Twitter Reacts To Mike Brown’s Stamp On Conor Murray

Irish fans were incensed at Mike Brown’s stamp on Conor Murray.

Just as it seemed as if Ireland were about to cross the line to secure a try that would set up a grand stand finish in Twickenham, Ultan Dillane was stopped under the posts.

The young lock impressed with a barnstorming charge into the 22, and but thwarted by an impressive try saving tackle.

However it is what happened next that has caused a storm of controversy. Although Danny Care was rightfully binned for slowing down the ball, Mike Brown could have also seen yellow for stamping on Conor Murray’s head.

While his first action can be excused, his two subsequent stamps cannot. It was therefore strange that the match officials deemed the incident an accident.

Consequently, not only were Irish fans enraged but rugby fans around the globe.
