Knocked Out Rugby Player, Still Scores

'Better than sex' is how footballer's regularly describe scoring a goal. In fairness we don't have masses of experience at either, but we know that that feeling is a positive and not a negative.

In the world of rugby league we doubt the euphoria is quite so extreme. So often a player gets clattered on his march to the try line that the pain surely reduces the joy. Or perhaps it enhances it?

Either way, there's little to no joy reveberating through Sam Tomkins body in this video. There's very little going on at all. The unfortunate Wigan full-back was knocked unconscious by a punch from Bradford's Gareth Raynor while storming through for a try.

Hats well and truly off to Tomkins whose body may have gone limp, but the ball didn't drop from his arms meaning the try counted.

Raynor was invited to leave the pitch (and for 'invited', read 'told') and his side went on to lose 26-22. Tonight he will face a charge of making a high tackle to the head or neck.

Clearly Tomkins didn't finish the match, but Wigan expect him to be fit for their next game, at home to Hull KR next Monday.

Rock. Hard.
