WATCH: Fans outraged over ‘soft’ and ‘shocking’ red card

Fans outraged with a red card shown to a Connacht player in a clash with Scarlets in the URC.

Connacht beat the Scarlets in a crucial win 29-23 in Parc y Scarlets last Saturday. This was Connacht’s first away win against the Scarlets in 17 years.

Tonga international Leva Fifita was shown a second yellow card which ended in a red when trying to block a kick. Fifita jumped into the air as the ball was kicked and accidentally fell into the kicker with his hands in the air. The red card came at a crucial point in the game with 5 minutes left to play. The game at this stage was still in the balance as Connacht led 29-20.

The red card gave a much needed lift to the Scarlets as they launched their attack once again. Substitute Rhys Patchell knocked over the penalty that followed to decrease Connacht’s margin to 6. Scarlets kept themselves in possession for the majority of the final moments as they looked to snatch a victory at the death. However, it wasn’t to be as Connacht held on to claim an important victory in the context of the league table and their season.

Many Connacht fans expressed their disappointment in the decision arrived at by the officials concerning Fifita’s second yellow card which resulted in a red card. Viewers were outraged in the moment when the red card was awarded and after the final whistle.
