Was a yellow card the right call for this Willie le Roux challenge?

Glen Jackson and his TMO decided not to red card the Boks fullback.

THERE WAS CONTROVERSY in the first half of Ireland’s third Test against the Springboks as referee Glen Jackson opted to yellow card Willie le Roux for a challenge in the air on Tiernan O’Halloran.

While many called for a red card, TMO Rowan Kitt advised Jackson that O’Halloran had landed on the “top of his shoulders.” Jackson yellow carded le Roux.

What did you think of the incident?
