With regards to the biff at the end, looks like the French forward gave him a smack in the chops on the ground after a really good tackle in the first place and Ellis responded. Don't see much of that these days (the French forward seemed genuinely surprised when Ellis got up swinging) and they'll both probably end up with lengthy bans.
I did notice this as it was Hardaker's only involvement in the entire sodding game
5 for Ellis and 3 for Dezaria. I just don't get that at all. They were both guilty of punching, but Dezaria smacked him in the chops when he was prone on the floor. If Ellis had stayed down, would Dezaria still have only got 3 matches? It does sort of encourage players to stay down if that's the case. <shrug>
I've now seen the Singleton late tackle. They got that one right under the current rules. Stupid, needless penalty (and subsequent ban) to give away. He had loads of time to pull out of the challenge, it wasn't like the McGilvray one where he couldn't do anything else.
It will all settle down in a couple of rounds. The new interpretations are usually binned by then
