    Default How is this not a YC or RC?

    Apparently from an Oxford 3rds game. The ref doesn't even flinch

    Wearing my referee's hat:
    Pk for dangerous tackle/cleanout

    Wearing my player's hat:
    Opponent got what he deserved,: He had no right to be there (wrong side of the ruck & not bound, offside, playing the SH... take your pick)

    He came charging in from a distance which is dangerous in and of itself, but he wrapped his arms and performed a reasonable clear-out of a guy who was illegally a part of a breakdown making a nuisance of himself. It wasn't a shoulder charge, nor was it high.

    I can easily see why the ref ignored it.

    *shrug*.

    I can't see anything dangerous. arm wrap, on player in the immediate vicinity of the ball, no head clash.

    Play on.

    He bound, legally. Which offence would you card for?

    It looks worse than normal because blue stands up and starts appealing to the ref for something rather than staying bound in.

    10.4 (h) A player must not charge into a ruck or maul. Charging includes any contact made without use of the arms, or without grasping a player.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    so not applying to the bloke in that video then.

    Attachment 3647

    the image is somewhat grainy die to the nature of the provided video but the circled arm is that clearer's arm. Clearly use of the arm around the opponent.

    So nothing illegal there at all then.

    He binds on. Nothing to see play on.

    Looks like a charge to me. Not being bound is just a supplemental nail in the coffin for any would be offender.

    It does not imply the two conditions have to be considered hand in hand. The ref might have been unsighted as to the distance and speed of the charge.
