Butch James suspended for four weeks for high tackle on Jurgen Visser


Law 10.e applies here
Sanction: Penalty Kick

In this case there wasn't an injured player, and the referee was playing advantage [which was duly taken] IMO the post match ban is unwarranted. The referee assessed the situation & could of cautioned or YC or RC , he chose neither - so that should be the end of it.

Yes, Perhaps Dr Robson was showing him how to clear the tackle area quickly, just in case Horwill's boots come 'unbalancing' towards him again !!!

Wallaby skipper James Horwill cleared and free to play in deciding Lions Test

zzzzzzzzzzzzz

Every player who now stamps on the face of another will plead the Horwill defence,

I didn't know his head was there, & I was unbalanced by something ......... prove these statements wrong !

I wonder how many seriously injured players will look back on this 'landmark' case & curse !!

George North picks up and carries tackler Israel Folau

Despite massive respect for Folau [In my view the most exciting player on the park] I think that once North has 'ensured he landed safely [well done GN] that IF's action of dropping him on his head is very dangerous & is precisely why lifting tackles were outlawed...

This should be referred to the citing commissioner to decide whether it was foul play.

IMHO dangerous & subject to action.
