Title: Lasike red card
Post by: quintastic. on Saturday 09-Feb-2019, 22:55*
Lasike got a straight red for stamping on a player that wouldnt let go of him against Argentina B team tonight, there are some videos on twitter.

Silly boy. Will that rule him out of games for us?

Probably. Don't know what his schedule is. Or where he stamped the bloke.

From the short video online it looks like the stamp was on the back area. Stupid thing to do but wouldn't have come about if players on the ground holding onto/down opponents was refereed properly.

Yes but if you’re a professional rugby player the thing to do is not to react by stamping.

Man is an idiot.

Agree with that too, but sometimes it's human nature to react in the heat of the moment.

Sure but he's a professional and the bloke only had hold of his leg, not his balls.

It's one of those things now which refs don't stop but you can't react too. Correct decision is yellow for player holding, red for reaction. Like the marler one

I haven't seen it. Just generalising. People react, it's human nature.

Totally agree, but you just have to be able not to do it.

Pretty stupid thing to do - but having watched the replay I have a fair amount of sympathy for him - he tries 2 or 3 times to get away from the guy holding on to him.

That looks a bit close to the head and that's what the ref said. If so it's automatic high end entry point - 12+ weeks.

Meh. It's not that bad. more of a push than a stamp. Silly boy though.

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.
