first_imgMonday Sep 17, 2018 Geordan Murphy claims rugby has ‘gone too PC’ after Will Spencer’s straight red card Leicester Tigers coach Geordan Murphy has said that rugby has “gone too PC” after second rower Will Spencer was sent off for his challenge on Wasps hooker Tommy Taylor. A man up, Wasps won the match 41-35. Spencer will face a disciplinary hearing this week.ADVERTISEMENTSpencer made the high tackle shortly before half time in the eight-try contest, incensing new coach Murphy as well as captain Tom Youngs, who could be heard saying “Rugby’s changed” just after the red card was shown by referee Ian Tempest.Despite having some time to cool down, Murphy then followed up with a post match interview on BT Sport where he said “I think the games gone a little bit too PC” [politically correct] and touched on the fact that Spencer is extremely tall and struggled to get down that low to make a legal tackle.He said that his ‘solution’ will be to pick players under five foot, which will make it very difficult to referee.“I think the game’s gone a little bit too PC.”“That for me is crazy, it’s rugby!”Geordan Murphy is not having the Will Spencer red card… 👀#GallagherPrem pic.twitter.com/9SaVLa4UTT— Rugby on BT Sport (@btsportrugby) September 16, 2018According to the laws right now, the decision appeared to be correct, as Spencer’s shoulder did hit Taylor’s face. Intent does not come into the equation.ADVERTISEMENTThe Tigers lock will have to face a disciplinary hearing in Bristol on Tuesday evening.In the UK, you can see the full incident here. Non-UK viewers can see it in the highlights wrap below🗣 “We have a responsibility to tackle low.”“He’s 6 foot 7!”🗣 “We have to protect the players. It’s a red card.”“Rugby’s changed! Rugby’s changed!”ADVERTISEMENTWill Spencer was shown a red card for a high tackle, but not everybody agrees…We haven’t heard the last of this one 👀 pic.twitter.com/ynedwRAflU— Rugby on BT Sport (@btsportrugby) September 16, 2018Wasps coach Dai Young had sympathy for Spencer, but felt it was the correct call.“We’ve had the directive that any tackle direct to the head is a red card. It’s harsh and I’d have been disappointed if it was on our side, but I totally understand.“I don’t think it’s something the referee should be criticised for. If it was a yellow card I wouldn’t have complained about it. I hope the player doesn’t get banned for it. It’s difficult to get that 100 per cent right every time.“We have to protect the players. The guys who are saying the game’s gone soft are guys who are not out there,” he said.Below are the full match highlights, including the incident (at 1:07)<span style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” data-mce-type=”bookmark” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>credit: btsport/premiershiprugby Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
