Another Good, Bad and Ugly combo

First the good one – The Highlanders stuffed the Stormers 57-14 this morning and took their unbeaten run to five and running in 9 tries.

Patrick Osborne, the big Fijian wing scored twice and set up another with this lovely offload –

In contrast All Black James Broadhurst has announced his retirement after a concussion that has left him unable to play again.

This video shows the head knock back in 2015 that caused the injury –

Finally a really ugly scene in a French Cup juniors game between Saint-Esteve and Toulouse.

The ref was knocked unconscious by a player he had just red carded –

One of the worst incidents I have ever seen, although I once played in a game where a player kicked the referee. That player was banned for life and you have to assume this French bloke won’t ever be allowed on a rugby pitch again.
