Weather and Field Conditions

General Pattern of Play
Close contest between two very good squads. Saratoga #2 had demonstrated excellent tackling technique on a number of occasions but had been warned about a 'no-arm' tackle prior to the incident.

Detailed Report of Incident
Mr. Broomquest lined up a big New London flanker (whom he had earlier introduced to his uncompromising tackling) and stopped him in his tracks with a no-arm shoulder charge. I had already issued a warning about this, so I escalated my sanction this time to a yellow card. Mr. Broomquest disagreed with my decision but accepted it.
