Leicester vs Leinster at Wellford Road yesterday turned out to be somewhat of a classic. A game full of incident and good rugby, it was marred by a few moments of insanity that are hard to comprehend.
Big English front rower Julian White clearly lost his head after something must have been done to him deep in the trenches of the front row. He lost his cool completely, throwing a few airshots and then lining up big Malcolm O'Kelly and lauching a right hook that would have knocked most mere mortals to the ground.
The human punch-bag O'kelly barely budged, and White got sent to the bin with nothing more than a yellow card. The citing commission is going to be busy this week.
