Friday Funnies - Referee knocked out by clearing kick

Friday Funnies - Referee knocked out by clearing kick


There’s still time for a Friday Funny today as this clip was sent in that features a scrumhalf doing something that the frustrated amongst you possibly wish you were able to do – knock a ref out while making it look accidental.

Seriously though, the ref in this clip took one of the biggest falcons – as it’s called in those parts – that we’ve seen in a long time as the ball is cleared directly into his face.

It’s the Kuttabul Camelboks up against Slade Point in Mackay a few weeks back as they’re battling it out in the MDRU in Queensland, Australia.

The clip speaks for itself, but as you can see the poor ref gets himself right in the path of the clearing number nine’s kick, getting a faceful of leather while spending a few minutes dreaming of better days.

Check out how far back the ball travels after it smashes him in the face. I wonder if the fullback had marked that, if it would have been allowed? Not that it matters – there was no ref.

If anyone has any further info about the origins of the clip, please feel free to get in touch. Have a great weekend all, enjoy the rugby, and if you’re going to be reffing, stay on your toes.
