OH is in the telly room with his head in his hands.

I was banished to do the ironing, and I'm not going back in now I've finished.

Want to see that tackle in real time - I missed it.

Should have sinbinned him. Even for a half if it was allowed.

It ends the game as a contest and ruins the tournament.

It's the worst of this kind I have seen in the tournament to date. Others I have seen there were elements of unluckiness involved, this one was pure stupidity. Not only did he knowingly lift him, he also knowingly rotated him, two big no-nos

Just seen it. He dropped him. At least he didn't drive him so it was not a spear. Stupid yes.

I believe there were worse tackles in the pools that were spears.

I wanted to see a non-top 5 team in the final, and a team that had played well in the tournament...

We'll see!

The defining thing about Warburton's tackle though is that he was the only one tackling. In other examples throughout the WC there were more than one person in the tackles making it easier for the attacking player to be rotated and therefore there are more mitigating circumstances involved. Warburton's tackle was all his own doing. It's not like it was even the French player's momentum that saw him rotated, it was all Warbuton, so as much as I pain to say it, he deserved it

Just switched it on, I wouldn't have realised Wales were one short going on the flow of play.

Never thought I would go for the taffs but I am enjoying their fight.
