Toulon’s hard-hitting number eight Duane Vermeulen was knocked out cold attempting a thumping try-saving tackle against Toulouse recently. The Springbok star will be out of action for two weeks following this big knock in Toulon’s 31-8 loss.

Vermeuelen, who nearly missed out on the World Cup following neck surgery in July, was stretchered off and taken to hospital with a head injury. He later tweeted that he was okay, but will be out of action for the next two weeks.

“Just a quick update on my injury from the past weekend top 14 clash: all good. got knocked out in the tackle and woke up with a neck spasm,” said Vermeulen, before confirming that he will be out of action within the next two weeks.

This is the same match in which Ma’a Nonu threw a bad intercept pass for Gael Fickou

    And he's French. Two to three months.

    Okay, pause at 1:11 and you might have one of the weirdest images I've seen in a rugby game. 1. The moment you realise Vermeulen has been knocked out. 2. 12's arse hanging out. 3. Dog mascot watching it all unfold.
