Should Keith Earls Have Seen Yellow For His Tackle On Liam Williams

Ireland v Wales - RBS Six Nations

Keith Earls took Liam Williams over the horizontal.

In what has been a fantastic first half, both Ireland and Wales have played with the tempo and precision that was missing in both of yesterday’s matches.

Although Ireland have carried well and CJ Stander made a massive impression on his debut, Wales have competed well at the breakdown, with both Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric beginning to make an impact.

Nevertheless, the one massive talking point from the first half, was Keith Earls’ tackle on Liam Williams. Indeed in each of the replays it appeared that the Irish winger took Williams over the horizontal and released him before the Welsh full back hit the ground.

After viewing replays of the incident, Jerome Garces decided to only give a penalty against Earls, to the dismay of many Welsh fans.
