Barnes had a brutal game, no consistency in his interpertation at all. You have to ask why when he awarded the penalty try did he not send someone to the sin bin as he had just a few minutes earlier given Wales a final warning and his decision to penalise the Irish in the scrum in the last play of the game when they had won the ball against the head beggars belief, even Jonathan Davies was lost for words on the BBC. And you wonder why the Irish complained when they heard the man who only sin binned a man for deliberately kneeing a player in the back was gonna replace Steve Walsh!!?? »
It was a cheap shot, he deserves at least double the amount of time that heaslip will be out injured. He can be clearly seen eyeing up Heaslip. Lets not forget that the man fractured 3 vertebrae, could have been a paralysing result, should be treated similarly to someone deliberately spear tackling an opponent, could have been a life shattering result. »
An absolute legend, we were lucky to have seen him play. A beautiful tribute to the man from not only his friends and colleagues but also from his "enemies". Just goes to prove what a great game rugby is.
