While rugby is one of those sports where anything can happen and the opposing player will likely still take you out for a beer afterwards, that doesn’t mean there aren’t ramifications for violence. Leeds Rhinos player Mitch Garbutt has been suspended for two matches after punching a Queensland Cowboys player our of frustration as his team trailed 32-4 in the match.

The unlucky recipient was James Tamou, who appears to be no worse for the wear following the incident.

The punch did little to change Leeds’ fortune—they ended up netting no more points before falling to Queensland 38-4.

Here’s the video:
