Fabien Pelous sinbinned for silly kick on Alan Quinlan

Fabien Pelous sending off after that silly kick

With Munster sealing the victory over Toulouse in Cardiff on Saturday, there was a key moment that possibly changed the course of the game when the French giants endured 10 minutes without their captain, Fabien Pelous, after he was sent off following a foolish incident.

Pelous and Munster's Alan Quinlan squared up innocuously in the 50th minute of the game, which resulted in the Frenchman giving his opponent a kick up the backside as he turned to walk away.

Quinlan appealed to touch judge Nigel Whitehouse who duly recommended a yellow card after summoning referee Nigel Owens.

"I did lose my head a little bit, it is a shame I reacted like that," said the 34-year-old.

"The player [Quinlan] stamped on my foot and I reacted but the referee saw only the second kick.

"But at my age it's a silly to act like that."

Munster went on to win 16-13 and lift the Heineken Cup trophy.
