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

<p style=”text-align: left;”>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.

He is absolutely no where near the ball , he had the whole body to aim for , it’s not even as if Powell  was stooping, he was upright and still looking backwards at the ball

Hill got nothing but his head with both arms, he could have easily wrapped his right arm around the torso in a grab movement,  instead he had them both high around the head and made absolutely no attempt to go anywhere near the body, arms or ball
