In yesterdays Six Nations clash between Wales & Scotland at the ever impressive Millennium Stadium, big second rower Nathan Hines got himself into a little bit of trouble with referee Bryce Lawrence.
Hines, Australian born and now playing for Perpignon in France, took a disliking to Welsh fullback Lee Byrne holding him back slightly and lashed out with a swinging arm that would have knocked most players into next week.
Hines duly got his marching orders and isn't the first playing we've seen throwing a wild swinging arm in recent times, even if the 'holding back' was questionable.
