The MRP reclassified Rufer’s offence on Tuesday from “violent conduct” to “serious unsporting conduct”, with Wellington accepting the resulting one-match ban that rules the midfielder out of their next match against Newcastle.

“While disappointed that the red card was issued in the first place, I think this result is the best that we could have expected,” Dome said.

Obviously really harsh for the Wellington Phoenix midfielder as its hard to understand how he was sent off in the first place.

Wellington Phoenix’ next match doesn’t come until January 24th against Newcastle Jets.
