In isolation, fair enough. In the context of what happened to Ellis, not so.

At least he will only miss what are essentially 3 "token" games which will not progress our requirements for the Premiership.

Yeah, missed two euros we're out of and one pointless cup, so could be worse.

Exactly. He would probably have been rotated for at least one of those.

I think it in itself is probably fair... but I'm a bit bemused why, if that warrants three weeks, then the hit on Ellis doesn't. After all, if it's "outcome not intent", then didn't Ellis go off quite quickly after that? And the intent wasn't especially great!

Ellis is out for 3/4 weeks with a hyper extended elbow according to the Chron injury update yesterday, whereas the hit appeared to be on his ribs and not arm fro what I remember. I've not reviewed the hit since though.

I watched the full match yesterday and it was definitely his arm that he clutched immediately afterwards.

Ah ok then. I guess it should have at least been referred to the citing commission for consideration.
