Bath did not do to well in terms of cards at the weekend. The pair; Kahn Fotuali’i and Francois Louw have been cited after 2 separate offences in their game against Harlequins on Saturday.

Fotuali’i has been punished for striking after allegedly hitting Dave Ward in the head, whilst Louw is being charged for a very poor tip tackle.

With Louw’s citing being for a tackling offence, does this prove that the new ruling towards high and dangerous tackles is not having the desired effects? As players are still making such challenges.

Bath will have to go without the pair this weekend in their game against Bristol in what should be a tasty game, as Bristol look to get themselves off the bottom of the table, but it will take something special to push past a strong Bath side.
