15 years ago today: Alesana Tuilagi v Lewis Moody fight

15 years ago today, England flanker Lewis Moody was sent off for fighting during England's 40-3 win over Samoa at Twickenham.

Moody engaged in a scrap with Leicester team-mate Alesana Tuilagi after the Samoan felled Mark Cueto with a horrible high tackle in the air.


Moody was banned for nine weeks and Tuilagi for two with the England flanker's punishment more severe as he had already served a six-week ban earlier in the season for punching in a second-team match.
