Wasps full back Jacob Umaga looked shocked after being shown a red card against Toulouse on Saturday in the Heineken Champions Cup.
The 23-year-old made a challenge on scrum half Martin Page-Relo and after a lengthly TMO review, the referee showed Umaga red for making contact with the head.
The Wasps full back was left baffled by the decision along with several pundits and fans.

Just seen the Jacob Umaga sending off. Isn’t there such a thing as an accident anymore. Looked like a clash of heads nothing more. Hopefully common sense prevails.

I feel for Umaga with that red but intent has always been irrelevant and tackling with his other shoulder would have almost certainly avoided that #WASvTOU

Correct call there for a yellow which should have been the same for Umaga

Umaga red: Farcical. Unnecessarily ruined game. Ridiculous. #WASvTOU
