Rugby-Ireland's Aki given red card in 29th minute against Samoa

FUKUOKA, Japan, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Ireland were reduced to 14 men in the 29th minute of their crunch World Cup Pool A clash against Samoa in Fukuoka on Saturday after inside centre Bundee Aki was given a red card for a high tackle on flyhalf Ulupano Seuteni.

Ireland, who need a bonus point win to guarantee a spot in the quarter-finals, were leading 21-5 when referee Nic Berry sent Aki off after a TMO review of the clash.
