USA Women's winger Naya Tapper banned for alleged kick

If a teammate on his way off the pitch came to high five me on the way out, I'd look him straight in the eye and tell him to put that hand down and get the f*ck off the field.

USA Women's winger Naya Tapper banned for alleged kick

First kick to #6 seemed accidental. She couldn't have known her face was right where her heel was going to hit. The second kick to #15 was intentional. New rugby players (which she clearly is to me, as I'll outline below) tend to flail their legs around when they're tackled. And sometimes these flailing legs make contact with faces (often times their own teammates coming in to ruck). I've had to tell many new players to NOT flail their legs when they're on the ground. Yellow card is the right call. The weekend ban seems harsh.

And how I know she's new? Well one, the captain has to tell her where to go for the sin bin. But even funnier, she goes to shake all her teammates hands before she leaves the field. I would never shake my teammates hand before they leave the field with a yellow card (except for a professional foul or referee error), especially for a needless yellow like this one!

Digby Ioane manhandles Bryan Habana in tense Top 14 clash

Nothing wrong with the first hit. I can't stand when the commentators complain about a non-call. GET ON WITH IT.

The second hit, however, is quite dangerous. You can't go lifting people off the ground. There was no reason Ioane has to lift him. That drop could have been much, much more dangerous. Deserves the yellow surely.

Estebanez committed the first illegal hit as well. At :03 he shoulder charges one of the Saracens players.

Dirty hit, he deserves a couple week ban.
