Nigel Owens calls for ‘lengthy ban’ after brutal tackle

 Nigel Owens gave his take on the Ryno Pieterse tackle, saying, “I never get involved in citing’s or length of ban conversations.”

“But this was as obvious a red card you will see and well done Romain, no TMO lengthy conversations. But it has to now be followed by a very very lengthy ban.”

There was little sympathy, in fact a lot of anger shown to South African lock after his disgraceful tackle on Maxime Lucu.

Pieterse was immediately shown a red card by referee Romain Poite, and the South African was sent to the stands with little to argue about.
