Maori All Blacks second row Pari Pari Parkinson was yellow carded for a huge body slam on USA scrum half Shaun Davies.

The tackle came in the 35th minute of an international friendly in Chicago and the Maori All Blacks won the game 59-22 to kick start their end of season tour with a victory.

The 22-year-old lock stands over two metres tall, weighs 119kg and made one appearance for the Highlanders in Super Rugby last season.

The touring side suffered two more yellow cards during the match, the first coming five minutes before Parkinson’s body slam when captain Ash Dixon was penalised for collapsing a maul and in the 61st minute replacement prop Robbie Abel was binned for slowing the ball down at a ruck.

The Maori All Blacks scored nine tries against the USA and will next face Brazil on 11 November and finish their tour with a match against Chile the following week, 18 November.

      Were you watching any other games on the weekend? There was English special dispensation for Farrell in what was clearly a no-arms tackle and Japanese special dispensation for the two players who speared an AB and another who dropped a shoulder into the small of the back of a player on the ground. If every team gets special dispensation, there is no special dispensation.
