Simmonds strike rate is honestly insane
Before this game he was scoring on 10% of his carries (123 carries, 12 tries)
And he's bagged another

I genuinely need someone to explain to me why it’s a red.

If had a look at the laws and guidance framework but I just can’t see how a clash of heads in a tackle that wasn’t high classes as even a pen, let alone a red.

So I’m stumped - if someone can point me to what I’m missing I’d appreciate it.

Tmo didn’t think it was even a pen and the ref ignored him.

Bath

These days, pretty much anything head on head is going to be a red. Same happened to Bath (Williams?) earlier this season in the only other match I've seen (so probably against Glos). Today's was worse (or my memory is worse than I thought)

When its a one-off, it's a nothingness, but if there's consistency about that being red, then it's ridding the game of a high-injury-risk technique

I can see the sense in that but if poor technique is going to become an offence then aren’t they going to have build it into the laws?
The ref‘s view was clearly that Thorley should have got lower but there’s nothing in the laws about that so far as I can see and the actual tackle was legal.

I know do love that stat. Especially with how good a kicker J Simmonds is.

Anyone else agree Simmonds is the ideal 20 for England, England have a issue of not being able to switch up their game plan. Bringing on Simmonds would do that. I remember when he played for England vs Wales he got 24 tackles and vs italy he got 2 class tries. He has that all round ability pace power and workrate.

Maybe needs some power in the team somewhere else as he's lighter but still to good to leave out and could change a game, also used to play 6 with Waldrom at 8.
