Midweek Madness - Substitute that bloody Ref

Midweek Madness - Substitute that bloody Ref

Weve featured quite a few referee related clips here on RD in the past, most of which have involved the ref being knocked over, tackled, losing his footing, and last week we even saw a ref tackle a player. Todays clip though, is a first.

Stade Francais beat Castres 21-16 in the Top 14 on Friday night courtesy of a late try by young French international Mathieu Bastareaud.

The win has all by sealed the Parisians place in the Top 14 Semi Finals.

The moment were showing you today though happened in the first half and resulted in referee Jean-Pierre Matheu leaving the field for good.

Poor old Matheu found himself in the middle of a Stade and Castres sandwich, with big Rodrigo Capo Ortega's head colliding with his lip.

No prizes for guessing who came off second best in that confrontation.
