Spike Milligan's theory that rugby is a game to be watched and not played gained some more credibility this morning. The Highlanders and the Waratahs are jousting in Super Rugby today, and the game has been marred by a wretched act of violence on the part of Highlanders' Tevita Nabura.
Nabura took to the skies to claim a high ball, and on his way down, inexplicably thrust his boot forward so as to catch Cameron Clark in the face. After a TMO referral, Nabura got a straight red card.
Watch it below.
