They seem to be swayed a lot by reputation (eg Tipuric and AWJ) and also who the media thinks should win -Racing, Leinster, Saracens etc. They probably think they will be more heavily criticized if the "underdog" wins.

It will be interesting to see if a citing ensues.

If Conway of Munster doesn't get cited for his actions on Saturday it'll make the whole situation look farcical..and as of the moment of this message...he hasn't.

A ridiculous challenge which should be punished.  I don't think the impact was as great on the Exeter player as it was on North however and if these things are outcome led, then there's a good chance that no action will be taken against Conway.

Had the Exeter player been hurt I'm sure there would be a citing.  As others have mentioned already, this will encourage players to fake injury to get the ref to take his cards out.

I always thought that when attempting a charge down, your arms would be high in the air - not hitting the kicker on the side of the neck with an elbow!Confused

OK, I do agree with the outcome thing now. I saw a clear tip tackle for Bath against Toulouse. It was really soft, there was no injury and so no card. If he had been injured - or feigned injury - then would have been a different story. Letter of the law I think red. There is an argument that had he been injured then it would by definition have been a worse tip tackle and so the card/citing "more" deserved but I think this is the point made.

Rugby players are tough though. Take this guy, for example:

Probably should issue a warning to any men before reading it!

No it’s not. It hits his chest. Fonotia hit North’s neck. Your compare a gif eyes are playing tricks on you.
