Seremaia Bai will think twice before using headbutts to clear out a ruck again
The Leicester centre was red-carded today against Wasps.

LEICESTER TIGERS KEPT their Aviva Premiership play-off hopes on track today with a 21-26 win over Wasps in front of a crowd of 32,019 at the Ricoh Arena.

But they did so despite playing the majority of the game with 14 men, after Fijian centre Seremaia Bai was sent off late in the first-half.

Bai hurled himself into a ruck and collided with Wasps’ Nathan Hughes, who’ll need a good supply of paracetamol to deal with the headaches that are likely to follow.

Referee Wayne Barnes initially produced a yellow card for Bai, before changing it to a red after viewing a replay of the incident on the big screen.

Former Leinster back Niall Morris scored one of Leicester’s three tries during an encounter which set an attendance record for a Premiership game outside of Twickenham and Wembley.
