David Flatman and Matt Giteau clash over high Wallabies tackle

Former England prop David Flatman has clashed with Wallabies legend Matt Giteau over a high tackle in Australia’s World Cup opener against Fiji.

“Shoulder to the head. No arms. Fiji’s best player concussed and sidelined,” tweeted Flatman, alongside a video of the incident.

But the Wallabies legend responded: “Come on Flats.. he clearly didn’t go with that intention

“Let’s just talk about how great this contest is… too early in the comp for this type of chat.

“However, I agree that he is a big out for the Fijians for 60 minutes of the game.”

Another angle of the incident.

Here’s how other people responded to the incident.
