George Ford traded England duties for the green and red of Leicester Tigers this weekend – but it didn’t all end well for the 28-year-old.
In his side’s clash against Saracens, Ford was involved in a serious incident that outraged some fans on social media.
Earlier in the game – Aled Davies had been shown a yellow for an offence that was widely deemed as less serious than this collision with the Leicester 10.
Some viewers were incensed that George Ford was not even taken for a HIA following this Gallagher Premiership moment.
Here was the incident below that got fans so worked up during yesterday’s game.

This was the try that sealed the victory for them yesterday.
