Bismarck Du Plessis controversially yellow carded for huge hit on Dan Carter

No I am not.
Intent versus accident only goes to the level of punishment. Making contact above the shoulders is dangerous.
I am sure most high tackles are accidents and yet they are still punished. The tackler is supposed to control his body into contact.

Bismarck Du Plessis controversially yellow carded for huge hit on Dan Carter

If a defender goes in to a tackle high and gets his arm around the ball carrier's neck, would you be ok with no penalty for that?
because if not i believe the same rule should apply to the ball carrier. If his fend, in this case his elbow, strikes someone above the shoulders, in this case in the neck, then he should be accountable. An elbow/forearm strike to the throat is potential lethal.

and to look at it another way, what if the fend was a hand to the face of the defender and the defender's eyes got gouged, would you be ok with that?

I would rather we not wait for a broken larynx or a fatality for you to realize your callousness.
We have had 2 fatalities here in Canada in recent years amongst teenage players.

Bismarck Du Plessis controversially yellow carded for huge hit on Dan Carter

I agree the yellow for the carter hit is disgraceful.
The second is legitimate.
Every player is responsible for their bodies. If you are playing in a way where your actions can, even accidentally, to seriously hurt another player then you are doing it WRONG.
Intent do not enter in to it until deciding punishment.

It was definitely a foul play but whether penalty or yellow card worthy...
I am inclined to say give a penalty and get on with the game. This results in loss of possession or 3 points.
