Saracens lost to London Irish on Friday night last and the talented back-row player Ben Earl received his first straight red card for a high tackle.
He basically did an ‘Owen Farrell’ on Pearson, leaning in with his shoulder with his arm tucked into his chest when he did. Ben Earl simply had to go, you have to be more careful nowadays with the way you led with your shoulder and rightly so.
Ben Earl walks 🟥
Loses mitigation as he tucks his arm, and therefore hasn't made a legal attempt to tackle.
