Give dangerous tackles red card

I FULLY support the move by the International Rugby Board to disallow dangerous tackles.

To lift a man up and then drop him from one metre or more onto his shoulders, neck or head is extremely dangerous.

I am appalled that much comment in the papers and on TV has claimed the red card in last Saturday's World Cup semi-final in some way spoiled the game.

Would commentators have preferred to see Clerc paralysed from the neck down and Wales the victors?
