I'm no expert when it comes to rugby, but I think that it's safe to say that we have finally reached Peak Rugby, and it's all thanks to Tom Youngs and Salesi Ma'afu.

In a recent match between Leicester and Northampton, Ma'afu and Youngs got into a scuffle that ended with Ma'afu crashing a left hook into Youngs's jaw. As you can see, it was a pretty good shot from Ma'afu.

But Youngs took the KO in stride, and even congratulated Ma'afu on his punch after the game:


Ma'afu responded in kind:

See? It can't possibly get any more rugby than that.
