Pat Lam berates judicial inconsistencies
WATCH: Bristol Bears coach Pat Lam berated the sanction handed to Siale Piutau, using the pre-match interview of his side’s 47-10 victory over Northampton Saints to air his views.
Piutau was handed a three-match ban for fighting with Worcester Warriors lock Andrew Kitchener.

Lam was adamant that Piutau was simply defending himself, something that common law allows.

Pat Lam wanted the floor to address Siale Piutau’s three-match ban.
“You’ve got to have self-defense. You should be able to defend yourself if someone attacks you lie that.”
