Cardiff Blues' Lloyd Williams red carded for alleged dangerous tackle

On one had, he DID turn him upside down and did drive him into the ground. Source: I watched the clip.

You can't quote a post written by an amateur referee as law. Not least because I, as a senior referee, disagree with it. Why would it be necessary that the tackler grasp the ball carrier below the hips?

What the dangerous tackle laws are trying to stamp out are tackles which are dangerous. I.e., the mischief they are trying to remedy are tackles which have an unacceptably greater chance of causing serious injury to the ball carrier.

Here the ball carrier ends up upside-down, with the neck/shoulder area taking the brunt of the force.

Cardiff Blues' Lloyd Williams red carded for alleged dangerous tackle

As a lvl 7 myself I'd agreed. Best advice I was ever give is "at a flashpoint situation, if you have to stop and think whether it's a red card or a yellow card, it's a red card. You must be certain it's a red card". I'm not surprised he gave a red, as an immediate reaction.

And flipping someone headfirst over your shoulder isn't reckless?

Three red cards in heated Leicester Tigers vs Bath battle at Welford Road

as a referee what bothers me most is that Leicester ultimately had the penalty. It's pretty clear that the penalty should go against the subsequent offence i.e. Deacon's punch
