Weather and Field Conditions
Beautiful day for rugby with partly cloudy skies and temps in the mid 60s on a well maintained pitch.

General Pattern of Play
One sided affair with Providence taking an early lead and never looking back. Burlington's failed tackles worsened their woes.

Detailed Report of Incident
Late in the first half, after the two teams' front rows had a couple of back and forth arguments, I pulled both captains aside to admonish them about controlling their teammates' composure. Not 9 minutes into the 2nd half, Mr. Peck and Mr. Medina of Providence (see separate report on him) continued to shove each others' heads after the ball had been played away from the prior ruck. I called play to a stop, alerted both captains that these two players had obviously not gotten the message from earlier, and yellow carded them both.
