    Watching some of these videos, f**k me. Bring back the shoulder charge. Stupid rule. If there’s contact with the head, penalty, otherwise play on. Got sent off that many times playing schoolboy rugby for shoulder hits and they make for great spectating.

    Loved seeing tackles like that.

    Also when Nigel Plum would pull off one of his hits.

    This old-fashioned clean and hard hit by NSW Legend Matt Prior on the Coffs Harbour Incident always makes my dick bust concrete...

    Going back a bit but the one that I’ll always remember was a Ruben Wiki hit on Adrian Lam at the then Bruce Stadium on a freezing Friday night. Absolutely smashed.

    Sia Soliola on Billy Slater in 2017 was my personal favourite.

    Can’t agree with this one. With the build and strength of athletes these days and the focus on long term rugby league welfare shoulder charges are highly dangerous. If you recall, they banned it because of some really bad ones including the death of a prop in a Queensland comp and the hit on Matt Frawley which put him in intensive care with bruising of the brain. Having any of these bad hits opens it up for liability issues, affects reputation of games including concerns for people wanting their children to play etc. Yes, they are good when they come off well but the percentages are not high and when they don’t come off they’re ugly.
