So what freddie did is basically approx half as bad as gouging

Yes it is. If you need a reason check out this tackle from a few years back

Whilst that was truly sickening I'm not sure that the two incidents were comparable?

Why not? The player hits the ground in a similar way. The result is obviously not comparable but the point is it only takes inches for that to happen.

You missed my point... maybe I'll remember the sarcasm reminder next time.
I dont dispute the 3 weeks for freddie. He did drive the guy down.
I was having a go at only 7 weeks for gouging

(Interestingly, watching tjat League clip, i dont doubt the outcome was really bad, but it didn't to my strained eye look maliciously bad... bad result but not purposely driven onto his head in the way some occurred in say NFL.
This takes us back to the 'outcome based' operation of tje RFUs kangaroo system, in the case of Stinkler's gouging rather than the act itself.

I agree, Preston, He is not a violent man but nowadays the end result, quite rightly IMHO, is now taken into account
