Friday Funnies - Physio halts Zebre attack with tackle on own player

With immediate injury treatment a priority in the days of professional rugby, it's now commonplace to see physios sprint onto the field whenever a player looks like he may be in trouble. 

This was the case when Ospreys played Zebre in the Rabodirect PRO12 a few weeks back, but unfortunately the Italian side's physio ended up affecting play, taking out one of his own players with a two-footed tackle as the speedy winger broke away from the defence.

Zebre weren't able to capitalise on the open space, and Ospreys won the game 16-15.

Ouch. Can't imagine losing under those circumstances. I bet the physio feels terrible!

Investigation needed
..... Osprey's had obviously 'paid off' the physio, this could be bigger than "Bloodgate"

If I was an italian resturant in Cardiff I wouldn't serve any welsh after this - disgraceful !

He's not a wing, he is a scrum half!

Probably why he came on as reserve.
