    Bottled it.
    Direct contact to the head = red

    What was he thinking with this "medium force" thing?

    Clearly disobeyed a request from the ref.

    I was interested in that

    Not sure what the ref was doing there .. I believe the proper protocol is for both captains to be able to hear what is said ?

    On watching my brain wasn't screaming RC so therefore only a for me.

    I get the '...medium force...' statement but don't think that it was necessary.

    Certainly what I do, normally followed by me telling captains to go back to their team, explain my decision, and clearly point out that it's been dealt with and to move on (adds a few more seconds of time off to defuse the situation)

    So he propels himself shoulder first, without arms, making initial contact with the head.
    I'd hate to see a tackle that got described as 'excessive force'.

    In the pro-game I'd expect that to be straight red...

    not in our neck of the woods. Intent & degree of force are factors too.

    From our GMGs which are based on WR guidance:

    World Rugby High Tackle guidance 2017
    • World Rugby has provided new guidance regarding high tackles which are ‘reckless’ (minimum YC) and
    ‘accidental’ (minimum PK). Stricter enforcement is encouraged: ‘contact with the head’ should in most
    cases result in a PK minimum.
    • To decide an appropriate sanction (PK, YC or RC), referees should be considering:
    o Contact point – where did the tackle start/finish, was contact with hand, arm or shoulder?
    o Action – was the tackling action accidental, reckless or deliberate?
    o Degree of force – severity of impact, does the tackler ‘carry on’ through the tackle, e.g. around
    the neck?
    • Referees should use common sense – but player safety is paramount.

    For me the tackling action was deliberate. He didnt wrap and went high. I dont think he was aiming for the head but for me if you dont wrap and go high then you reap what you sow.

    Red card for me.
    Courage is knowing what lies on the other side and still opening the door !
