    Tough one.

    Real time that is a RC as it appears that the elbow makes contact with the neck area first.

    On looking at the slow-motion replay one sees the elbow hit the chest region and then slip up to the neck, which would warrant a

    However, the ball carrier shouldn't be leading with an elbow and so either decision is justified.

    Initial contact was chest then rose up, yellow, but agree looks worse real time. Yet again demonstrating that you’re running a risk if you push out with the forearm, fend properly or keep the arm in.

    No idea how I'd rule in real time with no TMO.
    But on viewing the replay I think I could /would mitigate to Y!

    How does this one compare to Kerevi in the RWC ?
    Pretty similar ...
    In both cases the ref played on and the TMO intervened
    Kerevi got a PK only (with 50% of RWC refs thinking it should be play on)
    Cobb gets a RC

    Were they that different ?

    RC for me. We need it out of the game.

    There was another one recently in pro14 that I thought also was harsh as a rc for a fend that was not elbow either.
