"Penalty, ref!"

Before you click the link below, you should know that Hull Kingston Rovers (in red) had already lost three players thanks to the savagery of their touring opponents Queensland (magenta-type hue) within the first half hour.

So, prop forward Mark Broadhurst, a New Zealand ex-boxer playing for Rovers, decided to take matters into his own hands as niggling hooker Shane Bernardin squared up to him after a tackle...

Listen out for the crowd reaction and the bloke shouting "Beautiful!" over and over again - it's my favourite bit. Watch the ref too.

The clip dates back to 1983. I don't condone it but, well, it is really rather good...
