Ugly Club Rugby Incident Caught On Camera

In one of the ugliest incidents caught on camera in recent memory, a video of a player kicking another player in the face has been doing the rounds on social media.

In what started as a run of the mill ruck, the attacking team were protecting a heavily contested ruck.

All looked normal until the reckless number 26 came through first with the knee and then followed through with a kick.

In a world where the safety of the game is continually debated incidents like this are shocking to see in the game.

Writing in the video description the player who was on the receiving end said,

“I’m the guy who got his lights knocked out. 2 weeks of concussive symptoms, and two months into rehab for my left MCL and I find out this is only worthy of a one match ban.”

“You could argue that the first impact was unintentional. But I would argue that he intentionally did not hold back. Anyone here who’s played rugby for a number of years can see that he was in no position to contest the ruck. I’d like to think most of us would’ve just held back from crashing in knees first into a ruck.”

“I don’t have much else to say about the follow through. Needless to say there was no card given during the match.”

“Given the recent bans/cards given out at an alarming rate, for clear-outs less dangerous than this. I found it absolutely ridiculous for it to be a one match ban.”

“It’s probably my fourth or fifth concussion over 15 years of playing. And I’m seriously considering walking away from the sport I love so much. Being side-lined for over two months being unable to exercise has really taken its toll. Now that I’m a new father as well, maybe I need to stop putting myself in risky situations…”
