Issued a RC yesterday for a tip tackle.
As I watched it occur and immediately thereafter I ran the criteria through my head:-
Lift - check
Turn - check
Beyond horizontal - check
Driven/dropped - check
On head/shoulders - check
Unfortunately I had to keep the list fresh in my mind as I dealt with the melee afterwards which fortunately was handbags as far as I could see (there was an allegation of a punch thrown from soon to be 14 men's coach). Got teams separated and went into cool calm and collected mode.
Anyway got culprit and recounted the checklist to him and captain to give me a bit of time before issuing card to blue 13.
After game it appears that was his first team debut!!!
Coach after asked me my version of it and I recounted the check list again to him. He shrugged and we agreed to disagree I think.
Got the usual "but it wasn't malicious" from a few at the time and in the bar afterwards.
Assessor thought I got it spot on and he wondered pre red card whether I'd have the balls to do it.
