[tps_header]In honour of the upcoming Lions warm-up test against the Waratahs and remembering this infamous bit of madness from ‘Tahs outhalf Duncan McRae, we’re taking a look at some of the best (or worst) “Red Mist” moments in Rugby over the last five years.[/tps_header]

1. Joe Marler VS. Marcos Ayerza: Red Hair, Red Cap, Red Card

Joe Marler and Marcus Ayzera go toe to toe after a little rucking goes awry. A valuable lesson to be learnt from Marler here- If you’re going to be throwing punches, choose a more subtle hairstyle.

2. Nemia Soqeta VS. Chris Masoe: Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

Nemia Soqeta wearing the aptly coloured Black and Yellow of Taranaki lands two shots on Chris Masoe and gets away with it. Listen to the Ref conversing with the Linesman for added hilarity.

3.Andrew Trimble VS. Liam Williams: Right hooks at Ravenhill

This one is a bit more one-sided, and you have to feel that Andrew Trimble was hard-done by here to see yellow as well as Williams.

4. Eddie Aholelei VS. Ray Barkwill: Aholelei Ahoy

In the recent Pacific Nations cup things got very mental very quickly, as tensions that were boiling under the collar erupted into madness. After it ended, Aholelei decked Barkwill with a pretty heavy right hook. In fairness, Barkwill shot straight back up after. Hard man.

5. Dynamo Bucuresti VS. Farul Constanta: Romanian Rumble

We’re not really sure how or why this 30 man brawl started, but its an epic. As the Narrator says only two players were sent off at the time, but sanctions for a whopping nine people involved were dealt out on review by the Romanian Rugby Board.
