Dylan may be an unexpected agent of Karma,but I suspect his popularity has just soared in France. If he gets more than the week that SOB received for his unprovoked pre-meditated thuggery at RWC it would be a travesty.

The assessment of the seriousness of the Player’s conduct shall be determined by reference to the following features:

(a)     whether the offending was intentional or deliberate;

(b)     whether the offending was reckless, that is the Player knew (or  should have known) there was a risk of committing an act of Foul Play;

(c)     the gravity of the Player’s actions in relation to the offending;

(d)     the nature of the actions, the manner in which the offence was committed including part of body used (for example, fist, elbow, knee or boot);

(e)     the existence of provocation;

(f)      whether the Player acted in retaliation and the timing of such;

(g)     whether the Player acted in self-defence (that is whether he used a reasonable degree of force in defending himself);

(h)     the effect of the Player’s actions on the victim (for example, extent of injury, removal of victim Player from the game);

Accidental, but forceful. Not an honest attempt at a tackle but more an attempt to dislodge the ball. So it did carry an element of risk. Concussed player, which any panel will treat as serious.

Think that about covers it.

Yes obrien dropped suddenly and that's why it happened.

Look at my post above.  4 week minimum as a starting point

Don't see how he complies with any of those points ?

He was so unlucky to get banned for the George thing pre WC. Any coach worth his salt and not an awful coward like Lancaster would have looked after him.

I used to think he was a rat. The gouge and back chat to Barnes were unforgivable. However he

Maybe the fact that kiwis get a golden pass somehow?.

Despite being the best rugby team by a huge distance and basically redefining how rugby is played somehow you guys also get favourable disciplinary results.

BOD being pole axed in lions, callards head. Fekitoa etc.

You guys are kings and don't need the extra help!

It's always 'thuggery' when the auld spud boys are involved Wink

I think SOB dropped a feeler. He tried telling the feeler to keep it for the showers afterwards with his own teammates.... but Pape liked him too much and a flooring was required. Wink Do you approve of playground fondlers, Dubbelyew? Shocked

Strike to the head. Thats a 4 week starting point for a ban. I expect him to get more for his previous. If it was deliberate it would be an 8 week starting point

Agreed. When Sean O'Brien lashed out at the player from the other team for no reason, it was clear to all concerned that it was for no reason at all, and that he had been planning prior to the match that he would hit the player at that point in the game. This is the exact same as Hartley who arrived accidentally on the pitch and was forced to tackle Sean O'Brien because he had the ball. If O'Brien did not have the ball, this would not have happened.

Clearly Karma says that if there is to be no incidents in a rugby match on a player, then the player should ensure not to touch the ball.

Absolutely a red going by current laws. I like Hartley I really thought he'd turned over a new leaf. However in his career thus far he has received 6 suspensions totaling 54 weeks of bans not including this incident. I cant imagine the citing commission go easy on him and i would also imagine it would put his captaincy at stake for both club and country.

Good win for Leinster and i hope SOB (how good has he been since coming back from a year off?) and Carbery are ok. We've hammered Saints away before and lost the home match so need to guard against any complacency.

The consistently excellent form of Jamie George is more of a threat to his England captaincy than this incident.

Rugby cannot continue to condone hits to the head on the basis that it might have been accidental, whatever next....I thought his head was the ball guv?

Hartly went in with a swinging arm to dislodge the ball, by adopting this aggressive high risk approach the onus must be on him to ensure that his opponent is not injured. With his past disciplinary record he should have known better.

Don't think anyone is arguing it's not a red. General concensus is that it wasn't deliberate and should be a low end ban. Debate is on length of ban and fall out.

4 weeks is the starting point for a strike to the head. He won't get any reduction for previous good behaviour and might get a couple of weeks added on as SOB had to go off.

Will be at least 4 weeks, but given previous could be more

Listening to Mallinder after the game got the impression he is fed up with Hartley.

