    TBH I'd not noticed this in the 2018 laws.

    I'm sure in 2017 it was only cynical offences that mandated a YC - to avoid things like Canada's front row just not being able to take the pressure.

    Maybe referees are still adopting the 'nothing changed' mantra. Doesn't explain the lack of a card for Fiji's PT, though

    I thought the protocol was to pick one .. the one you think moved first. (Bit I am not sure about that, and the fact that he didn't pick one suggest you are right)

    Spot on, as the then IRB confirmed in a "clarification" later.

    Can I make it clear that, In my opinion, had the referee identified the Welsh culprit, a YC should have been issued.
