@davidiablo you have read it here first - the definition of legal tackles will be changed as soon as a well known and well liked player's career is ended by a similar head high tackle ...

Wow, somewhat of a surprise, given the footage shown during the game! We were obviously given a selective view by the local producer...
It reminds me a bit of the question posed to an engineer, a lawyer and an accountant, what is 2 + 2? The engineer referred to scientific studies when he answered 4, the lawyer mentioned a few court cases when he said 4, but the accountant just asked - what do you want it to be? Perhaps biased television producers have a similar approach?
Or is it a case of some sighting officers that are just not up to the task while others are overzealous? E.G. Why was the player not sighted that put a Rebels player on a stretcher with a high tackle? Perhaps because he used his arms? Does that legalise high tackles now?
Also interesting to note the lack of any action taken against Liam Messam clearly punching Francois Hougaard shortly before halftime, perhaps another case of selective editing? Or perhaps a biased sighting officer?
