Francois Steyn red carded for attempting to take Johnny Sexton's head off

Betson got a few hits in though iirc. Honestly he was one of those flankers that would ruin your day, whether it be physically or whether it be because you have it in your mind that he's coming for you...

Bloody hell, and, with all respect, you're an old bugger too!

...Or maybe I'm just a dirty bastard!

So, shoulder to chest = fine

Shoulder to chest + head to head = not fine? Therefore card?

I guess that makes sense if say shoulder hits chest and arm hits head... But still, certainly a shake up in the way the game has been for a while..m

Wait, did you mean first EVER yellow card? Or first yellow under the new directives?

Haha, no I do understand, I suppose you're right that we've been on a slippery slope to persistant high tackles, however I always preferred the slight freedom referees were given before now, where they could say "yup that was blatant and intentional, red card" or "I totally understand he ducked last moment and you just caught him high, penalty only..."

I'm inclined to agree with Stroudos here....

...If I pulled out of tackles on the 10 then I'd probably not do anything all game...

Lol, looks remarkably like Hartley's effort... Tbf though, I'd still assume SOB was trying to tackle and dislodge the ball...

Would we be looking at a card if Steyns shoulder had hit Sextons chest, but his head hit Sextons head too?

Someone mentioned headclash above, I believe they meant head contact, but it got me.thinking about head V head hits?
