Wales fans are upset by a decision in Saturday’s Autumn Nations Cup game against England when Dan Biggar was deemed to have been tackled in the air.
The incident occurred in the 14th minute of the game when the Welsh fly half clearly had both feet off the ground as he was tackled by flanker Sam Underhill.

The incident went unpunished by French referee Romain Poite and England went on to score through Henry Slade, helping the visitors to a 13-24 win at Parc y Scarlets.

Some harsh decisions from the officials today. Biggar tackled in the air plus Daly lucky to escape without being punished for the tackle on Adams #WALvENG #AutumnNationsCup

The ref said Biggar was on the ground at this moment.

That missed tackle in the air on Biggar is so poor from Poite and MacNiece. #WALvENG
