Rene Ranger gets yellow for HUGE illegal hit on Morgan Parra... then laughs

Rene Ranger gets yellow for HUGE illegal hit on Morgan Parra... then laughs

Back in 2014 former All Blacks winger Rene Ranger was involved in a scuffle with French international Morgan Parra during a Top 14 clash between Clermont and Montpellier.

Parra took a quick penalty to try and catch out the Montpellier defence, only to be met by a brutal dump tackle from Ranger which sent both sides into a frenzy in front of a raucous Clermont crowd.

Parra took exception to Ranger’s hit because he wasn’t 10 metres back from the penalty mark, but the scrum half reacted by throwing a head butt at the former All Black.

Referee Sébastien Minery sent Ranger to the sin bin but showed a red card to Parra, which had the Montpellier winger smiling in the dugout.

Parra was later banned for two weeks which meant he missed a Six Nations game against Scotland and despite playing three quarters of the match with 14 men, Clermont went on to win the game 42-16.
