Redruth Rugby Club obviously condone violence on the rugby pitch. That thug Nathan Pedley spear tackles Cameron Johnston by dropping him from shoulder height, so hard that he fractured his spine and ended up in Newcastle Hospital.
The Surgeon said Johnston was lucky not to have had a permenant serious injury. What does Pedley get, just a six month ban. He should have been banned for five years. Penberthy of Redruth club obviously doesn't think it's a serious matter by the stupid comment he made at the end of the hearing. I won't repeat what he said, it makes a mockery of discipline proceedures.

I don't think for one minute that Redruth Rugby Club condones any kind of dangerous tackles or violence . And any comments made by Penbethy were out of order. :-x

If the club had any integrity they would ban Pedley for life, to show that they will not tollerate that type of behaviour. That would really show they were setting a good example by getting thugs out of the game.
