    I don't get them RL boys.

    Punching in the face is perfectly acceptable because there was an unacceptable forearm shove.

    Well, that escalated quickly.
    Sorry about my English, as it isn't my mother tonge.

    I've seen a video on FB of the forearm smash to Flowers' chops. I think it may explain the "rush of blood" for the first punch at least. Nothing much explains the 2nd punch apart from red mist.

    TBH I would have both of them.

    Not even the first punch. It started with a cheap shot by Flowers on Hohaia while the ball was in the air which took Hohaia off his feet (see at 0.13 on 4eyesbetter's clip - the incident is the two players coming together about 22m out); he then chased Flower and shoulder-charged him, and got the two punches back for his pains.

    I've watched this back a few times, the first offence appears (to me at least) to be by Flowers, shortly after the kick goes up, seems to be a bit of a push on Hohaia as they are following the ball. Hohaia then reacts with the shove / forearm for which he gets punched and goes to ground. Can't explain the second punch though...just plain thuggery!

    Is SL a summer sport hence the Grand Final in October?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    I'd struggle to call any sport a summer sport in England.

    .
    Granted it looks worse in slo mo , but the targeting of the eye area appears calculatingly deliberate .... And doesn't fit into my definition of a red mist action !

    The code needs to send a strong message throughout all tiers of the game, will it?...we await
