They were humbled 35-18 by the Crusaders on Friday evening in Nelson but one incident that may have been overshadowed by the win (or the Hurricanes loss for that matter) was a yellow card issued to Crusaders centre Robbie Fruean.
His hit on Hurricanes wing Nehe Milner-Skudder was deemed to be an act of foul play.
Um...what else can I say, this used to be a great tackle.
Now it seems even a decent hit is dangerous.
So was Fruean's hit on Milner-Skudder really worth a yellow?
You tell me.
