    Default Medium Force

    Apparently a shoulder to the face is only a yellow, as long as it's kept to "medium force"...

    They dont come much more deliberate than that .
    Referee has talked him self into a corner .
    I agree with yellow ( it was more of a soft shoulder , than hard ) .
    Not saying its ok what he did ,,i can just see why its a yellow .

    I couldn’t give a Red, if indeed I saw it at all with one viewing - but with replays like that I think he’s chickened out :-(

    Would like to see real-time speed but (at risk of lighting blue-touch paper...) could it be more face-to-shoulder, than shoulder-to-face...

    I'd go yellow - more careless/reckless than deliberate, medium force. Wouldn't be surprised by a red, though.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    I can’t see any mitigating factors whatsoever. Looked clear to me that Green 13 lined up for a deliberate headshot. Agree with consensus on here - very surprised it wasn’t red.

    red card.

    meanwhile red #5 was clearly requested to go backl to his team. He nodded then not only dind;t move to his own team but actually moved closer to the ref's chat with the green player.

    Clearly disobeyed a request from the ref.
