Horrific tackle by two U-20 French players against English opponent results in double red card

It was like something straight out of a wrestling arena.

Friday saw the French U-20 team suffer their first defeat at the Six Nations, losing 22-6 to England, but during a particularly trying scrum, things ended with a shocking tackle by the French side.

Two of the French players, Hassane Kolingar and Pierre-Henry Azagoh, effectively picked up English player Fraser Dingwall, and pile-driver'd him out of the scrum and into the pitch.

The tackle resulted in both the players instantly receiving a red card from the referee, and some viewers are expecting further repercussions to their actions.
