Don't mean to cause any upset and we are all entitled to our views but.. When I look at that video I see a player (Verga) who gets a couple of minor but annoying contacts in his back; loses the ball and pretty much at the same time swings his stick in the direction of the ball (almost in an instintive hope of contacting the ball). His stick hits the pitch and rebounds up into van Ass's face. I can see 2 different swing trajectories; one before the stick hits the pitch and one after. I'm not convinced he had any intention of casusing any damage and I'm not convinced he was overly reckless. Now whether or not I would have been able to see any of that in real time is another issue entirely.
