Flying Fijians back-rower, Albert Tuisue

Flying Fijians back-rower, Albert Tuisue has paid a heavy price for the tackle he gave Joe Carbery against Ireland last weekend.

The Gloucester forward was red-carded by French referee Mathieu Raynal following his second-half collision and will now miss four matches.

A statement, Tuisue appeared before an independent judicial committee chaired by Philippe Cavalieros (France) and joined by former internationals Stefan Terblanche (South Africa) and Leon Lloyd (England).

He denied that he had committed an act of foul play worthy of a red card, but admitted that the act was worthy of at most a yellow card. Having reviewed all the evidence, the committee noted that the player had under the applicable regulation the burden of proving that a red card was not warranted.

Meanwhle, Head Coach, Vern Cotter is expected to name his side today.

The Flying Fijians will face the French Barbarians at 2am Sunday.
