    ? "push / strike"
    Well was it a push (legal) or was it a strike (illegal) ?

    Doesn’t really matter. It was off the ball and to the head. As far as I can see there wasn’t much force. We don’t need to go down the route of semantics on this one. Both are illegal. Both are a ‘hit’ to the head.

    Off the ball as described. ...what more do you want to hear?

    Edit. ...Unless you want to differentiate between yellow and red!

    Ok so by off the ball, you mean neither player was the ball carrier ?
    Fair enough then

    The actual words used by the AR were “15 struck out with a flat hand” and the ref gave his reason to the captain as a “push to the face”. Take your pick.
    The player who was struck was a player attached to a ruck.

    I was over on the far touch line so too far away to see and player described it to me as a hand off.
    AR was in position and I am sure she got the call right.

    The plot thickens , I wouldnt describe an incident in a ruck as being "off the ball"


    So for clarity : this was between two players in a ruck. The player striking out was not the ball carrier ?

    Why are we trying to invent more reasons to blow the whistle? Hand off away!!

    For even more clarity, the ball had just left the ruck and that was why (probably) the referee did not see it. The No15 entered the ruck area late and the altercation took place. The contact cannot be seen on the video but the AR was right next to the ‘ruck’ since it was very clise to the touchline.
