Andrew Hore only gave a cheating Welshman a tap on the side of the face, says Alan Murray

OPINION: I must take issue with your unreasonable columnist Mark Reason's attack on Andrew Hore and our union (ABs Must Say Sorry For Once, TDN Nov 28).

The game is rugby, not tiddlywinks. The Welshman was cheating, and while Hore may have given him a tap on the side of the face for his trouble, it was his hip and knee hitting Davies as Hore flew past him into the ruck that actually knocked him out. This could happen any time.

Maybe Reason should ponce on back to the United Kingdom where his tripe may be more acceptable reading.
