    Default Henshaw on May

    England v Ireland 65 mins. Jonny May makes a break down the right wing. As he approached the 22 he kicks ahead and then is clattered by Henshaw. Peyper sees nothing wrong.
    Was it obstruction by Henshaw or was he in the process of making a tackle as May kicked?
    Did Henshaw use his arms in the tackle - 'wrap' ?
    Should Peyper have consulted the TMO?
    Should the TMO have intervened to advise Peyper?
    Should the AR have intervened?

    Thoughts?

    it looked to me like a no arms tackle, slightly late.

    because it was borderline late they seemed to ignore the no arms bit

    Borderline late but clearly no arms tackle, for me should have been a penalty. Don't think it was a clear scoring opportunity

    No arms tackle and late - and yes he should have consulted the TMO - I'm surprised the TMO didnlt intervene as overall he seemed pretty active

    No arms, marginally late, but replays to assess must be real-time as slow-mo always makes it look worse. Justice probably done as May knocked on before this.

    I could easily accept a YC!
    No attempt to grasp ( wrap )!

    One of a number of very poor decisions IMHO!

    Yes to all three...
    ... to penalise May for being offside at the ruck when he stole the ball...

    Agree that Henshaw’s challenge was late. In slow motion it is clear that he did not adjust to make the challenge until May had kicked. TMO should have been consulted and possible YC.
    That said I thought that Owen Farrell should have received a YC for holding on and Curry should also have been YC for neck roll immediately prior to Ireland try.
    I don’t think the scrum was refereed well. Both England loose heads were stepping out, driving in and pulling down throughout.
    Keep smiling!

    Pretty sure May was offside at the ruck, I don't think he knocked on though. The Henshaw tackle was on the late side, on a break, and C&O no arms.

    The breakdowns were an absolute state for both teams, throughout, especially inside the 5m. In from the side, human torpedo-style no-arms entries, hands all over the ball. Poorly managed and dangerous.
