That's two occasions in two games now he should have been carded. 

Last week for his clear out on Cawdor after the whistle had gone when North made contact with Cawdor's head. Should have been red. 

Today against Elliot Dee, when he landed on Dee's head deliberately with his knee and a forearm to the face. Disgusting. But he gets away with it. 

Guaranteed the Western Fail won't mention that incident.

Both incidents have been quite shocking as there appears to be a splt second of pre-meditation involved before hurting the other player (as opposed to recklessly colliding with someone)

And the main S4C commentary team didn't seem too keen to discuss it either, after  it was brought up by one of the "irregulars" whose name I didn't hear, but he did mention that it looked like a red to him.

One rule for some isn't it? 

Jamie Robinson was the one who looked at the incident.

4 week ban would rest him up nicely
We're still still here!

Ospreys fans getting their knickers in a twist on Twitter with fans bringing up the incident. Typical.

He does seem to have an unpleasant side to him which comes out now and again. There was the incident in the first Lions in 2013. He did apologise, but it was totally unnecessary to gloat the way he did. Celebrating after scoring is fine, but what be did was embarrassing.

Can't say I noticed his latest misdemeanour but he should have been carded for the Cawdor challenge. No better than the Fairbrother challenge which saw red.

He had a little lash out at Kirchner too when he got tackled into touch, but luckily Kirchner was out of his reach. Seems to have an anger management problem, which is not a good thing when you're the size and weight of North.

Georgie boy can’t be touched and the game in PYS sums it up really. He runs into Fonatia’s forearm, as Fonatia takes man and ball, Fonatia gets a 3 week ban. George commits something similar or worse, not even a penalty against him or a period of 10 mins in the cooler.
