Weather and Field Conditions
It was played on a grass field that was a bit soggy from the previous night down-pour. It was one of the best rugby-days in April with temperatures in the low-70s, a decent amount of sun, and a lite breeze.

General Pattern of Play
Providence attacking at North Shore's 5m.

Detailed Report of Incident
At the 38th minute, Providence was attacking at the North Shore 5m. A North Shore player deliberately didn't roll-away and killed the ball.

Allowing for Providence to take quick advantage of the penalty, I let the quick tap happen instead of stopping play and applying sanction for a professional foul. Providence took the quick tap and the ball-carrier was immediately tackled by a North Shore player who didn't retreat at all.

Play was stopped, there was a conversation with the North Shore Captain regarding the entire incident, and the offending player (Red #4) was suspended (Yellow Card) for a professional foul (not retreating).
