Anyone know what the upper and lower recommendations are for striking an opponent with the head are? Would expect them to be high but him to get the bottom end possibly reduced more as he is seldom in trouble and no doubt regrets it.

Tee once spoke to Dyls so punishment will be doubled whilst the skipper is guilty by association !

He's bound to get a longer suspension than we all think is reasonable !

He plays for Northampton and has tattoos, he would get 6 months at least for sneezing!

Most recent suspensions for our guys (not that common it has to be said) have been fairly reasonable.

4 weeks seems to be the low end looking at previous cases. He certainly struck the player with his head but with no real likelihood of any serious damage, so anything under four weeks would be good any more would be harsh as I see it.

Entry Level is 4 weeks. One week off for good record and guilty plea. my bet is 3 weeks suspension not to include weeks when no game scheduled.

I saw him touch the player's nose with his head - no way would I call it a strike.

When you see what goes unpunished these days, this was a non-event even allowing for the 'letter of the law' brigade. If you want to see some serious foul play then look at Fraser Dingwall last friday night.

Could he argue that itís a Maori greeting?

Common sense should say the red card was sufficient penalty as it pretty much lost us the game. They donít really deal in common sense so am expecting 4-6 weeks with some allowance for guilty, precious record, etc.

well that right hook from Salesi Maafu that floored Tom Youngs didn't get much of a ban.
I however expect between 3 and 6 weeks

Best home game in years. We should punch tigers more often. *
