To my eyes if there was contact it was so faint a 5 yr old wouldn't of flinched at it and if i was the ref after viewing it, i would of sent both of them Robbie and Benji to the bin for wasting my time and deliberately playing for a penalty.
If penalties were given for these two tackles then 75% of tackles should be penalised. To most people it might sound like i'm not a WT fan which i of course am, but i'm a RL fan first and foremost and i call it like i see it whether it's a player from my team or not.
I didn't like what i saw on both of these occasions from both of these leaders in our team.
Sometimes players go down when the hit possibly looks like nothing and also the reverse you think the player hit isn't getting up and the player gets up no problem.

It's hard to tell but Robbie and Benji don't normally do that sort of stuff and neither do any of the other Tigers players.
But if it was Ennis and Soward well that's a different story.
