Straight red, no question. Should be more than a couple of games too. Catalans yellow a little harsh I thought though

Yes some Saints fans have said that but some other Saints fans , including me , agree with the red card and with the classification.
Apparently the tariff is 4 to 8 matches I think it's his first sending off so I expect him to get 4 or 5 games

It was a St Helens player sent off therefore naturally there will be some fans with red v glasses who believe it was not as bad as it was. The same would apply to every other club who has a player sent off. The majority see it for what it was.

Spot on!

FWIW I thought it was a straight red and have no issue with a 4 match ban...taking his previous disciplinary record into account I think 4 games rather than 8 is the right decision (and not often you can say the RFL disciplinary panel get it right).

My only (potential) issue is will every player committing a similar tackle receive a 4 - 8 match ban throughout the season? Or is this another example of starting harsh on suspensions and will go softer/more lenient as the season progresses
