Rugby Player Knocks Out Referee With Vicious Punch After Getting A Yellow Card [Video]

A French rugby league player is facing a life-time ban after cold-cocking a referee who pulled a yellow card on him. The referee was knocked unconscious and suffered severe cheek and jawbone injuries.

The Saint-Esteve player, who has not been identified, has already been suspended for four matches this season for reckless behavior, according to St-Esteve president Christian Cozza.

The president of the French Federation, Marc Palanques, said that the hammer needs to be dropped on this lunatic:

“I hope that the National Disciplinary Commission, which will meet on Wednesday, will be uncompromising.”

Lifetime ban? We should be talking criminal assault charges here.
