Fijian- born Samu Kerevi has revealed the sledge which triggered the ugly altercation between Lukhan Tui and an irate fan after the Wallabies’ loss to Argentina.
Tui was involved in an scuffle with an irate Australian fan after the 23-19 loss to Argentina but more detail regarding the incident came to light post-match.
According to rugby.com.au, Kerevi was in the crowd watching the angry fan hurl abuse and was part of the group of people who pulled his Reds teammate and the man apart.
The injured Wallabies star took to Instagram on Sunday to share his side of the story.
Kerevi’s defence comes as Wallabies coach Michael Cheika revealed on Sunday Tui is “unlikely” to be on Australia’s flight to South Africa.
The 21-year-old’s stepfather passed away on Wednesday and the Wallabies wore black armbands in remembrance.
