I think it was a red under current laws but in the highlights programme there was another example(can’t remember which game) which was much worse as it was a shoulder in a ruck into the back of a guys neck. Zero action on that one which makes the Lwas a bit of a joke

It was Michael Rhodes in the Bath v Sarries game. On the basis of the SK incident consistency (yes I know) dictates that he should have seen red also. Instead the officials didn't even review it. Make of that what you will.
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!

I hadn't seen that. Good. Let's see whether the disciplinary panel can be consistent for once.

why is it that the outcome of the hearing is declared as being a 3 week ban
It was ruled a 3 game ban, only lazy journos and the ill informed called it a 3 week ban.

This really highlights the inconsistency in refereeing. Unfortunately, the standards do not seem to be improving. There are very few premiership, or international, referees, whom I respect. This is such a fundamental aspect of the game that the powers-that-be would be well advised to concentrate on improving it, rather than tinker with competition formats.

Therein lies the problem. Rugby is a game which has taught people to respect the ref.

Sometimes I think the referee should be yellow or red carded!

Rhodes given three week ban, free to play again 2nd April.

Sarries must have more games in the same time frame as us?

Disciplinary panel judge the two offences the same?

Agreed but the adjudicators do not listen, after his match last Friday @ Sale we see Matthew Carley as the International Referee on Saturday Italy v France with Owens & Brace (Ire) + TMO Hughes. Perhaps it will be an Italian win! :smt013

technically the Premiership cup is a different competition so why should it be counted as a fixture in the calculation of Rhodes ban? All we supporters want is clear and accurate information and a level playing field.

I'm not going to suggest that the disciplinary process is perfect but to put it clearly and accurately:

Rhodes is banned from playing in his club's next 3 games.
Kalamafoni is banned from playing in his club's next 3 games.

just ban people for a certain number of matches instead of saying weeks anyway
