VIDEO: Rugby player's dad helps son in fight

In most jobs, it's not ideal to have your dad jump to your defence when times get tough, unless you're part of a father/son wrestling tag-team of course.

When playing professional, top division rugby, it's probably the worst possible time.

French international Imanol Harinordoquy found himself on the receiving end of some rough treatment during a match between Biarritz and Bayonne so his dad thought it was best for him to run down from the stands and get involved.

He launched himself at the player that his son had been fighting with but was quickly tackled to the ground.

Just to put things in even more perspective, Imanol Harinordoquy is 6ft 3in and weighs 17 stone. Yeah, thanks dad.
