England managed to get the win in the end yesterday against the determined Welsh side. But some of the Welsh fans feel that they should have got a penalty right at the death when George Ford took out one of the Welsh players in the air ..
See the incident and the comments below ..

Like, this isn't even a 50/50 call, and the ref just went, "nah, it's alright" https://t.co/lvkphiATl5

Plain as day this was cynical and deliberate #foulplay. You can clearly see the moment Ford decided to stop going for the ball and to illegally take the player out in the air instead #ENGvWAL #SixNationsRugby pic.twitter.com/F6VRqOzrL7

As a Welshman, agree it’s a clear pen. Would it have made a difference? We’ll never know. But one of several questionable decisions which we as arm chair pundits always focus on. No doubt some went our way too. Part of any game and ref was good overall I thought.
This was very frustrating at the time – I am sure it would have come to nothing but having checked it I don’t really get why the ref doesn’t give a penalty to Wales. Makes no sense. Clear foul
Well after the soft peno try, 2 yellow cards that weren’t yellow cards and the ref giving you everything at the breakdown, I’m sure you’ll get over this one thing occurring deep in your own half not going your way
