I've just looked at the incident again. First off the No8 was offside so thats one reason to penalise and yellow card him plus penalty try. Second, Trimble smacked him in the chops and possibly a worse case for a yelow card, plus the No5 came in with a sly punch on the floor, plus as the ball wasn't grounded and in fact not across the try line, there was a case for a yellow card for the No8 not rolling away.

I think Ulster got away lightly with just one yellow card and a penalty try. :D




I think Ulster lost a game they should have won. Not saying your biased mind Rob ;)

Conditions obviously effected the quality of the game. What's going on with LIam Williams he hasn't seemed happy for a few games. Reading his lips he wanted to know "what the *fups* that about" regarding his removal in last 10 minutes. Coaches left a kid on who looked suspect at 15 in very bad conditions in a very tight game. I had to wonder, what the *fups* that about...... Any idea ?

There is a saying that most games are lost not won.

I think Ulster were the better team in the first half but I feel the Scarlets gained the upper hand after half time. The yellow card didn't affect the game as both teams lost a player for 10mins at the same time more or less.

Not sure what Sanjay was cross about. Was it his substitution or was it something else? He's been carrying a niggle or two I believe and this has prevented him from performing at his best.

To answer a few other posts, I think we the fans will grow to accept that these penalties and yellow cards are going to be given for exactly this sort of tackle. Players will also adjust and soon we will just accept it as part of the game.

I think its a ploy because they know womens rugby and mens rugby wil be joining up and we need to tackle them "around the chest"

Actually I am suprised how quiet the "tip tackle" fuss has gone

Aha I see, now they are more concerned about the tit-tackle. :D

I think they have gone from the game largely as people know they will get carded....have been replaced by the aerial assault

I'm guessing it was coined by a Scarlets fan! Certainly it is a saying that they stick to.

That "high" tackle just came up on me fb......... Ref was high for sure. Bloke with the ball should've been hit in the chops for being greedy.
WTF is going on!? :scratch:

What appears to be going on is a zero tolerance to anything however apparently innocuous that occurs in the tackle above the chest. My gut feeling it players will have to adapt attitude and technique, or it could be a passing fashion, like putting the ball in straight.

it was a penalty try no doubt.

the thing is teams will adapt to the new directive and high tackling HAS to stop so it has my support.

an interesting point is that a friend of mine when to see Sale v Bristol last week and he says Charnley, the League man, is struggling as all his tackles go high. Assuming he improves, then this is just a transitional thing that HAS To happen if kids are going to want to be playing the game

Yes, penalty try but the rule is very silly.

If I were a cynic I would say that players with the ball will go a bit lower to get a player sent off. It is a rule that could cause unintended consequences and actually make the problem of high tackles worse.

Same happened to Sam Burgess at Bath but he never reformed his tackles which also included the full frontal without arms ...
