World Rugby: Immediate change to Red Card decisions
Faithful_City 30 August, 2019 16:23
NEWS: World Rugby has announced a minor amendment to the Television Match Official (TMO) protocol within Law 6 to provide the match official team with greater decision-making support when applying the high tackle sanction framework for dangerous shoulder charges and high tackles.
Operational immediately, it will be mandatory for the TMO to be involved in the verification process to confirm any red card decisions which are linked to the refereeís use of the framework as follows:

4.6 If the referee determines that a dangerous high tackle or shoulder charge warrants a red card, then the referee must firstly verify the decision with the TMO. Both the referee and TMO should use the High Tackle Sanction Framework to determine whether a red card is the correct sanction.

Thatís about right
