A week on from ripping off the post protectors in the Mitre 10 Cup, Counties Manakau scrumhalf Augustine Pulu has seen red again.
But this time it was a crimson hue of a red card which was duly brandished by referee Glen Jackson after an awful cover tackle from the number 9.
The incident occurred in the 76th minute of Counties’ match with Manawatu, and immediately after Manawatu centre Lewis Marshall delivered an absolutely stunning out the back door pass after stepping inside his defender.
The player to receive the ball was also on the receiving end of Pulu’s dangerous tackle. Pulu had no arguments and made a point of apologizing before leaving the field.
