Scotland hooker Fraser Brown was sin-binned in the opening minutes of the England and Scotland match this past weekend. Many felt the hooker was fortunate to come away with only the yellow, after he lifted and dumped Daly in a dangerous tackle.
In his decision for the yellow card, referee Mathieu Raynal explained the reason being that Daly had landed on "the top of his back", thus he decided against the red card.Â
Either way, the Tackle insured that Scotland would be facing an uphill battle from the very start. Given the magnitude of the match and despite some genuine injury concerns, it seemed Scotland had a chance of making some serious waves with a good showing.
The Glasgow Warriors hooker's mistake was not something the visitors could afford though, and unfortunately this was but a small sign of the match to come, as England went on to hammer Scotland 61-21 to retain the Calcutta Cup and the Six Nations title.
Brown is not out of the woods yet, as he's been cited for the tackle and will face a disciplinary hearing today (Tuesday) that could potentially see him miss their final match, against Italy.
As for Daly, he will continue to be monitored throughout the week for a suspected concussion that forced him from the field before half time.
