Melbourne Rebels number eight Isi Naisarani was shown a straight red card against the Waratahs on Saturday for a nasty high shot followed by a naughty punch.
The 26-year-old connected too high on Max Douglas before throwing a few cheeky swings at Lachlan Swinton, leaving the referee with no option but to send off the influential ball-carrier in the first half.
