Should This Dangerous All Blacks Hit Have Been A Red Card?

Should This Dangerous All Blacks Hit Have Been A Red Card?

Cane caught the wing with a swinging arm and Tu'ungafasi appeared to clash heads with Grosso, before the Frenchman had to subsequently be taken from the field and to hospital.

The high shot resulted in a penalty from fresh-faced referee Luke Pearce - no yellow card.

Cane was penalised for a high tackle but Tu'ungafasi escaped punishment, leaving furious French coach Jacques Brunel calling for the incident to be reviewed by officials immediately after the game.

'The injury of Remy Grosso is quite serious, ' he said.

The All Blacks had earlier dismissed Brunel's accusations of illegal tactics, describing Grosso's double fracture as "one of those things".

Grosso Hospitalised

With France's Paul Gabrillagues in the sin-bin after his 50th-minute yellow card, Codie Taylor and Ben Smith ran in quickfire tries as the floodgates opened, with Beauden Barrett adding the extras. Television replays showed he had not made any contact with the inside centre's head or neck. "I don't think their guy should have been yellow carded, nor do I think Ofa should have been yellow carded", Hansen said Sunday after twice reviewing video of the hard-hitting Test.

"Yellow card or not yellow card, we had to deal with it". It was very hard to fight with the All Blacks after that'.

France had led 11-8 at halftime and were holding on in the second half as the All Blacks developed momentum before Gabrillague was sinbinned and the world champions quickly hammered home their numerical advantage. This is just the beginning and we can't improve everything in just a week.

"I've asked my team mates to improve and I've said to them that's it's a privilege to play here. Our game is really fluid, there's movement in it and when you get two guys coming at you to make a tackle on one things can change late and I think that's what happened".
