Watch: Tolu Latu sent off for swearing at referee Wayne Barnes

Wallabies and Stade Francais hooker Tolu Latu was shown a second yellow card in the Stade Francais match against Connacht on Sunday for swearing towards referee Wayne Barnes.

His first yellow was for a no-arms clearout, but his second was more contentious. 


Barnes could be heard over the referee's mic stating that Latu had looked up from the penalty, "looked straight at me and shouted, 'f**king hell!'

"He then looked at me and said, "I got the f***ing ball!''" Barnes told Stade captain Tala Gray on the pitch.


The commentators on BT Sport said: "Latu is in all sorts of trouble, all sorts of trouble. Good night, good luck and goodbye.

"Whatever he said to Wayne Barnes, it was enough to warrant a yellow card. It's his second one having gone for foul play, and that is the end of that. "


Luckily for Stade Francais, they were able to hold out for the win beating Connacht 37-31.
