I've watched it now and I have some sympathy for him, as he's clearly trying to free himself rather than a malicious stamp for no reason purely intended to inflict pain. Still, you just can't react like that, and especially so near to the head. Arg player should have got a yellow too though. Not sure what discretion the citing panel have

Rugby authorities don't really see retaliation to other foul play as mitigation; quite the opposite. Silly thing to do and will cost him/us multiple weeks. Pushing and hammering arms with a fist are pretty accepted. This was stupid.

That said, with league rugby back, it's unlikely he would get much game time anyway.

Can't excuse it even though he was being held well away from the play and it wasnt intended to do any damage..  Someone above said that the player holding him should have received a yellow which I agree with.
