Sam Warburton red card in Rugby World Cup Semi Final

Just because it wasn't malicious doesn't mean he shouldn't be sent off!

Was it unfortunate? Yes, did it ruin the game? Yes
Does warburton have a great disciplinary record? Yes
Were Wales the better team? Yes
Was there inconsistency in applying this rule in other games? Yes

Does any of that affect the referees decision? NO!!!!!!!!

The rule is clear, and the ref enforced it. He was dead right. It was a dangerous tackle.

I feel sorry for Warburton and Wales, they were deserved to go through, but really, some of the commentary is pure rubbish. Pieanar even said that the ref should have gone to the television match officials. That shows how knowledgeable he is on this, because you cant go the TMO for this kind of incident! To be honest, Warburton shold have known better than to leave go once he had Clerc upended.
