This is a disgraceful and ridiculously dangerous spear tackle from English flanker Ross Moriarty on Irish scrum half Luke McGrath.
Luckily, McGrath was OK and was able to continue the game.
Some of the Twitter reaction.
That was EXACTLY the same as the Umaga and Mealamu spear on BOD in 2005. Disgraceful stuff.
