French Rugby Player Gets Absolutely Clobbered

French fly-half Jules Plisson got pummeled by England's Courtney Lawes in their Six Nations match today. The hit was so vicious that you can hear an instinctive "ohhhhhh!" ring around the stadium in the video below.

The hit caused a somewhat bizarre scene on the pitch as medics ran on to tend to Plisson, a few players from each team began to push and shove each other, but the majority continued to play. The referee eventually stopped play and reviewed everything, but judged that Lawes was already making the tackle when Plisson got rid of the ball, so it wasn't a late hit, and none of the extracurricular pushing and shoving merited a penalty.
