The thing is where is the common sense? This wasn't a dangerous tackle
Lolwut. I have no idea where the common sense is.

The Welsh really aren't letting this one go, I thought it was a fair enough decision. Most of the time you'll only get a yellow but if you don't tip a player over in mid-air and drop them on their head then you don't risk getting a red card. Easy solution.

I don't really know the rules too well, just like the England team, but I also don't see the big fuss over the red card. It was a bit harsh at most and Wales had plenty of opportunities to win but bottled it, again. So yea a pretty good result really, shame I was busy in Warsaw so didn't get to see it live. Would have been rather fun.

I think the "big fuss" was made by people who wanted to see a good contest with 15 against 15, rather than have the rules properly applied and have the the right decision made but reduce the match to less of a spectacle.

And by people who'd seen the same infringement punished with a yellow for the rest of the tournament.
