In a recent tour match in San Jose we saw this horrific headclash just three minutes into the contest. The USA’s Zee Ngwenya flew into Italy’s Leonardo Sarto, knocking them both out instantly.
Play was held up for quite some time as they both received treatment in what was one of the uglist knockouts seen on a rugby field.
Ngwenya, a seasoned professional after many years in France, went in way too high, resulting in what was effectively a headbutt at speed. Both players were out before they hit the turf.
Italy won the match 24-20.
Sarto recently signed for Glasgow Warriors on a two year contract, moving from Zebre, while Ngwenya left Biarittz a while back and now plays for San Diego in the new Pro Rugby USA. He showed how quick he still is by scoring a great try a few weeks back.
