Being a player in international rugby is far from easy and this weekend these five players were far below their usually high standards.

Was poor before he got sent off for a brainless tackle. Debatable if it was a red card, but still – in the modern era – you are asking for trouble.
Jérôme Garcès sent off Sonny Bill Williams (correctly) against the Lions. He has just sent off Scott Barrett (correctly) against the Wallabies.— Paul Eddison (@pauleddison) August 10, 2019
