“He’s gone over the horizontal and he’s landed on head/neck/shoulder this been outlawed for about 12 years now”

“It was hard but fair at the start – maybe as an ex player you can explain to me the need for him to lift his leg and turn it into a dangerous tackle?? The initial hit is amazing – the second part is clearly foul play.”

“Come on Jarvs, no need for the flip! No need, he’d already made the dominant tackle! Yellow was deserved to deter players from unnecessarily doing that….”
