RUGBY MOMENTS: When Lewis Moody got sent off against Samoa at Twickenham

Lewis Moody was sent off for fighting during England’s easy 40-3 win over Samoa at Twickenham in 2005 after engaging in a scrap with Leicester team-mate Alesana Tuilagi after the Samoan felled Mark Cueto with a horrible high tackle.

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

“Unfortunately, Lewis’ enthusiasm got him a red card and he will have to deal with that,” shrugged England captain Martin Corry.
