I'm just pointing out that McDonagh bleeding is no indication of the kind of hit it was. A player with no visor experiencing exactly the same hit wouldn't have been bleeding.
Okay, then I guess I may have it wrong. My understanding was that if a head injury was apparent (bleeding from the head would be a head injury) on a boarding, that a 5 minute major would be imposed.
