Rugby Environment comments and disavows a play seen at Super Rugby Pacific, in the match between two Australian teams. In the match between Queensland Reds and ACT Brumbies There was a play that went viral.
The final score of 52-24 in favor of the Brumbies was anecdotal compared to the action of one player from the winning team. Angus Blythe, a seven-foot-tall, 265-pound second-row runner, ran towards winger Corey Toole. They were in the 9th minute of the match. Toole jumped up to catch a thrown ball. He decided to throw the ball to jump in search of it.
When he wanted to kick, he was hit by Blythe, a high tackle that left the winger in shock. Toole tried to get up and did, but the blow shook him. Two companions approached and stopped him. The play, analyzed in slow motion, shows that Blythe couldn’t block the shot and charged even with his head.
I was surprised by the arbitration decision after seeing the video. The referee took him a yellow card, that is, he left him out of the match for 10 minuteswhen you meet all the parcel.
Doctors examined Toole and it was established that he could not continue to play. The protocol governs which blocks Players with concussions or similar conditions Stay in the field.
now, Blythe may face harsh punishment. Especially when the play went viral. Rugby commentators were spared criticism for this tackle and complained that he was not sent off.
It stipulates that if a violent and unfair game involving physical risk is created, it will result in a yellow card and that within 10 minutes of the penalty it can be reviewed by videoconference to eventually be sent off. This did not happen and has led to criticism of the ruling.
