The incident occurred in the 74th minute of play off of a collapsed scrum. We then see as Genge charges towards a Wales prop who is on his knees – he appears to be leading in with the head.

Genge’s head then appears to connect with the face of his opponent before the pair both go to ground sparking off a mass brawl around them.

Watch the incident that everyone seemed to miss below.

From this video you can see the collision that has dropped Ellis Genge into hot water.

Another video that is in lower resolution but zoomed in shows the alleged head-butt and it doesn’t make for easy viewing.

Fans on social media picked up on the head to head contact from the England prop with some calling for him to be cited ahead of the Autumn Nationa Cup final next week.

Some fans felt that Genge was pushed from behind which led him to fall into the Welsh player – others felt it was a clear head-butt. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
