Kings flanker shown an extremely soft yellow card against Munster

Southern Kings flanker Lusanda Badiyana sent to the sin bin for an incredibly harsh yellow card against Munster in the Pro 14 on Friday.

Badiyana retaliated to Chris Cloete who grabbed the back of his shirt during a small scrap late.


 While turning around to face Cloete, he raised his elbow to free up some space brushing Cloete's face as he did so.

Munster went on to record a 68-3 victory, their biggest win the PRO14.


The decision was widely criticised on twitter:
