Something tells me you weren’t taking the question seriously.942
the rwc will not actually be completed until 2026 because of the multiple DPs and their multiple appeals
and in the style of post drug revelation Tour De Frances, in 2038 Chile will be announced RWC 2023 winners on the count back.
1 every 4 games sounds about right. I'll be a bit more pessimistic and go with 16. I don't think any ref or FPRO wants to be seen as a softie.

We need a 20min replacement so that there is at least a cap on the impact to the game
Happy to seeSo you "accidentally" injure the Captain of the other team, who is possibly the best player of the tournament, and he has to go off injured for the rest of the game.
Meanwhile the offending team only lose a player for 20 minutes?
Not for me. Red is red. The impact on the game was caused by the offending player, intentionally or not.
Yes. Coaches and players have to do better.You have a point and, yes, I am over egging it by calling them all accidents
But we are not in a good place and something has to change as the current laws and protocols arent working.
Why did this work for spear tackles, but hasn't for head contact?Yes. Coaches and players have to do better.
After the Warburton red, the spear disappeared. Players and coaches can, therefore, adjust tackle technique.
In this case, they are chooisng not to. They bear the consequences.
Without digging out the flowchart I think the officials got these right. The head-on-head clash was worth a YC and the shoulder to head worth a RC. IMO.japan v samoa tonight. Two bunkers for head contact.
One ends up yellow, one red. The reasoning on the YC was something about njo hiugh level of danger.
Frankly, that's a cop out. Head contact is either dangerous or its not. permitting head contact because "that wasn't REALLY dangerous" creates an environment whereby head contact can still be accepted. But its still head contact.
