Baxter was actually quite interesting. His point about high tackles is spot on - the players know the new laws and how strictly theyíre being enforced so it must be maddening for a coach (and us supporters) if they donít give them a very wide berth.

The one where their prop (Holmes I think) gave away a high tackle penalty on our line to let us out of our 22 was case in point. Given the field position and game situation, just go low, hit legs and donít go anywhere near giving away a penalty.

Baxter wasnít taking anything away from us. In fact, he made a point to say he wasnít taking anything away from us. He was just saying how players know the laws and, whether you agree with them or not, itís dumb to not follow them. I agree. Nothing makes me madder than seeing intelligent rugby players giving away dumb penalties and 3 points or 40 yards.
