The player's boot makes contact, the studs do not.

It's tough call but very rarely not a Red.

If the studs made contact with the chest, it would be 100% red for me. Where it's the side of the foot, not so much. Reckless, sure. I just don't see excessive force in that play.
I suppose, depending on his angle, maybe the ref thought it was studs into the chest.
