Paul Williams yellow carded for huge hit on Theuns Kotze

Err... The Namibian player was trying to sell another dummy, therefore he had bad balance and wasn't prepared to take the tackle. Williams didn't seem to have any malice in his tackle and he was trying to use his arms. He just could not due the aforementioned reasons leading to the fact that Kotze was on his arse.

As you very well know even in union you actually take/deliver the hit with your shoulder. If you don't it's an arm tackle and your tackle will be broken more often than not.

Of course you're most likely going to stick to your opinion but it's still the wrong interpretation. Kotze took the hit like a proper rugby player, dusted it off and kept playing. You should do the same.

Clean hit. Definitely not a yellow card. Don't like it when they seem to punish tacklers so easy nowadays.
