A quick look at an awful tackle from the Australian Schools flyhalf Jordan Jackson-Hope against the New Zealand Barbarians two weeks ago. Jackson-Hope was shown a straight red card after he left the referee little choice but to send him from the field for this spear or tip-tackle.

The Australian side were made to pay for their one-man disadvantage, going down 39-21.

“Losing our flyhalf so early in the match was not ideal for our game plan, so we had to adjust to that,” said coach Steve Philpotts. “We were a bit shell-shocked in those first 10 minutes but we remained patient and put ourselves in good positions to capitalise on the Barbarians’ errors.

“I am very proud of the way we tried to play for the full 70 minutes, considering we were a man down for most of the match,” he added when reflecting on the match.

    I can only echo what those above have already said... what else could he have honestly expected? You've got to be pretty damn stupid to pull something like this off and NOT expect a red...

    What I love about this is the look of incredulity on the Aussie player's face, when he gets red carded for pulling off a textbook red card offence. Priceless.
