Here we see a high tackle after being stepped by the attacking player and this has seen the Australian grab a hold of the hair and pull the player to ground.
The tackle itself for us potentially a yellow as the attacker had earned the space and was beyond him. Then to use the hair to 'scrag' the player and bring to deck is dangerous.
This ticks many of the boxes for a dangerous and given the location on the pitch where this occurred, we would like to have seen a yellow produced here.
Anyone thinking different?
