A Geraldine under 14 and half player was sent off against Timaru Boys' High School at Morrison Park on Saturday morning for punching.
The incident was, however, somewhat bizarre as the recipent of the punch on two separate occasions was a team-mate.
Apparently the lock took exception when given instructions by a front rower on where he should place his head and how he should push in the scrum. The player faces an automatic two week stand-down.
