Eddie Jones wants to worry how OF will fare playing Championship rugby next season imho. :lol:

Maybe he’ll get a proper inside centre in the England team, who knows?

His last suspension was 4,5 years ago., so despite the uproar, not a serial offender. And all presided over by Mike Hamlin !

Just for the avoidance of any confusion, the Mike Hamlin concerned is not 'our' Mike Hamlin!

Neither severe or light, probably five or six games would be correct and consistent.

LA, that's a shame, a quick google reveals he's a retired lawyer and district judge, and not the legendary no10 !

That’s a joke right? I just don’t see a smiley face.[/quote]

It is his first red card for a dangerous tackle. His technique may well be bad (I personally think he has made a few very dangerous tackles). However in the eyes of the disciplinary panel they cant punish him for tackles that havent been deemed dangerous by previous referees etc.[/quote]

He got banned after the Dan Robson tackle as the panel concluded it was a red card offence. So yes they can punish him for previous tackles which have been deemed to be dangerous, they have just decided not to.

re the Pat Lam rant - I think he could be on a disrepute charge for that - it was effectively an attack on the disciplinary process and whilst I have some sympathy with his line (and frustration), it really isn't an appropriate way to express it!

Not me. I just wanted him castrated :lol:

Farrell has been close on a number of occasions to being yellow / red carded for illegal tackles. He's also lead with his head into tackling opposition players on a few times too. The ban is what it is, but from here on OF won't get away with it anymore. He has to tackle within the Laws of the game now. It's taken a while but he's been caught finally.
