WATCH | Worcester Warriors forward sent off for ‘punch in the face’

Worcester Warriors forward Andrew Kitchener was sent off and Siale Piutau received a yellow card when the two collided late on at Sixways.

Watching the incident from the 78th minute back, it’s clear that the Bears centre, who was ordered to the sin-bin for his part in the incident, throws the first punch,

However, the game was long over with Bristol Bears continuing their bid for a home play-off semi-final with a 36-13 win against Worcester.
