“100% red” – Tadhg Furlong could be in hot water for ‘clothesline’ on England’s Henry Slade

Ireland kept their hopes of a Six Nations title alive as they finally saw off a valiant, spirited England who played 78 minutes with 14 men after Charlie Ewels’ red card.

Ewels was dismissed with just 82 seconds on the clock after clashing heads with James Ryan in an attempted tackle.

However, an incident has appeared on social media of Tadhg Furlong accidently clotheslining England centre Henry Slade.

You can watch the incident below.


The four changes Eddie Jones should make to his XV for France

We pick four players we think deserve a chance in the England XV following the spirited defeat against Ireland in the Six Nations.

#1. Charlie Ewels

Telegraph: “Regardless of public opinion and how his sending off affected the spectacle, modern players know that they must tackle lower. Unforgivably clumsy.”

Rugby Pass: “Received the earliest red card in international rugby history after only 82 seconds for his dangerous tackle on James Ryan who was left concussed. Ewels failed to bend into the tackle and as a result made forceful and direct contact with his opposite number’s head.”

Replacement: Joe Launchbury
