Kearney escapes red card for reckless challenge on Stuart Hogg

Kearney escapes red card for reckless challenge on Stuart Hogg

Ireland and Leinster full back Rob Kearney received a yellow card for a challenge in the the air on Glasgow’s Stuart Hogg during Saturday’s Pro 14 final.

The Scotland international’s head made contact with the ground as he landed but referee Nigel Owens said Hogg’s shoulder and neck made first contact with the turf, meaning a yellow card was sanctioned rather than a red.

The incident came in the 66th minute of the match and therefore a red card would have only kept Kearney off the pitch a further four minutes, but some Glasgow fans may have felt a sense of injustice at Celtic Park.

The game finished 15-18 to Leinster, meaning the Irish province defended their title to lift the Pro 14 trophy for the sixth time.

Here is some of the best reaction to the incident:
