Wales international Aled Davies Made received Yellow Card due illegal hit on Sale Sharks scrum-half Faf de Klerk
The Saracens scrum-half Aled Davies was yellow carded for the ‘reckless’ hit.
Commentating for BT Sport, Austin Healey immediately thought it had to be a red. “I think Davies has gone for that challenge. I think it’s a head on head. It’s reckless. There’s no arm, is there?” he declared.
ex-English international Ben Kay added: “If there’s any head contact, he’s in big trouble Davies. He does get nudged by his own player as he’s going in there. That might be the only mitigation.

“He’s actually trying to pull out and Koch almost nudges him into De Klerk. The problem is he is already at a reckless speed. He’s in trouble here.”
