Welsh rugby player Ben Flower was kicked out of the match after punching, and then punching again, an unconscious opponent, St Helens’ Lance Hohaia.
Many are even calling for the Flower’s arrest…
Per the Sydney Morning Herald:
“Wigan’s prop forward Ben Flower became the first man to be sent off in a Super League Grand Final after punching St Helens five-eighth Lance Hohaia to the ground, before punching him again while he lay unconscious. St Helens won the match 14-6, but Flower’s actions was the talking point. The image of a defenceless man being punched in the head by another player kneeled over him left referee Phil Bentham with no option but to give Flower his marching orders. Hohaia left the field for treatment and did not return.”
