Barrett’s red card goes to judiciary




All Black Jordie Barrett face a disciplinary tribunal Tuesday, charged with reckless play after being sent off during New Zealand’s Bledisloe Cup win over Australia, governing body SANZAAR said.

Barrett was red-carded during the first half of the All Blacks’ 38-21 victory in Perth on Sunday after his boot came into contact with Wallaby Marika Koroibete’s face while leaping for the ball. SANZAAR said its foul play committee had reviewed the incident and referred it for a judicial hearing, which will take place by video conference at 0900 GMT Tuesday.

It said Barrett allegedly broke a law that states “players must not do anything that is reckless or dangerous to others”.

New Zealand were allowed to replace the fullback after 20 minutes under a new rule introduced to this year’s tournament.—APP
