Lot's of pack centric pick and go, and pod style attack. Some open field attack was occasional.

Detailed Report of Incident
1st half was clean by both sides, but by and well into 2nd half both sides were skirting the line of foul play in various scenarios. This stomping event was reminiscent of the "old days" of letting the tackler know they are killing the ball by not rolling away and I did not observe specific malice. Regardless of whether it was legal once upon a time is irrelevant. I didn't believe a mere penalty would have driven home the severity of the infraction and a warning was issued pre-match concerning foul play.
