Ref gets trucked by rugby player

Sunday August 17th, 2014

Officiating a contact sport like rugby has its disadvantages, like the risk of getting bowled over by a player at full-speed. One referee experienced just that during a recent matchup between New Zealand and Australia.

Good news: The ref is OK. Better news: He was also wearing a camera, giving us a glorious, first-person account of the event.   


Ouch.
