s a good, hard tackle and that’s what we try to get guys to do at training.
“Then in a game, as soon as someone puts in a good shot on, everyone panics. Like, give him the sin bin.
“I don’t know, touch footy next year maybe.”
Touch footy. Freakin’ Goodell, man.
