A very physical game with several inexperienced players on both sides. An emphasis on physicality to the detriment of continuity and skill.

Detailed Report of Incident
The ball was knocked back from a Champlain lineout in their half. In the ensuing breakdown Mr. Capobianco neck tackled a Champlain flanker off the ball and drove him to the side of the breakdown and to the ground with his arm fully engaged around the player's neck. I immediately ejected him from the game. This was the culmination of several incidents involving Mr. Capobianco for which he had been spoken to and/or penalized.
