See the collision that got CJ Stander sent off in South Africa

CJ Stander will feel hard done by after he was red carded in Ireland's first test against South Africa.

He was sent off by Matieu Raynar for catching the jaw of Pat Lambie with his hip when he jumped in the air to try and block a kick, an incident which saw the South Africa player stretchered off.

Thankfully, Lambie is said to be back on his feet in the dressing room before being taken to hospital as a precaution.

But it meant that Joe Schmidt's men played the Springboks with 14 men.
