CPD East: Army vs Ohio State

Army stormed into Columbus and unleashed a lightning fast attack that the Buckeyes could not keep pace with. Uiki Leatigaga, who was hurt in the beginning of the season, continues to give opponents all sorts of trouble out wide. Do not miss Army's eightman, David Geib, hurdle of a Buckeye defender while scoring a 40 meter try. Guaranteed POTW candidate.

Army: 57
Ohio State: 15

As impressive as it is hurdling a player like that, it is also illegal in rugby and dangerous play that should have been penalized.

I think you may be right, but what rule would you cite? I don't see anything in the rule book specifically addressing the issue

I wasn't sure which rule either, and apparently referee's aren't (http://www.rugbyrefs.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6934)! I would call it dangerous play, but the posts in that forum bring up some other possibilities.
