Correct. If all the reds that have been issued for high tackles were changed to yellows I reckon there would barely be a whimper from fans. This is just a case in point.

Just a pen, as it was reffed in IRE v NZ yesterday.
Initial point of contact was the chin.

Which others had stress for you? The All Blacks were in complete control for the duration yesterday, Ireland were no where. Then you last had a challenge against the Saffas at the start of the pool.

It’s amazing that everytime something goes wrong with the French play the hen look the most dangerous. #frenchflair

How often do players, with the ball in their breadbasket, get tackled to their knees and hold onto the ball and try and drive forward again.

There is always stress in knock out rugby. Last night's game against Ireland was very stressful in the lead up and in the 1st half. And even when we had a decent lead i was stressing about injuries, cards etc.

Wynn Jones was down after that ruck. You could hear some screaming at him “Get up Alun! Get up Alun!”

Yeah, not going to complain about it but fairly generous by the ref there.
