Wallabies captain Michael Hooper became the most yellow-carded player in Test match history over the weekend, after chalking up his eight Test sinbin against England on Saturday afternoon.
Hooper was represented his country on 78 different occasions, 72 of them came as starts, while 6 came from the replacement bench. This means he picks up a yellow every 9.75 Test matches.
Saturday’s yellow put him one ahead of Italy’s Marco Bortolami, South African Bryan Habana and former Canada lock Jamie Cudmore, who all sit on seven.
Cudmore managed to rack up his seven yellows in just 43 games, while the other two both played 100+ games for their country.
