Divisive Red Card Shown After George North Knocked Out Cold This Evening

Divisive Red Card Shown After George North Knocked Out Cold This Evening

Not for the first time this season, George North is put in harm's way after a sickening collision. He was knocked out cold after touching down for a try in Northampton's game against Wasps.

As he touched down in the corner, Wasps back-row forward Nathan Hughes' knee collided with his face. Hughes received a red card.

The decision has proved very divisive on twitter with many expressing worry for North but arguing that it was an accidental collision and didn't call for a red card. Others have suggested that Hughes should have easily been able to stop in time.
