Sam Warburton red card in Rugby World Cup Semi Final

We all love big,impressive and massive hits - but there is no place in the sport for dangerous, lift tackles like that where the player is tilted beyond the horizontal and dropped on his neck.

Huge respect to Mr. Rolland for making the right decision. Red card - regardless of whether its a schoolboy match, a club match, or a rugby world cup semifinal, and regardless of whether it happened in the first minute or last.

With due respect to Francois Pienaar, it doesn't matter that Sam Warbuton was the "one of the cleanest players in the tournament" and certainly it can't matter that he's the captain. Referees have got to penalize such tackles strictly to eliminate them from the game we love - and Mr. Rolland did just that.
