Strange that nobody at the ground appeared to see the incident ? I can't remember him being penalised..
Bryce Heem also cited , but I thought that had been dealt with by the ref with a yellow card.

It was on tv, a hand off to the throat area.

Well that incident looked quite innocent to me. RJVR put his hand/arm out for a fend-off and it accidentally went near Hoougard's throat.

It was looked at live as it was mentioned in the commentary. Didnít look great, he certainly connected with forearm on neck, but the 4th official decided it wasnít a penalty during the game

Yeah, I've seen those penalised plenty of times
Don't think it was as bad as a lot though - he raised his arm in contact and the forearm made contact, it's like he ran in charging with the forearm like Ben teo used to at Leinster

I wouldn't be surprised if he was cited but for me it wasn't a red card offence

It was clear in the game and Hougaard was in a spot of bother after the challenge. As we have had DuPreez out for most of the season with a broken adams apple ( accidental ) I was a touch concerned. However he continued as did the Sale player after Heems challenge so I am a bit surprised at the citings.
However I think Bryce may have played hs last game for us which will be a shame.

Just in the league? 6 weeks for accidental contact with the head. Would be interesting to see whatís Heem gets. Clearly worse and it was 100% luck he didnít land on his head.
