This happened a few nights ago during a match between the Bronco's and Rabbitohs.

The ref gets in the way and cops a brutal knee to the face.

Was just a case of wrong place wrong time. Can't blame either player for this. Good effort from Tony trying to jump over him, he is just a little to big for it to have been successful.

Think the ref may still be groggy now, was a nasty hit.

Yeah he could have, but I thought it would have been the refs responsibility to make sure that he is not impeding the play of the ball.

Seriously though, the red/green team's uniform was quite tacky

I agree, the part where he fell over was funny but the KO was terrible to watch.

Geez :pale That's a shocker.

Dude that knocked him down could have SO easily run past him though instead of charging in with a shoulder :confused:

On the COUNTLESS replays that I have seen you could almost argue there is a look of intent on his face as he runs towards him.

For Broncos fans that adds to their Origin woes :p
Only won once in about 7 games.

Id pretty much think so.
They are getting belted week in week out apart from the Warriors game.
