This is just ridiculous from a consistency point of view. Tom Francis got banned for Wales in this years' 6 Nations for 8 weeks for brushing Dan Cole's face and making contact in the eye area. Just because Wallabies don't make a referral, can't the citing officer make one of his own? Regardless of whether Franks meant to eye gouge or not, what his his hand doing anywhere near Douglas's face/eye area? Just seems one rule for one and one rule for others.
Yeh I was thinking the same myself . Chris Ashton got a 10 week ban for making contact with the face . Nothing about gouging . It happens regularly on lions yours too . Horwills stamp and the notorious spear tackle on BOD . I think SANZAR really need to get serious about player safety
