    3 weeks I think, less than Manu, I've not seen a copy of that hearing yet so not sure the maths, but in public perception it seems odd to me that an intentional punch to the face gets a lesser sanction than a 'tackle' gone wrong.

    It is worth pausing for a second , though, to see if there WAS some mitigation.
    somebody here, this week, has said that there is no mitigation "available" in the 6N though.

    so the rest is redunadnt surely?

    Well it seems to me WR et al have a right mess here. As discussed and pointed out above.

    we have (probably!) stuff going wrong getting longer bans than out and out deliberate punches, and mitigation being applied where (we are told) none is available.


    they are just making it up as they go along - arent they?
