What a win that was last night for England in Marseille in the south of France, a lot of the English supporters and rugby people in general aren’t happy at the red card that England flanker Tom Curry received and rightly so.
I know we’re trying to make the game safer, but that is simply a rugby collision/accident, not a whole pile more Tom Curry would do in this incident.
This red card for Tom curry is worth looking at, an accidental clash of heads has resulted in the most ridiculous red card possibly ever seen. Player safety is paramount but in a contact sport like rugby, common sense has to prevail. https://t.co/bMqSUVn4TZ

Utter, utter bollocks that decision. Never a fucking red. What is the point? We are not talking a deliberate act to hurt someone, this was an unavoidable clash of heads. If you say he could have got lower then you have never played the game #ENGvARG

Curry red card is a joke! Nothing more than a rugby collision, now turned into a game changing decision!🙈🙈🙈

There won’t be any suspension for Tom Curry after that incident, the England flanker is not a dirty player and doesn’t have a history of anything. World Rugby need to get this right, accidents do happen, it’s a contact sport.
Could this result drive England on and could they be contenders for the tournament?
