Watch: Robert Baloucoune Very Lucky To Escape Red In Opening Minute Of Munster Clash
By Eoin Lyons Updated

Robert Baloucoune can consider himself a very lucky man after escaping a red card in the opening minute of his side's Pro14 clash with Munster.

With Ulster kicking off, the winger charged forward and completely took out Darren Sweetnam in the air as the Munster man claimed the ball.

On co-comms former Ireland coach Eddie O'Sullivan stated that Baloucoune should have seen his marching orders for the foul:

It's a red card lads, I'm afraid. There was no pull out. He went in and made a tackle in the air, by the letter of the law that's a red card.

Baloucoune only received a yellow for the incident, but many online were annoyed that the academy winger was not punished further for the dangerous play:
