Liam Williams got a lot of criticism online for his play-acting after being tackled by Iain Henderson.
Ireland got their Six Nations campaign off to an electric staring with a 34-1 win over Wales at the Principality Stadium on Saturday.
Andy Farrell’s men didn’t waste any time and were 27-3 up heading into halftime, with Caelan Doris, James Ryan and James Lowe all scoring tries.

Wales did come back into the game in the second half, Liam Williams scoring a try but it wasn’t enough.
There were a lot of comments about Williams on Twitter but they had nothing to do with his score.
The Welsh fullback went down easily after a challenge by Iain Henderson and stayed on the ground in pain.
Many supporters thought that he was trying to con the officials and took to social media to call him out.
Liam Williams rolling around faking a penalty like an italian footballer. Absolutely pathetic #WALvIRE #CYMvIWE

For a hard man ex-scaffolder – Liam Williams folded himself up like a deckchair at the slightest of touches. What a dirty diving cheat!!! #WALvIRE
