Detailed Report of Incident
Dartmouth attacking, inside the Penn State 22.

After the Dartmouth fly half had passed the ball, PSU #6 tackled him late. He lifted him and dropped him onto his head/shoulder area. I clearly saw the offense. I played advantage, which resulted in a Dartmouth try, while Dartmouth's trainer attended to the fly half.

After the conversion I called over the PSU captain and #6, and asked them to wait while I verified what I had seen with AR Sam Hoar who again agreed with my observations.

I returned to the captain and #6, detailed what I had seen, and issued the red card. I told the PSU captain that I felt his players were not playing in control and that he needed to manage this.
