    Tindall is a big lad, not really one you would want to mess with.

    looked like a standard tackle in the east league circa 1990.

    I remember one of my defenders doing a very similar tackle a few years back. He didn't have the misfortune of the match being replayed on TV though and escaped without any punishment.

    No, it doesn't work for me either. Maybe they've deleted it as they've sorted out the BBC Sports News pages now that the Olympics are over?

    The Canadian did try and go through, rather than round him. If Tindall hadn't deliberatley straightened up to throw the Candaian off him, the foul should have gone Tindall's way.
