What a lot of nonsense. It was a clear red in the Oz/NZ game because that's the law.

He wasn't falling, he was already low when he took a shoulder charge to the head. Under the law that's a straight red now.

It's a shoulder charge because his arms were behind his body at the moment of contact.

Not sure how trying to make a law to stop people getting brain damage is going to ruin the tournament.
