Bloody Hell! Ben Flowers sent off in the first five minutes for an outrageous assault that would have him arrested if he did it in the street!
Blatant assault.At what point do incidents on a sport's field become a matter for the constabulary?
In sports such as Rugby, Boxing and Football (and in some kinky sex games) it is understood that you 'consent' to physical contact amounting to 'assault' in line with the spirit of the game. However, imagine the outrage if a heavyweight boxer straddled his opponent, whilst on the deck, and whacked him. This will not end well for young Ben.
