Sam Warburton red card in Rugby World Cup Semi Final

This decision by the quarter final referee should never be allowed to happen again. It has made a mockery of the world cup. In future there must be a regulation in place which states that in sudden death contests like quarter finals onwards , no one official should be allowed to issue a red card without a 3 out of 4 match officials being in agreement. All other decisions should remain the same as they exist now. When one official has a greater impact on a World tourament than the teams involved, the balance has moved too far. You cannot trash the aspirations of a nation and the efforts of the other 14 players who have done no wrong. This decision is Health and safety gone mad. They'll be banning scrums next. The application of the rules has be tempered with common sense. I think Francois Pienaar had it right.
