French Rugby League player knocks out referee with punch


    In a juniors French Cup match between Saint-Esteve and Toulouse, a Saint-Esteve player was shown a yellow card and sent to the penalty box by the referee,then all hell broke out.


    In a gutless move the Saint-Esteve player decided to show the referee how he felt about the call and his officiating by suckering him with a vicious right hand and knocking him out.

    Enjoy never playing this game again, he should receive a life time ban at the very least.


    As for the referee, he was taken to a nearby hospital and was diagnosed with cheekbone and jaw injuries.
