first_imgMonday Jun 2, 2014 Wales Under-20 Dafydd Howells scores fastest try in international rugby The Junior World Championship kicked off in Auckland today with Wales, South Africa and England topping the pools after day one. In Pool B we saw one of the fastest tries from a kick-off ever, as Wales got off to a flyer vs Fiji, scoring after just 7 seconds. ADVERTISEMENTThe opening day included big wins for South Africa, who beat Scotland 61-5, England who beat Italy 63-3, Australia who beat Argentina 36-17 and hosts New Zealand, who beat Samoa 48-12. In the tightest contest of the day, France beat Ireland 19-13.“We saw some real tough battles out there on the opening day of #JWC2014,” said Jonah Lomu, acting as IRB Junior World Championship 2014 Tournament Ambassador.“It’s still too early to call it, but some of the performances were really exciting. There was some real physicality and skill on display today. Now that all the teams have a game under their belt, I’d expect the competition to step up even further on Friday.”Wales scored five tries in total as they put Fiji away with a 48-19 thumping in Pukekohe. Winger Dafydd Howells chased the kickoff well and got a lucky bounce, allowing him to run away with what is arguably one of the fastest tries ever scored in international rugby.We’ve posted various clips over the years highlighting some of the fastest tries scored from the kickoff in both domestic and Test rugby, with John Leslie’s try for Scotland in 1999 widely acknowledged as the quickest in Tests. This from Howells however appears to top the list overall.We’ll get official highlights from all the games posted here throughout the weekADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 20 WEEKS AGO It’s 30 years since France scored that epic… 21 WEEKS AGO Amazing acrobatic skills set up early try… 21 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Arguably the most insane three minutes… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Vaea Fifita cops ban after ‘questionable’ red card is ruled to be the correct call

first_imgTuesday Jun 4, 2019 Vaea Fifita cops ban after ‘questionable’ red card is ruled to be the correct call Hurricanes forward Vaea Fifita’s sending off has been upheld after a disciplinary hearing ruled that he had indeed contravened law Law: 9.13, for dangerous tackling, against the Sharks in Super Rugby on Saturday. ADVERTISEMENTThe Hurricanes came away from Durban with a 30-17 win but lost Fifita to a red card with just six minutes left in the game.His tackle on Dan Du Preez was deemed worthy of a red card as it was with force and at the throat area (high). A SANZAAR Judicial Committee Hearing backed up the referee decision and has now suspended him for three weeks.Hurricanes coach John Plumtree was unhappy with referee Nic Berry’s call at the time.“I questioned that it had force (the tackle). For me it looked like a swinging arm. He didn’t quite get the height right in the tackle, but I certainly questioned the force. That’s what the discussions were about,” Plumtree said.“Another referee would’ve yellow carded that. That’s just the consistency that everyone is after. But again Nic made the call and we have to live with it.”ADVERTISEMENTIn her finding, the Judicial Committee Chairperson Helen Morgan ruled the following:“With respect to sanction, the Judicial Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of 6 weeks due to the World Rugby instructions that dictate any incident of foul play involving contact with the head must start at a mid-range level. Taking into account mitigating factors including the Player’s clean judicial record, his acceptance of foul play and his expressed remorse, the Judicial Committee reduced the suspension to 3 weeks.“The player is therefore suspended for 3 weeks, up to and including 22 June 2019.”Law: 9.13 A player must not tackle an opponent early, late or dangerously. Dangerous tackling includes, but is not limited to, tackling or attempting to tackle an opponent above the line of the shoulders even if the tackle starts below the line of the shoulders.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
