England prop Ellis Genge has somehow escaped punishment despite a violent incident with Johnny Sexton in the closing stages of England’s defeat to Ireland on Saturday evening.
Genge was clearly pictured on camera elbowing Sexton in the face multiple times while on the ground with the Ireland captain complaining to referee Mathieu Raynall on the day who decided to ignore his claims despite the fact that Genge admitted it on the spot.
And now somehow even the citing commissioner has decided to overlook the incident.
The deadline has now passed for any more to de done about the incident with officials clearly of the impression that Genge’s assault did not warrant a red card. Baffling stuff.
Sexton: "Sir, he elbowed me in the face."
