Fans fume after dangerous hit on Bulls player goes unpunished
VIDEO: Bulls fans believe the Hurricanes should have been reduced to 14 men during their Super Rugby quarterfinal against the Bulls in Wellington on Saturday.
The Hurricanes went unpunished for what looked like a dangerous shoulder charge from Asafo Aumua on Bulls replacement prop Simphiwe Matanzima.
All the officials missed the hit.
The Bulls went on to lose the match 28-35 with the Hurricanes moving on to face the Crusaders in next weekend’s semifinals.
