    According to the Directive (which you rarely hear mentioned these days) the tip tackle alone is a

    According to the Directive ANY tip tackle is an offence and if

    1. the player is dropped (I think the wording says "without regard for his safety") or
    2. speared into the ground

    it's a compulsory

    This is what Warburton got carded for in the World Cup Semi Final , because the dropped the French player.

    I don't think the tip tackle directive is still a live document. All traces of it were removed from the WR website some years ago...

    I remember you saying, but apparently it was quoted in a very recent citing.

    And I'm working on the assumption that it's still active until somebody in authority tells me different.

    I’d go for a second yellow, as the ref did.

    Player landed on his side, if he had not put his arm out I am not sure he would have landed on his head, may well have been his shoulder, and whilst he was dropped, it was from a very low height....I can see how others may get to Red but for me, doesn’t quite get there, but is reasonably marginal.

    Have you got a copy to refer to ?
    It actually makes quite interesting reading . I should look it up again but from memory one problem with it is that the definition of a tip tackle used is no longer the same as the description in the Law.

    In the RWC you will recall that whenever it was cited the result was that the tackle in question didn't fit the definition of a tip tackle and the offender was charged with a lesser offence

    I'm not convinced that's what happened.
    The referee thinks it was 23 and says so, the TMO says no, it was 13 and they go to check.
    I think Foden who was 23 is saying "that's me, i'm 23", rather than "it was me".

    Foley was smiling and joking with the oppo #8 - it certainly didn't like him berating the ref!

    I think he was trying to claim that it was him as he didn't want his team mate to get a second YC?

    What would have been funny would have been the ref going RC! I'm sure Foden wouldn't have been smiling about that one

    Can you say how the law book defines / in the past defined a "tip", or indeed a "spear", tackle?
