Ireland legend Brian O’Driscoll expressed his disbelief over a forearm challenge made by All Blacks prop Tyrel Lomax during Saturday’s Tri Nations game against Argentina.
The replacement front rower used his forearm to clear out a Los Pumas player from a breakdown as he lay on the floor, making clear contact with his head.
O’Driscoll furiously Tweeted about the incident as Lomax was only shown yellow by referee Nic Berry at the Bankwest Stadium in Sydney.
Just catching up on the match from this morning & wondering how I’m meant to explain to my boy watching beside me that this only deserves 10 mins? Forearms to the head are not so bad??? FFS pic.twitter.com/iGpviifnDA

However despite the unjust nature of the challenge, it would have bared no influence on the result if Lomax was further punished as it occurred in virtually the last play of the match. New Zealand won the game 38-0 and full Match highlights are available below:
