Munster's Andrew Conway suspended after red card for reckless late tackle

If he's trying to charge the ball down, then he should be using his right arm to go somewhere that could conceivably block the ball - like his other arm is. Instead, his right arm is ben at an angle and drives into the head.

Angle at 44-45 seconds shows this clearly. Right call.

Owen Farrell dump tackle sparks fiery confrontation with Teimana Harrison

Harrison defo came into him with forearm/elbow onto neck, possibly twice, before OF does the 'only trying to get him off me' routine. (great sentence to roll out at that time!)

Tiny bit too much lifting in the tackle, but only tiny. Prob a peno by today's laws, but prob shouldn't be.

Great vision by Beale.

Not sure about Hooper - sorta did seem to be pushed, but I can see it was a tight call. Interested to hear what others think.

Sonny Bill Williams says he 'let his brothers down' after red card and ban

Ref did well not to bottle it considering how badly supported he was by the other officials.

this is one of those that actually looks less bad in slo mo - looks really bad at normal speed for a particular angle.

Whats the League position on this sort of hit btw? I know its slightly different to union, but how would this do in league?
