With ten minutes left in the Top 14 game against Castres on the weekend, Stade Francais replacement David Skrela came on after a three month injury layoff, replacing starting flyhalf Lionel Beauxis.
Skrela had literally been on the field less than a minute before getting his first touch, a clearing kick, when Castres flanker Vosloo welcomed him to the game in his own special way.
The big hit earned Vosloo a yellow card, despite him trying to look as innocent as possible after mistiming the challenge, and instead of pulling out of it, just followed through. He did make an attempt to wrap his arms though, so it's one of those that could go either way. The ref felt the only way it was going was to the sin bin, so off the abrasive Vosloo went.
Fair play to Skrela though, who got up pretty quickly and walked away.
Note: Thanks for the prompt translations guys.
