Julian White floors Andrew Sheridan with one punch

Julian White floors Andrew Sheridan with one punch

Farmer Julian White was red carded yesterday as the Leicester Tigers roared back to the top of the Guinness Premiership with a 37-31 win over Sale.

White, 35 years old and owning 250 sheep and a heard of cows on his Leicester farm, now faces a ban for his haymaker on England team mate Andrew Sheridan.

He will more than likely miss their crunch Heineken Cup quarter-final meeting with Bath next weekend because of his moment of madness.

Coming up from their fierce scrum battle, Sheridan and White came to blows, with the younger man throwing the first punch, a short left jab. White barely blinked though before decking the Sale powerhouse.

White was sent from the field with no hesitation by referee Wayne Barnes, with the Tigers being left with 14 men for the majority of this pulsating match. For them to come out victors is a true indication of the spirit in the camp right now.

The bonus point victory hoists Leicester to the top of the Guinness Premiership. They could be without White for some time though, which will be decided in a disciplinary hearing in the next few days.
