I am not sure what anyone's view of this is, but I am not sure how I have not seen any citing of this incident, Haskell IMHO should have been red carded for taking a player by the throat like he did.

Etsebeth got a suspension for a dummy head butt..head high tackles get red carded at times, but grabbing a guy by the throwat with both hands and that is after an elbow was put to his throat. I can assure you if this was an EOYT and that was a SA or NZ player doing that to a pom, he would be red carded.

True, but back in the day that wasn't even a penalty. Consistency will remain a problem until some rich club owner takes matters to a real court instead of an judicial enquiry.
