    Default Straight up thuggery

    Caught this over at RD. What could possibly warrant this thuggery?! Looks like he might get some jail time. I know that if this happened on a team I played for, the offender would have a tough time making it off the pitch.

    The two involved were the last two players up from last tackle. Something else must have occurred.

    I see nothing (literally, black screen, no video plays)

    If you saw it at Rugby Dump, perhaps you could post a link to their video?

    Old, old news - at least in America.

    It's even worse than it looks because the perpetrator wasn't a registered player. Over here, that's a program killer.

    That's the moral of the story???

    There was some minor pushing as both of the players got up from the tackle. Then at the next stoppage of play the a few second later the player in white bends down to tie is shoe, and the player in black walks over to him and kicks him in the face.

    Moral of the story is don't act like a thug.

    that's a good question. I'm no shrink, but people normally don't act in an irrational manner (unless drugged in some way or under some extreme duress). I wonder what did happen in the lead up?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    What happened before is neither here nor there. Yes, it would seem that something did happen to provoke a resonce but discussion of that can be left to the courts. NOTHING warrants that sort of behaviour on a rugby pitch.


    For a referee to say "Moral of story Never let your guard down." is worrying to read.

    At about 28 seconds on the left edge of the screen., the two players (Black 12 and White 8) are in contact with each other and something happens. Black 12 has said..."he was 'not sorry' for his actions as he was acting in 'self-defence".

    Maybe he was threatened in some way?

    Maybe he had been, but he was not being threatened by a player yards away doing up his boots.
