What NRL star Adam Doueihi said to referee to pick up red card and suspension in Rugby League World Cup

Earlier today, Adam Doueihi picked up a one-match ban which leaves the Lebanon star out of their massive match against Ireland next week.

The stand-off is one of the star players for Lebanon and partners NRL Grand Finalist Mitchell Moses in an impressive halfback combination.

The pair caused world number one ranked side New Zealand plenty of problems and helped engineer a second try at the start of the second half against the Kiwis which left just six points in it after Doueihi had caused problems with short kick-offs since the first one of the game which led to a try for Josh Mansour.

However, as Joey Manu produced the tricks and flicks to take the game away from the Cedars, tempers boiled leading to a red card for Doueihi.

There was initial confusion over what had happened but it was later confirmed that the red was for “foul and abusive language” towards the match official.

It has now been revealed what exactly he said to receive a red card, after all decent is usually only a penalty and at most a yellow card, and a subsequent ban which leaves him out of the clash against Ireland which will likely determine who will make the quarter-finals where World Cup holders Australia await.

According to the NRL website, the frustrated number six said to the referee “Give us some f—ing calls” as he felt everything went against his side.

However, once he had cooled down, he vowed to make amends according to Mansour speaking to the NRL website: “To be totally honest, I didn’t really see what happened or hear what happened because I was on the opposite side but he was kind of shocked when it happened and the call was made,”

It’s dissent. Not decent.
