Phil Clarke says red card call was wrong but says it “was maybe a yellow”

Leeds Rhinos are down to 12 men against Wigan Warriors after Zane Tetevano was sent off for a late hit on Harry Smith which was deemed as “direct contact with the head.”

However, Phil Clark believes Tetevano was unlucky to be sent off saying it was yellow card at most.

He said on Sky Sports:

“No I don’t think it was a red card. We didn’t have the best view here in the corner. At most it was maybe a yellow card.

“I don’t think there is direct contact with the head and I think he is fractionally unlucky.

“The ball player runs at him and commits him. If he passes the ball a fraction of a second of the ball beforehand it is a tackle.”

However, former Leeds Rhinos skipper Stevie Ward had no sympathies for the Leeds man:

SW: “He is putting pressure on the halfback but he has gone from out to win and leaving his teammates short there.

“You can’t do that, he has intent and bite but too much.

“You can’t do that now.”
