All Black winger Leicester Fainga’anuku has seen a yellow card for a hit on Ireland’s winger Mack Hansen.
Having received the ball from a strong Irish scrum, Hansen went to kick for territory before being clattered into by two All Black defenders.
It was Fainga’anuku who was sent from the field of play for a late hit with no arms.
Referee Jaco Peyper brandished a yellow card for the incident with many feeling it could’ve been a red card.
For the love of Jesus, he got absolutely cleaned there! pic.twitter.com/9L2OcqVNfH
