I think Sky commentators & RL fans really have to be taught the difference between a 'spear tackle' which could cause serious injury & a dangerous throw/tackle (legs above horizontal) which can lead to serious injury but only really when the offending party drops their opponent on their head/neck.

The thing that annoyed me with Briers 'Dangerous Throw', which he didn't 'dunk', wasn't his stupidity it was the commentator on Sky & Hudds fan on here who classified it as a 'Spear tackle' even though there was no spearing involved. The ref got that one right, it was just a penalty, nothing more/nothing less.

The Briers one was worse than the Buderus effort because Briers was not effecting a correct tackling technique. He had hands between legs and lifted.

I can't really remember the Buderus 'dangerous throw' all that well but didn't he pick his oppents legs higher and drop him on his upper shoulders?

Anything been said about the supposed Missiles being thrown at the Wigan players at the weekend?

Cas get landed with a fine for throwing words, lets see if that gets mentioned, especially since they made such a big fuss about it on the Sky commentary.
