People Are Pretty Divided Over This Manu Tuilagi Red Card Against Wales

Red card.

England are 2020 Six Nations Triple Crown champions for the first time since 2016 thanks to a 33-30 win over Wales at Twickenham this evening.

The hosts were 33-16 ahead at one stage but a late fightback from Wales saw them put some serious gloss on the scoreline. The away side were 20-9 down at half-time but battled on in the second half.

Joe Marler made headlines for his rather interesting ‘tussle’ with Wales lock Alun Wyn Jones but the big talking point since full-time has been the Manu Tuilagi’s red card for a dangerous tackle on George North.

Referee Ben O’Keeffe discussed the decision in length with his TMO and in the end, it was decided that Tuilagi’s shoulder hit on North’s head warranted a red card despite the fact that the Wales winger was so low when the hit came in.

The Virgin Media lads reckon Tuilagi is a “serial offender” and to be fair they’ve got a point.

Elsewhere, things are pretty divided.

Tuilagi appears to attempt a wrap but fails. Either way, people are divided on the decision. Have a look for yourself below.
