Is this a record?

Kyle Eastmond got a red card on Sunday. He has now been cited for an earlier "tackle" on Ross Chisholm.

Tricky one. If the first had been picked up in time the second wouldn't have happened. The TMO saw the first but I don't think he mentioned it until the second.

I'm sure he'll get done for both. Ban should be lengthy, 4 weeks at least. Whether it'll be reduced to nothing for good behaviour is anyone's guess.

There was some rumour of something nasty said in the build-up, I hope not.

On our site we're downplaying it, but apparently Barnes heard something (racist) and said we'll "sort it out later". Hopefully handbags as the match was played in good spirit

The Wasps thread seems to be based on a single comment by Cookie on one of our threads.

Dont see why that should mean he doesn't get done for both? It's still two red card offences, even if he was only there for the second one because the first was missed.

I'm sure the TMO says he is looking at the first incident when the ball goes to the other side of the pitch. Then when play stops after the second one he Tells Wayne about the first one. I've never seen a player commit two red card offences in 30 seconds before. Should they have lost a second player as well?

What I heard on the ref mic at the match was the Wasps players trying to justify the offences by claiming 'something' was said to upset Eastmond, and WB said "ok well if so it will get sorted out later." i.e. he didn't hear anything.

Surely that would actually reflect even worse on Eastmond though?...i.e. two intentional retaliations rather than just temporarily losing his ability to tackle below the jawline.

In terms of harsh language, Sink did get a ticking off and 10m for turning the air blue when Smith was shoved in the back for walking away with the ball and Kyle went full Hulk-mode...

What did Chis snr and Smith say to him then. Or why if something was said, have we not heard anything about it if so many Wasp players heard it.

Barnes spoke to Ward on at least one occasion about something that Ward had said.

Where has the idea that someone said something racist come from? Given he ended up trying to decapitate the half-Filipino Marcus Smith....

I think it's Chinese whispers. Somebody pointed out that Barnes had said he'd look into what ward said later, somebody else said they hoped it wasn't racist, and now wasps' board are 'downplaying' the outrageous racial slurs.

I think we can all enjoy the use of the phrase Chinese whispers in this context smiling smiley

Cookie hoped that whatever Ward did or did not say was not racist. The collective might of the internet did the rest.

From my admittedly distant view in the East Stand, it looked as if Sinckler's reaction to Eastmond's tackle was rather nasty as well. It appeared to be shoulder charge of sorts, but I couldn't see it clearly enough to make a judgment and the cameras didn't seem to pick it up. Can anyone sitting in the West Stand confirm/deny this?

Seems I've created a storm! The Wasps captain did speak to Barnes about 'something serious that was said', which Barnes in turn spoke to Ward about, telling him it would be looked at after the game. Hopefully it was nothing, hence why no action.

wardy looked completely surprised when pulled about about something he is accused of saying.