He made a point of saying what a fantastic job Hayward has done and that he expects internationals coming back to make a big positive contribution...(unsaid implication being Hartley had let the club down down)

It's certainly not what they needed from a senior international coming off the bench. I'm sure Mallinder was annoyed Hartley was so rash. He normally defends his players to the hilt see the bans handed to Brookes anf Clark in recent weeks.

I don't think Hartley and the coaching team see eye to eye anyway to be honest.

With the way we are playing this sort of discipline is the last thing we need. Fuming at Hartley. So was Haywood by the look of the clip.

But I think that's the point, the way you are playing under Mallinder is pretty awful. This is a distraction, one I expect he'll be happy to use, but the reality is you need fresh ideas and a new coaching set up. Mallinder is taking you backwards, and I'm not convinced he's ever offered much beyond developing a big pack with a solid set piece and killer rolling maul.

Yes it's all O'Briems fault for dropping suddenly.  

No way can he claim that his swinging arm was aimed at the ball as O'Brien was holding the ball close to his chest and he had his back to Hartley! Haymaker to the head and from behind, it looked a really cheap shot, I can see him getting a really long ban.

IMO - Hartley should be stripped of the England captains role. He isn't the role model we want to see for the young kids.

Don't think he will be though...

But think he's blown any chance of being the Lions captain now. Gats wont put up with that from a capt. He expects them to lead by example. He may have even blown any chance of being the first choice for the Lions test, or even being selected. Lets not forget, Gats left the last England capt at home.

It was a clear as day cheap shot. Even if SOB had stayed up right it would have been a swinging arm to the bottom of neck or upper back. He wasn't drving the shoulder in or wrapping his arms to make a tackle at all. It was just a violent swing of the right arm into the back of a player who then dropped to the ground (as it happens quite often when another player has your legs, something Hartley could see). Should be a minimum of the 8 weeks, with an additional 5 or more for previous. It was dirty and cowardly, throw the book at the scumbag.

They can't add more, but they might not take anything off for remorse, non-contesting the charge or previous good record.


Whatever happens at the citing happens. Surprised Mallinder threw his guy under the bus post match. To say he did it to that extent means he has lost the dressing room or else is trying to drive a wedge between Hartley and the squad.

If I was Lancaster would I want to take over a club in this state? He famously punished Hartley before, if he takes over from Mallinder Hartley could be on the road (Toulon, Toulouse, Bath, where could he go).

Leinster were without their first choice 10 for the game and lost their replacement 10 early in the game. Ross Byrne did ok, but it was shocking how poor Saints are this season that they didn't bully Leinster at that stage. Thought Henshaw spent most of his time looking after the rookie outhalf which left him quiet in other aspects of his game. After losing Kearney we had 2 very inexperienced wings but again Saints didn't pick up on that weakness.

There has to be a response from that Saints pack this week.

As I said above it was a big risk if Lancaster took Hartley to the WC as he would only have had 2 fit hookers for the first match.

Saints lineup is very much a concentrate on the league one.

That's when you (as in Leinster) have to concentrate even more. These 'we're going to let you win' selections can lull opponents into a false sense of security.

Not this time, matey.

Mallinder has some real heavy lifting to do in the Premiership to salvage the season and, possibly, his job. I don't recall Saints putting out non-competitive teams in the Euro Rugby, even when there was no chance of advancing. Sadly, the latest, and most obvious, sign thing are not rosey in The Rose of Shires.

It's not like an English team to put out the second string. A win versus an inexperienced Leinster team could kick start their confidence. Bit disappointing for the fans shelling out for tickets, especially given it's an expensive time of year. Hopefully Leinster trample them.

Lancaster was garbage full stop. Rugbys steve McClaren a good coach but lacks personality to be head coach. He should have taken Hartley as he would have missed one game. Also he should never have been banned.

I hated Lancaster from day 1 for 3 reasons

1. He was a petty school teacher who never played a decent level
2. He picked players out of position consistently
3. He was matey with all players and let them rule roost. They were unfit
