    Default Sale v Leicester Yellow Card?

    Just watched the game and after chasing a kick the Sale 15 and Leicester 15 collide. As is the norm both are watching the ball all the way and both jump. The Leicester player who came in higher and faster had higher to fall. So the Sale full back got the yellow card where is the responsibility of the Leicester full back for his own safety and given the reckless approach he made why not also yellow card him?

    If you penalise one player how do you choose which one?

    The only solution i feel is to make it illegal to jump and catch the ball.

    Thoughts?

    Just seen it on the highlights. For me YC was about right. Sale 15 barely off the ground and head collided with Leicester player's hip. Ref took time to review with TMO and they agreed YC.

    The OP raises a very good question to which I don't think the powers that be have yet come up with an answer. If I had to guess, the player with the lower altitude will invariably get the card.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Why guess at all? I haven't seen the clip of the one referred in OP, but if both have eyes for the ball and contest for the ball...why cannot it not be a rugby incident?

    Exhibit A - half said play on, half said red card and the other half said something else.

    You might want to read that again, more closely, 100% said play on. Nobody genuinely said RC, and nobody said 'something else'.

    Yes they are both watching the ball all the way in, but the Sale player doesn't leave the floor, he just runs straight into the Leicester players lower legs, upending him in mid air.

    I agree the Sale player was not really intent on hurting the other player, but we referee on actions not intent.

    Penalty only or Penalty+YC would both have been acceptable.

    To his credit, after seeing himself on the big screen and being shown the YC, the Sale player just trotted off without a word.

    Watched the highlights last night, interestingly the referee ,after first review , was heading towards "nothing there" until the TMO advised him ( correctly) of the PK/YC .
