Home Rugby Watch: Sonny Bill Williams Sees Red For Sickening Hit On Anthony Watson

Watch: Sonny Bill Williams Sees Red For Sickening Hit On Anthony Watson

In torrential conditions in Wellington, an incredible game of rugby is taking place between the All Blacks and the British and Irish Lions. 

After 23 minutes of the game, the sides could not be separated with penalties apiece from Beauden Barrett and Owen Farrell.

However, the match took a huge twist on the quarter of the hour mark when Sonny Bill Williams saw a red card for a shoulder challenge on Anthony Watson. Watson was taking the ball into contact and Williams led with the shoulder directly into the face of Watson.

It was incredibly dangerous and referee, Jerome Garces, had no choice but to send Williams for an early bath.
