Watch: Dick Hardwick knocked out in head on head collision
Apparently competition for match day squad positions at the Melbourne Rebels has been so intense this season they’ve been ‘wasting each other’ at training. Openside Richard Hardwick took things one step further on the weekend, flying headfirst into Emiliano Boffelli and wasting himself in the process. The young man was out cold before he even hit the ground.
We wish him a speedy recovery.

Welsh rugby is broke. If you play in the system you don't earn what you could even 2hr flight away. But those clubs want you full time. Nz players face a similar dilemma but the reality is all black staus puts a premium on your value that only a lions cap might approach. The difference in right now money is clearly to great. We have lost and are losing talent as well but the machine keeps feeding replacements. Charles Piatau as it stands today would never have earned the money had he stayed, in coaching Pat Lamb same. He'll he earned More than Eddie or Gats. But those golden days are over. Thankfully for nz. But France and Japan are the model of corporate/ billionaire owners with a mind to rights and merch dollars that have the power right now. But they follow the us club sport/ UK euro soccer club professional model. God help us all if the US gets there shit together. With or without oil money. Ultimately top players have a limited life span to earn that can end next week. Imagine if you got told you have maybe fifteen years to make 90 % of you life's salary AND one injury could mean that is reduced what ever you current contract is worth.?? What would YOU DO?Go to comments
I'm sure that I'd hate him if I didn't support the Hurricanes and All Blacks but as it is I love that man to death.Go to comments
