Dont see anything wrong with that! Trimble didnt really need to do what he did and williams reacted as anyone thats been face-palmed would have done, and landed a couple of crackers. Ref was right to sin bin them however it was possibly the one correct decision he made in that game! I hope the game is reviewed due to Allain Roland's poor refereeing!! Also a little disappointed in tommy bowe coming in at the end! He has enough experience to know better than that! Anyway on to the final! SUFTUM!

I'm not surprised at the reaction from Williams. Trimble had tackled him off the ball and given a bit of hands to the face a few minutes earlier.

Rolland really was awful in this game. People focus on a few contentious decisions he's made over the years, but every once in a while he has an absolute stinker. This was one of them.

Yellow card for Williams only, for x3 punches thrown in response to a minor face palming

I'd have thought you'd be screaming for a life time ban for Williams "x3 punches thrown" surely this is far more horrendous than some of the weak incidents that you have had labelled as red cards.

Roland was very poor. Although Scarlets weren't at their best, they would have found it difficult to get anything from the game even if they were with Roland in charge.

Williams definitely deserved a yellow, thought it was slightly harsh on Trimble but probably the right call. Trimble cleared out his man but didn't need the palm in the face, however I have seen a lot worse going on at the bottom of a ruck and people have just got on with it, thought Williams overreacted a bit, seems like he let Trimble get to him and saw red.

Meh handbags, yellow card to both at the most... I wouldn't be phased if it was left at just a penalty.

Should have been a straight red for Liam Williams. A very lairy and dirty player always goes way over the top.
