Illegal Tackle[edit]

Not an illegal tackle see tackle was fair —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:15, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

That's not illegal? You are joking. It's high and there is no attempt to get both arms around the player.GordyB 15:59, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Have you watched the link his arm go around the player and it is in no way high, besides that the referee on the field didn't call him for it. The commentary actually say it is totally legal —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:18, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I have.GordyB 13:28, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

So you now agrre the tackle was legal as the page currently states "Lima legally "dump-tackled" (no arms) Hougaard, sending him crashing to the ground and dazing him for at least 5 to 10 minutes"

I suggest removing the legally and the no arms part so it reads "Lima "dump-tackled" Hougaard, sending him crashing to the ground and dazing him for at least 5 to 10 minutes"

Not sure I agree it was a dump tackle but I would be happy with the above compromise

I don't agree that it was legal but I will accept the proposed compromise.GordyB 16:24, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Not sure how you can argue it wasn't legal see this link for a clear view The referee and the commentary both think it was legal so you have no basis to argue. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:35, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

The ref and commentators aren't the be-all and end-all of the matter. Referees make mistakes and commentators opinions are worth no more than anybody else's.GordyB 16:38, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Reading the Wiki policy yesterday it is now my understanding that your opinion does not matter so unless you can get a verifiable source to state that the tackle was illegal this is a pointless argument. Besides this you are wrong the tackle was fair.

Watch this space.GordyB 11:01, 25 September 2007 (UTC)


He was ironically forced off the field in a daze, just 3 minutes after taking the field, after one of his trademark late, high-and-no-arms hits on Andre Pretorius (replacement flyhalf) backfired

What is the source for this being his trademark if you can provide a source I will change to eliminate POV. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:09, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

He is nicknamed the "chiropractor" for a reason.GordyB 11:02, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Source, or I will change it as it is POV. According to source,,11003-2007430219,00.html the nickname is for "the way his tackles re-arrange bones" nothing to do with late, high or no arm tackles.

The Sun is not exactly a decent source, but for the record I think "trademark" is unnecessarily POV. But to be honest I agree with that point of view, he is known for high shots.GordyB 13:22, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Not sure what counts as a good source will take a look a the policy tonight. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:12, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
