South Sydney veteran Dane Gagai was caught by broadcaster's microphones using expletive laden language in one of many incidents across a spiteful Friday night contest between the Rabbitohs and Roosters

Gagai, 30, was heard to ask referee Ashley Klein "Are you f***ing kidding me?" after becoming the third player to be sent from Suncorp Stadium in the clash between the bitter rivals.

The Origin representative had been slapped with a 10-minute stint in the sin-bin following his involvement in a brawl during a match-up that many believe Klein had rapidly lost control of.

Gagai followed Sydney's Sitili Tupouniua to the bin following the pair's entanglement in the wake of Latrell Mitchell's diabolical head-high hit on the Chooks' centre, Joey Manu.

The outgoing back has since been hit with a $1600 fine for contrary conduct by the NRL Judiciary.

Unlike his Latrell Mitchell whose season is over after being offered a ban of anywhere between six to nine weeks for his malicious shot on his former teammate, Gagai will be free to partake in the Bunnies upcoming finals campaign.
