I don't understand the rules well enough to comment on the fouls - I look forward to hearing from more knowledgeable readers. It was a very exciting match to watch, though. Brutal sport!

Clear red cards. No question. Once you make contact with the head irrespective of what the defending player does, it’s a red card. Samoan players tackling technique is terrible otherwise players will be killed. The referee, Poite, made a complete cock-up by backtracking on his initial decision to give a red. It’s not up to the TMO......he can advise but ultimately the ref should’ve gone with initial decision.

Huge pressure on refs now in coming weeks given what World Rugby have come out with. There WILL be red cards in the next week or so.
