not so sure about that, hitting him once round the head is clumsy, hitting him again with the other arm is pushing it but then pulling his head back with both arms as he was falling is outright dangerous

I don’t understand what you think Hill has done, you type that as if he has the time to think about that second arm movement based on the point of contact on his first arm.  Hill wraps his arms around as he does as he’s trying to cover the ball to stop Powell scoring, a split second earlier and he probably does this.  I agree he deserved the red card based purely on point of impact but his instinct was to try and stop the try, not an intentional dangerous tackle.
