Don't see what the hub bub is about... what are the NZRFU going to do... tear up his contract?

You will probably find that he is not allowed to play in a competive match without the NZRFU or Club Permission.....

Well that ball moves pretty fast, you could break a bone or two if you get hit hard enough.

to be fair it isn't really a top level soccer club. it's more of a social team he was playing in than a top level club.

but he proabbly has clauses in his contract that do not allow him to play such sports while he is playing for the all blacks etc. mainly due to thie high risk of injury I guess of something like soccer and they want players to be playing for the nzrfu only as they are the employers of the players.

Well, playing in a recreational league has probably fairly low risk of injury.

he obviously has mental issues... first he starts kicking drop goals, now he's using a round ball.... what next??

well it seems all fine. nzrfu are happy for carter to play soccer. mcCaw flies planes in his spare time and another ab plays golf.

golf is only dangerous if you get hit by a golf ball.

i have only hit one person while playing gold, ok i was 12 and i didnt yell "FOUR" but i did hit my principal (was a pretty good shot i thought at the time) dont remember much else i remember hitting him though.

and i didnt even get in trouble for it :)

cause we all know golf is so dangerous.
well could get a back injury or shoulder injury. some form of a hand injury. there is risk but not a whole lot.
