This week's funny features videos of referees getting knocked over, and knocked out. As proven over the years, refs taking a tumble always provide for a laugh or too. You may have seen the videos before but as always, Rugby HQ have thrown them together brilliantly.

Surely Alain Rolland's refereeing of the World Cup semi-final should be in there? If ever a blooper was made...

Ref hits always make me wince...
1) They never see it coming.
2) If they do, they can't do a thing about it
3) They are normal sized human beings
4) No gumshield.

A falcon however... that is just downright hilarious, even refs laugh once their nose has stopped bleeding.

I remember a good scrum in U18s, I was scrum half, the ref was having all sorts of hassle with the front row, so he was right in there up close. Re-set the scrum again, moved the rows half a pace closer, leant right in, Crouch... Touch... and as he called engage, the prop swung his arm round to get the bind.... a perfect (if unintentional) left hook from our loosehead square on the ref's chin laid him flat out on the turf, seeing stars. I would have felt bad, but in training he would put 10 point bounties on my head if someone could rip my Italy shirt off my back, or pull my hair every ruck till I got fed up and cut it.

Needless to say he ref'd scrums from the other side for the rest of the match.

Makes me laugh, Burgers push on Owens to my knowledge goes unpunished and yet this gets a ban?!
