Hughes handed a defender off with his forearm/elbow. Not sure why people were surprised he got penalised. I'm sure there was no intent to hurt, there never is, is there, but if a 20 stone bloke runs into someone and thrusts their rather large forearm into the defender's face, it is going to hurt.

Which demonstrates the point that intent isn't necessary. I still can't fathom how Ward's eye got injured, but it could have been punishable.

I watched the Hughes incident back today. To my mind he delivered a forearm smash to the man trying to stop him. I think T-Bone's point ".. no intent to hurt, there never is, is there?" is right. He deserved to be penalised.

As for Dave Ward, if he'd gone bleating to Luke Pearce he might have got a TMO review and some sanction for Harrison, but that's not Dave Ward's style .. and good on him for that.
