After pulling off his headgear he very clearly put his hand back into the ruck in the area of where the other guys face was. Now you can say there wasn't any intention to gouge I'll accept that, but what do you think his intention was then? Certainly wasn't to wipe his sweaty brow!

Well, to me it looked like he was trying to push scrum cap back over face (guessing here but maybe in a "never touched him guv! It came off on it's own!" kind of way). You can see he still has scrum cap in his paw when his hands go near the eyes. Had he really been going for eyes he'd have dropped it, not be holding it still.

It won't be a popular view but I think you're right. It did seem odd that when his hand was over the face the second time, he was still holding the scrum cap.

I do wonder if he was simply told to plead guilty and show contrition. In his place I'd have done the same, as trial by media had pretty much condemned him anyway. You only have to look at Luamanu pleading not guilty and having the book thrown at him to see how it works.

As for the comment about whining players, made by arniepie, I agree with a lot of that. Maybe Yarde should bleat like mad next time he gets knee-dropped, or a mid-air forearm to the face...
