    Default Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    In one of the women's 6N games alst weekend (I _think_ it was Ireland v Wales ) there was a head clash incident reviewed by TMO.

    I unfortunately cannot find it on any video available online - if anybody can Id be grateful becasue obviously its difficult to discuss this without such :-( ISTR it was around ten 60-70 minute mark but I might be horribly wrong! )

    Anyway, which ever it was...

    there was a tackle which was reviewed by the TMO. It was very upright, no obvious mitigation. Head clash. With force in the impact.

    The TMO and ref agreed it was "accidental" so there were no cards due.

    Understandably maybe, women's rugby doesnt have the same level of "force" on the whole that men's rugby does. But then again nor would U14 lads and i cant see that that would be a distinguishing difference?

    So is the protocol different in the women's 6N ? Cos i can't see why frankly it wasnt a RC?

    anybody else see it?

    It sounds like it's time for your medicine and your afternoon nap. Matron will put the Perry Como tape on for you.

    Don’t think it was I v W. I’ve just checked (at double speed) and couldn’t see any review of a head clash.

    For me it's an accidental rugby collision.
    I don't agree that it should have been a red card.

    If you follow the new flowchart, and decide no foul play, then it’s play on (which I agree with here) but has there not been cards for similar head on head clashes in the prem?

    I suppose it depends when the new flowchart appeared/came online?

    I do recall you chaps discussing it now.
