The Higginbotham red card has to be one of the softest I've ever seen. Yes by the letter of the law you can make a case but soon we'll be playing 7's (and I'm from NSW so always happen to see Queensland lose)

I agree with DickieE. When will players realise that trying to hurt the opposition with no arms tackles has no place in the game. Underhill for England deserve YC, and if it had been a little higher and involved head, then would warrant RC.

the contentious one for me was the spear tackle a few minutes later. Maybe the ref didn't want 2 RCs in one game?

Agree. That looked worse to me. Basically I feel if you need to look at something in super slo-mo it's generally not a red card. I'm not saying it should be open slather and no issues with a yellow for Higginbotham but still feel it was not a red
