Weather and Field Conditions
Fine sunny afternoon. Match played on the natural grass pitch at Roger Williams. Pitch was soft and although soaked, there was no standing water.

General Pattern of Play
Closely contested first half, with the wet pitch leading to several knock-ons and poor ball control. Second half was more open affair with fewer mistakes.

Detailed Report of Incident
St. Michael's had spread the ball out to their backs and were driving toward the line near the five meter mark. As one Roger Williams player made a form tackle to bring down a St. Michael's back, the Roger Williams full back ran in, lowering his shoulder and tried to drive the St. Michaels back out of bounds. As the tackle assist made no effort to wrap, I whistled play dead and issued him a yellow card.
