Melbourne Rebels flanker Josh Kemeny made an assist for the opposition with his face during Sunday’s Super Rugby AU clash with the Brumbies.
The flanker was tracking back to help out his teammate Matt Toomua who was under pressure five metres from his own try line when the fly half attempted a clearance kick, which stuck Kemeny directly in the face.
The ball then ricocheted off his face and directly into the path of flanker Rory Scott, who fed Bayley Kuenzle for a simple try in the corner in the 52nd minute of the match.
