    I have just watched this incident for the first time, and I cannot see where there is any argument.

    White 6 ran in and pushed a Blue player to the ground, and Blue 11 ran in and tackled White 6 to the ground. IMO, neither of these actions is serious enough to warrant a YC.

    Blue 3 threw a punch that landed in direct contact to an opponent's head, with force. That is a nailed on 24/7/365.

    The rest was handbags. No-one else did anything worthy of a YC.

    I think the Match Officials handled it well, and got it right.

    Your perspective seems out of kilter with others on here.

    Respectfully, the one in all in still exists. What has changed since the days you (and I started playing), is the manner of involvement. When we started it was very common for player to go flying in fists ablaze. Now it's more pushing and shoving and grabbing to drag players out.

    I didn't really say I wouldn't card anyone if it happened in one of my games. It would depend on what's happened in the melee. But I stand by as a minimum if you card Ritchie, you have to card France 11 too. He's actually ran in at a higher speed and actually charged into Ritchie. Still would be a YC.

    But again, a stern word to both players and captains would suffice for that. With the RC for the punch.

    This with bells on. But IF you YC Ritchie, you'd then need to YC B11 at least. But yes, Ian_Cook. 100% agree with you. That makes 6 of us. You, me and the 4 match officials lol
