    I agree that outcome should not be the deciding factor but this put the US #9 out of the game.

    Hmm, maybe not landed on head or neck but driven into the ground, with one view at that I think i’d be going red, regardless of outcome

    You can see from the replay that the head also makes contact with (ie is slammed down with similar force) the ground. Red card.

    Straight up RC

    Can't even see why there would be any discussion.

    Minimum a yellow. I would probable be thinking about a red. He looked like the tackler had lost control and was reckless in his disregard for his duty of care to lower the tackled player to the ground safely.

    The only discussion point I could imagine would be (a) No initial contact with head or neck (b) Did he take him beyond the horizontal such that his shoulders were lower than his hips ?

    CTPE, you are giving the tackler too much benefit.

    18. A player must not lift an opponent off the ground and drop or drive that player so that
    their head and/or upper body make contact with the ground.


    I think this part comes into play.

    To me, the critical factor was lifting him to chest height (and he's a damn big lock!) and then body slamming him (WWE style) with his full weight on him.

    How can one find out if there was a citing?
