Melani Nanai escapes sanction for foul play

Melani Nanai escapes sanction for foul play

Blues outside back Melani Nanai can count himself lucky that he escaped sanction for a piece of off the ball foul play against the Stormers.

Twitter user Lee Davids, presumably a Stormers supporter, spotted the foul play with Nanai appearing to have elbowed Stormers' outside back Dillyn Leyds in the face with the Stormers man attempting to get the ball from the fullback for a lineout.

Another Twitter user, Sibusiso Mjikeliso also spotted the incident and criticised the host broadcast who showed no replays of the incident while New Zealand referee Nick Briant was also in close proximity.  

However, Blues winger Tanielu Tele'a did get cop a 4-week suspension after he was red carded for taking Leyds out in the air.
