Ref Knocked Out By Rugby Ball To The Face (Video)

For those who think that refereeing is a great way to get involved in the game without having to suffer the painful injuries endured by those doing the playing, think again.  Whether it is a Paul Pierce right hook, or a headbutt from an angry goalkeeper, there is always something, or someone, to be weary of for the men in stripes.

In this case, it was the very rugby ball that was being played with.

This ref was trying to get a good look at the ball as it was buried in a ruck, but as it turned out, he would end up getting a little too close a look.
