Have your say

It took an age to send England’s Owen Farrell to the sin bin against Australia after a particularly obvious dangerous play.

Yet Aussie player Michael Hooper did the same in the first-half (at a time when England were still in touch), and was punished by just a penalty, until after the game when he was cited for his nasty tackle. A bit too late to be of any use to be honest.

Rugby union is a dangerous game now that everyone (including some wingers) is bulked up. The World Cup Final could be a farce if the current rate of players departing with injuries continues.
