Manu Tuilagi likely to be cited after flurry of punches on Chris Ashton

@Kev, Comment relating May 15th.

The fact of the matter here is that Ashton was taken without the ball, i say taken as there was no attempt at a tackle being made by Manu, it was a straight arm which in itself is illegal and is a penalty/yellow card for no attempted tackle,

Further to this point the shove from ashton in the back, which in fact was a knee was retaliation to the fact he had been straight armed, which is a penality aswell.

And finally, the punches from manu, are numerous, if this was done in the street he would be arrested for ABH/GBH and put in prison, so why is he getting away with a 5week ban and a yellow card. This should have been a straight Red card with a ban exceeding the 5weeks he got given.
