Watch: Aussie rugby player gets demolished by much larger opponent
The University of Queensland rugby team is — according to Wikipedia — nicknamed the Red Heavies.
A Sunnybank player had the misfortune of running into the heaviest last weekend.
The poor guy was running sideways in search of a passing target when he was planted into the ground by Queensland’s No. 16 — whom The Big Lead speculates is a kid named Kieran FitzGibbon.
The Sunnybank player remained down on the turf, and — adding insult to injury — his team was called for a penalty just seconds later.
Queensland took possession and immediately sprinted the length of the field for a try.
The game was closer than it looked, Queensland came away with the 38-31 win over Sunnybank.
