United Future leader Peter Dunne has come out in support of Samoan rugby star Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu.

He's been making headlines for Twitter attacks he's made against the board of the IRB and a referee, claiming racism is in play at Rugby World Cup 2011.

Mr Dunne agrees, and questions whether the IRB would be reacting the same way to Mike Tindall's behaviour, if he wasn't the English captain.
