Olly Barkley stood out for England in what was an otherwise dismal performance. The United States are hardly a rugby super-power but managed to at least look competitive against the World Champions, England.
Here, in the final seconds of match, we see an unfortunate incident. Olly Barkley is upended by American centre Paul Emerick. Surely there was little malice, but it was still very dangerous. Luckily Barkley got up and seemed fine afterwards.
Update: Emerick received a 5 match suspension for this tackle, therefore ending his World Cup.
