    In these incidents those things are considered in mitigation. And apparently 3 top level referees and a TMO also took those into consideration. But I'm glad it gave you a laugh.
    Hodge’s tackling technique is appalling. It was evident against the All Blacks yet one of the worst Wallabies coach in the pro era had him marking Radradra. It took Semi two minutes to line him up and have him down as road kill. He did it again. Hodge didn’t stop Yato legally. Didn’t wrap his arms around the ball carrier and went high.

    I wouldn’t be using match officials letting it go as an argument. They have been getting it wrong since the crackdown on dangerous tackles started. A good example is the seat belt tackle on Remy Grosso that fractured Grosso’s skull. No penalty, no cards, no suspension. No surprise that Cane was one of the culprits his technique is worse than Hodge’s. Often hits guys high with his shoulder around the head without wrapping his arms. No red cards, no suspensions disgraceful.

    Yep. It took the referees about 10 years to start carding McCaw regularly for serial and cynical infringing.

    Read got Jamie Heaslip high around his neck to stop a driving maul five metres out, this was after Fekitoa nearly took Zebo’s head off. Fekitoa only got a yellow card but picked up a suspension. Another case of the match officials getting it wrong. Earlier Sam Cane shoulder charged Robbie Henshaw in the head, Henshaw was knocked out cold. Only a yellow and no citing. The referee was Jaco Peyper who is definitely an AB fan boy. This match led to a further crackdown on dangerous tackles.

    Last year Read shoulder charged Francois Louw in the head in a clean out. Straight in front of the ref. Louw took no further part in the match. To make it worse a separate Boks player got carded.

    Hodge was wrong footed and put off balance by the Fijian player stepping inside and dropping slightly. Bloody ridiculous. If that's the bench mark, those 2 Samoans can expect life.

    BTW. Marcel is 50-1 for first try and you can bet each way. Get on
    sorry, but that looked like you were blaming the fijian player.

    it's hodges responsibility, and it could have been the best try saving tackle of the tournament if things had gone to plan.
    i don't expect anybody to stand idly by, but hodge was out of control with no way of adjusting.

    and as for tv pundits saying it's 'too early' for decisions and bans like this, and 'they have set a precedent'.
    isn't this laying the law down?
    ie we are not having this sort of shit in this tournament.

    Maybe so. Luckily we all have opinions and mine hasn't changed, careless and reactive but not reckless. 3 matches at RWC is too much IMO. Hodge has admitted he was not clear on WR's protocols and looks like their match officials are also not. If mitigating circumstances are not to be considered they should educate everyone.

    Of course Hodge would say that. He is coached by Cheika who plays dumb and ignorant frequently when it comes to officiating.

    That penalty against Kerevi was farcical

    Great match . Very difficult to overcome a lead like that . Wales were the better side on the day . The Wallabies are going to pay the price for their poor starts at the business end . DHP I thought had a great game .

    Second biggest travesty was Hooper asking about poor tackle technique on Kerevi incident - after the Hodge episode
    Biggest travesty ... Hooper remaining on the pitch after his cowardly hit on Biggar ...

    If the ref's have been asked to apply laws to protect players ... I'm in complete disbelief that it was let go

    DHP has such a great game that Cheika decided it was too much and Beale should be fullback instead, farkin hell.
