The dirty stuff from Cardiff

The dirty stuff from Cardiff

On Saturday we saw Wales take the Six Nations championship in a historic match for all the right reasons. Records were broken, milestones were achieved, and both teams played some good rugby.

There were two notable blotches on the perfect day though, namely Lee Byrne taking a forearm in the face from Damien Traille, and Gavin Henson getting to grips with French flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo .

The first incident was a bit of a strange one, with Byrne giving Traille some kind of push with the arm, then Traille showing him how it's done. The funniest part of all of it being Brian Moore's comment. 'Footballer.'

Gavin Henson's tackle that got him ten minutes in the bin was a bit more malicious, or perhaps even clumsy. Whatever the intention and outcome, it was dirty and a player of his quality should know better. It was so blatantly high that Ouedraogo actually almost snuck underneath it.

Result aside, I thought some of you would like to see these incidents again, and mainly, have a chuckle at another Brian Moore classic.
