Detailed Report of Incident
With less than a minute to go, Harvard had been shown a yellow card for a dangerous high tackle. Upon restart, Princeton chose to tap and go. Harvard #8, Jason Steyn made contact with the Princeton ball carrier, lifted him past vertical, and brought him to ground head first with the Princeton player making initial contact with the ground on his head/neck/shoulder area. The whistle was blown immediately. While there appeared no intent to injure, the tackle met all the elements of a red card tip tackle offense. #8 was shown a red card.
