Straight Red Card in Rugby.
Nothing ruins a game more than a straight red card. When a straight red card is given on a tip tackle that isn’t that dangerous… that really pisses me off! Something needs to be done about this shit.
Last week we had two straight red cards that dramatically changed the games. It took me back to the epically ridiculous decision in the 18 minutes of a World Cup semi-final to give a straight red card on the Welsh team captain, Sam Warburton. You think referees would be a bit more lenient after seeing that shitty decision.
We had a pathetic red card for Cardiff Blues scrumhalf Lloyd Williams. He turns the player so he lands on his team’s side, great play. But it wasn’t a pretty tackle and he gets red carded. Before that game we had Chris Hala’ufia straight red card for his tackle on Seb Jewell. It was an outrageous decision for a perfectly legitimate BIG tackle.
Straight red cards are awful decisions; referees really need to stop over-policing these incidents and start looking at other areas which are still bringing down the game.
