Bans to stop dangerous/sloppy tackling that causes major injuries is fine.

Reading the report it looks like they've found him guilty on very similar grounds to Boudebza - leaving his feet which makes him lose control of the tackle and it's that which made the tackle unsafe and the cause of the injury.

That's just a tackle. An unfortunate injury, to be sure. But it's just a tackle. The decision to penalise the tackler is so stupid as to put at risk the viability of rugby league as a contact sport.

It was a tackle. That's it. Someone needs to stop this nonsense fast. He's not trying to injure him, he's trying to tackle him. The collision and fall is awkward, but it is not in any way either unusual or against any law in the game.

We need someone with a brain at the RFL to get a grip on this rapidly. Is there anyone?

Correct!

Just seen the tackle on the Sky Sports website and agree wholeheartedly with Roy Haggerty. Absolutely nothing illegal in that tackle at all. A 2 match ban is a travesty for the game.
