Red card for DeAllende

Damian de Allende given the softest red card in the history of red cards

South Africa and New Zealand played out one of the best Test matches of the year today, but one decision in the 76th minute sticks in the craw.

Damian de Allende follows through on an attempted charge down and clatters into Lima Sopoaga. Somehow, even after having viewed the TMO footage, Garces adjudges that he punched Sopoaga in the face.

A genuinely head-scratching decision from Garces.
