Watch: All Blacks Legend Ma’a Nonu Channels His Inner Nigel Owens In Top 14 Clash

“This is not soccer.”

All Blacks legend Ma’a Nonu channeled his inner Nigel Owens this weekend during Toulon’s clash with rivals Clermont Auvergne. The bruising centre was shown a yellow card for a shoulder charge late in the first-half and Nonu was far from happy.

Nonu blasted the referee, stating ‘this is not soccer,’ and felt he was unfairly removed from the field. Toulon were leading 10-6 before Nonu went off, but Clermont quickly took advantage of the extra man, scoring a try almost immediately and eventually going on to win the game.

Have a look below. Should Nonu have been aggreeived or was it a yellow card offence?
