We’ve seen it all now. In the Pro12 match between Leinster and Scarlets, much loved referee Nigel Owens got hit in the back by the ball when an overeager ball boy tossed it back into play. Always seeing the funny side of things, Owen’s whipped out his yellow card.
After the game Owens, widely recognised as the best referee in the world, tweeted about the amusing moment and said that he will be happy to send his match jersey to the ball boy.

Contact was made, and he later said that the – washed – jersey will be on it’s way shortly.
