Same old, same old from Hartley i.e. the inevitable cheap shot, never having the courage to square up man to man.
I expect nothing less from him. Biting and sly digs are part of his armoury.

Have to say I felt a little sorry for Banahan, certainly didn't appear to be any malice in it and Allen, taking evasive action sort of ducked into it a little bit so 3 weeks is a tad harsh.

5 weeks for a full blooded swinging arm cowardly assault from behind, that would see you arrested in any town on a Saturday night.
Richie Rees got 12 for accidentally making contact with Hartley's face when he grabbed him, but it seems 'it don't mean jack if you wear the Black'.
Shocking decision from the IRB, compounded all the more with the "However, the Judicial Officer found that the player had not intended to make contact with the victim player's head" decision.
So exactly where WAS Hore aiming for on the body? Playful rib dig? Ankle tap?
Hang your head IRB for giving the AB's carte blanche to decide how THEY will police the game and not the ref's. Shameful.

Some of the talk on here about the obstructive running is frankly laughable. That sort of running by Davies goes on in every game of rugby at every level during every high ball, to one degree or another.
What DOESN'T happen is every player subsequently takes the law into their own hands and blindsides their opponent with a cheap, filthy shot from behind.
It's impossible to say that Wales would have beaten the AB's follwing what would have been an obvious sending off but 15 v 14 for 79 minutes would have been interesting!
Hore has been vivlified back in NZ and is still considered persona no grata by many after his previous misdemeanour away from the rugby field.
He ought to get a lengthy ban but I doubt it would bother the type of human being who shoots a defenceless, protected species with a shotgun for 'fun'.

As most tackles like that are these days, measuring that against Warburton's means this is a red all day long. Warburton let him go and immediately competed for the ball.
Simmons turned him well beyond 90, didn't release him and made sure he felt his full body weight.
Straight red and 4 weeks in my book.
