    how do they decide which to go for in foul play? If that head shot with a straight arm on a guy without the ball is only a yellow what constitutes a red card offence these days?

    Thought it was yellow on impact

    On impact? You mean you don’t think it hit him flush on the cheekbone?

    Well they obviously go for neither.

    This is not rugby union

    Pretty much this, go in high a bit hard/late for a tackle = yellow, try to take a bloke's head off = red

    Did you see the tackle and the way Hughes head whipped back? He did nearly take his head off!

    Once upon a time the yellow card/sin bin was really just for the fights and repeated penalty infringements. Send offs/Reds were for deliberate attempts to hurt players or inappropriate conduct (Tallis calling Harrigan a cheat). These days they're terrified to send guys to the bin, and we've had one send off in 2 years?

    Last year the use of the sin bin was great, this year it has been underused again.

    I can’t say yesterday’s tackle was a deliberate cheap shot, so I think they got it right.

    Other years, it would just be on report.

    They got it spot on yesterday. Was just careless. No swinging arm, not a shoulder charge.
