Bundee Aki has an interesting take on playing against teams reduced numerically by red cards, as has been the case in Ireland’s last couple of wins over Italy and England.
The popular perception might be that it should be a routine win for the side who holds the advantage in personnel thereafter, but the Connacht, Ireland and Lions centre disagrees.
“I think playing against 14 and 13 is a lot harder than playing against 15. That’s my own opinion. Just because you see so much space and you want to get to the space quickly.
