In my opinion the focus on the offence should centre around the movement that the defender makes to effect an "illegal" tackle. As I opined at the time my interpretation of the new law is that Brad should have been Yellow carded (if Parling hadn't been knocked out as a result of the over the shoulder tackle) and Red carded (because he had been) and Baz nothing. Baz didn't move (much) and Parling fell into his shoulder at speed (already concussed) . If players are to be red carded for simply standing their ground we have a serious problem. Do we really want to ask players to jump out of the way?
