Highlanders midfielder Jason Emery was last night shown a red card in the 12th minute of his team's Super Rugby clash with the Sharks.

Emery was sent off for this dangerous play on Sharks fullback Willie le Roux in the air.



Chasing a bomb Emery leapt for the ball, only to send Sharks fullback le Roux into an awful somersault.

Le Roux landed on his head, Emery went down as well. When he recovered, he was sent off.

The Highlanders were then forced to play with 14 men for 68 minutes, and were narrowly beaten 15-14.
