Malakai Fekitoa spent 10 minutes on the bench in the second half for a wild challenge on Simon Zebo but should it have been a red card?

While Ireland were in the ascendancy and on the attack in the 49th minute, the ball was fired out to the Munster winger but his progress was halted by a tackle which was extremely dangerous.

Referee Jaco Peyper was satisfied with giving the Kiwi a yellow with the Aviva Stadium baying for a red.

Should he have been dismissed?
