It was a head clash. Barely a yellow card. Very sad for souths 13 though. 12 weeks? please..
Barely a yellow you need to take you eyepatch off. You are using the incorrect thinking
The tackle was reckless with direct contact to the head with force. Red card. Similar to taking a guy out in the air the tackler is responsible for the outcome.
I know the boy who did it will feel sick about the outcome but that Brothers team were obviously under instructions to win the physical battle at all costs and were overamped which was interesting as when they flogged Souths at Crosby it was through a very smart game plan that was well executed and a Souths team that was overamped.
I hope the boy who made the tackle puts some serious work into his technique as he will either injure someone else or himself soon with equally horrific results.
I think the coaching staff should take a look at themselves as they are responsible for the manner of there teams play and IMHO they got that wrong. I am not saying they said go out and injure someone far from it, I am saying they got it wrong and their team went to far.
