Wycliff Palu scores then gets yellowcard

Wycliff Palu scores then gets yellowcard

Big Waratahs number eight Wycliff Palu finished off this nice try from a Highlanders turnover, then got yellow carded for overreacting to a swinging arm by Jimmy Cowan.

Cowan , New Zealand's player of the tournament last year, has always been incredibly competitive and at times, cocky. For a scrum half, he's not the smallest guy, and punches well above his weight.

Here he dives in on the Waratahs tryscorer Palu, I can only think to try dislodge the ball, but Palu takes exception to it, getting up and basically flat hand smacking Cowan in the face.

Palu got his marching orders, and the game actually restarted with a penalty on the halfway line for the Highlanders.

Palu went from hero to zero in a matter of seconds.

NOTE: We're aware of this video being down, and will try get it back up asap.
