Was Ben Thatcher’s ‘tackle’ the worst in football history?

For those of you who missed last night’s games, you’ll no doubt be wondering about Ben Thatcher’s vicious forearm, stuck on Pedro Mendes. In all honesty, it looked like the referee, Dermot Gallagher, had a shocker. Not only did he miss one of the worst assaults I’ve seen on a player (it’s up there with Schumacher on Battiston) but a blatant handball too.

Here are the highlights from the game: Thatcher’s assault is about four minutes in (you can see slow-mo highlights of the tackle – which show it more clearly – on about 6min 38sec).
