Elvis Vermeulen yellow carded for huge hit on Zee Ngwenya

At least it was a tackle was with arms rather than shoulder charge or taking legs out. But still clearly early and dangerous - no opportunity to plant feet or protect himself. Yellow maybe a tad harsh - you see people tackled earlier than that who get away with a penalty. Force of the tackle probably swayed the referee.

Tai Tuifua's dangerous flying tackle on Nicky Robinson

That was a dangerous, high tackle to the head, but with a mitigating factor that Robinson was slipping down as the tackle was made. At least yellow card. Can't believe Barnes thought that was legal. Even if his arms were around the player, contact was strong and forceful to the head.
