WORCESTER Warriors wing Ed Fidow was sent off in Samoa’s heavy Rugby World Cup defeat to Scotland.

Fidow was brandished two yellow cards by referee Pascal Gauzere in the Pool A clash at the Misaki Stadium in Kobe City.

Both incidents resulted in penalty tries for Scotland as they ran out 34-0 winners.

The first yellow card came on the 56th minute when he was penalised for being offside and preventing Fraser Brown’s score.

After spending 10 minutes in the sin-bin, Fidow returned to the field only for his night to go from bad to worse.

This time Sean Maitland looked set to go over in the corner with six minutes left only to be stopped by Fidow who slid in with his knees into the wing’s back.

Speaking on ITV, co-commentator and ex-England player Ugo Monye said: “You can’t tackle with your knees.

“No player wants to see another player go off the pitch, but it was so clear cut.”

Fidow’s dismissal comes after he received a citing commissioner warning by World Rugby for “punching or striking” in Samoa’s win over Russia.

A citing commissioner warning equates to a retrospective yellow card.

Fidow who scored twice against Russia joined Warriors from French side Provence this summer.
