Friday Funnies - Stephen Donald low blow

All Black World Cup winner Stephen Donald played a large part in Bath's convincing win over a weakened Northampton Saints team in the LV= Cup on the weekend. He did however take a bit of a knock in the second half, which apparently needs to be shared.

As with in other sports, when a player takes a knock below the belt, it's usually absolutely hilarious for those around him. That sounds a bit sick and twisted, but we all know it's true.

It's definitely something to do with having experienced the pain oneself before, therefore finding amusement in someone else suffering from it, albeit temporarily. There were actually a few requests from RD users to see this again believe it or not, so here it is.

Saints flyhalf Stephen Myler booted the loose ball down field after the whistle, except that Donald and his groin area happened to be in the way. While it's difficult to be an expert on such matters, it appears as though it didn't hit him square in the jewels, luckily.

Ironically, as with the twisted nature of male sports, if it had been more damaging, we no doubt would have got a bigger laugh out of this. Karma is a tricky thing.
