John Smit tosses a player's boot and gets penalised

John Smit tosses a player's boot and gets penalised

And now for something completely different.

We've all done it before - seen a players boot on the floor, or pulled one off in the tackle, and been tempted to toss it away like you would with that old FHM you've had since you were twelve.

John Smit found out this weekend in France that some refs evidently don't view tossing a players boot lightly though. Maybe it's dangerous play. Maybe it's theft. Who knows, but it was rather comical to say the least, and got Clermont's opposition, Catres, a penalty from Smit's blatant disregard for the laws of the game.

Good to see Smitty's still making headlines in Europe after his World Cup achievements. But I think next time the boot will be aimed towards the whistle blower instead.
