    How about poor tackling technique as demonstrated by Connor Murray on Johnny May?

    Murray tries to tackle May's shoulder with his head

    Then Murray is at fault not May. Same as Halfpenny. His poor technique, his problem.

    I think there'a a chance May will get cited on the basis of forearm leading.

    Similarly the late incident with white 5 which resulted in a yellow card.

    Nigel Owens immediately made the decision which may well be correct based on mitigation for an unsighted defender, however I would not be surprised if, on review, it were ro be judged a red card offence.

    I'm replying on the basis of the comment and not the actual incident, which I've not seen.

    5% or 95% chance?

    May stepped inside and shrugged off the poor challenge, Murray's head was on May's upper arm. Replay is at 30:40 on game clock.

    If that's a citing them the game of rugby is finished.

    Had exactly this situation in a ladies game yesterday: BC led with her upper shoulder in an upwards direction directly into the face/chin area of tackler. I went with YC
