Tonga’s Rugby Coach Says Black Players Singled Out


Tonga’s rugby coach Mana Otai is claiming that international referees are picking on his players because they are black.

His comments came after violence riddled and red and yellow card marred Pacific Nations match between Tonga and Canada in Kingston, Ontario. Canada won 36-27.

One Tongan was red-carded in the first half and there were two yellow cards against them.

Otai told Canadian Press (CP) that he had looked at the videos of the incidents.
