When Jonathan Sexton was charged down on Friday eve in Cardiff and Jamie Roberts dived across the line to score a try, it sealed Ireland's fate against Wales in the sides' Six Nations clash. Particularly pleased about this occurrence was Welsh defence coach Shaun Edwards, whose celebration divided opinion on social media.
It's much ado about nothing, however - at least, according to the man himself. Edwards was asked about the incident at a press conference and he told reporters that he "couldn't believe why so many people looked at" his celebration:
It was just a harmless hand gesture...I was throwing a punch in the air and people are talking about that rather than an incredible defensive performance where Ireland were kept try-less for the first time for four years.
I’m a child of the 1990s and if you are going to say something rude you stick two fingers up and not one. It’s true though, Agincourt, two fingers isn’t it?
There you have it. Nothing to see here. Let this be a lesson to anyone daring to punch the air in delight: control your middle finger - people might get the wrong impression otherwise.
