Didn't even know that was an offence tbh, not that I'm necessarily against it. Does anyone know what, if any, criteria there is for it becoming a red card?



I mean. If you have to cop one then it's the best time to do it tbh.
Yeah weird that they looked at the leg but not the potential neck roll

^ they looked at & cleared the potential neck roll, you could hear Barnes say so. Interesting that in explaining why the YC stays a YC he said it's because Frizell fell rather than attacked the lower leg (which @zer0 is a penalty & possible Card offence, as it should be).

Darcy Swain received a yellow card for attacking the leg of Quinn Tupaea at Marvel Stadium last year.

Red Card is madness. Change of direction, player low to the ground.

Sure, read the guidelines to me. The guidelines are fucked. They don't protect anyone, they don't make the game safer. Congratulations World Rugby.

Fair enough yellow for Cane, red is garbage. And I’m usually more than happy to see multiple darkness players sitting on the sideline. Now I’m even more backing NZ, c’mon lads you can still do this.

Losing Cane obviously sucks but Frizell having copped a bullshit YC seriously de-powers AB as he's got to be squeaky clean for however long Foster leaves him out there & that's just not his jam.
