Warringah see red over Needs send off against Wests and will contest

By MARK CASHMAN

Warringah will contest the red card shown to their tighthead prop Sam Needs in the Rats’ 47-24 win over West Harbour at Pittwater Rugby Park on Saturday.

The Needs red card (for striking) along with the one given to Wests backrower Visi Vaohea is due to be heard on Tuesday by the SRU judiciary and the Rats are very hopeful of having having him available for their next game against Eastwood in Round Five.

This was always going to be a tough one for the home side to negotiate off the back of the draining loss to Southern Districts at Forshaw last weekend and that’s pretty much the way it all panned out.
