General Pattern of Play
The game had some brilliant counter attacks, but some sloppy ball carrying and passes as both teams tried to play sevens instead of 15s. Also, there were numerous infringements in rucks. Before halftime, the teams were cordial with other, until halftime when a fight broke out. After ejecting all responsible players, tempers cooled off; however, the sloppy play at breakdowns continued.

Detailed Report of Incident
As WNEC's scrum-half was making a break away to the try zone, Springfield's defense managed to force him towards the touchline. As the scrum-half try to avoid the tackle, Mr. D'Agostino hooked his arm around the back of the Scrum-Half's neck and drove him to the ground. It was clearly a dangerous play; hence, I felt a yellow card was necessary.
