Perpignan’s Richard Haughton was left with the visible battle wounds after a bruising Heineken Cup defeat to Munster on Saturday.

The last-gasp try for Rob Penney’s men sees Munster take pole position in the pool after back-to-back victories over Perpignan, and utility back Haughton was left with a nasty looking head injury.

Despite the game being a hard-fought affair, the wound itself had nothing to do with the opposition and was in fact as a result of his team-mate Sébastien Vahaamahina’s unfortunate stomp to the head that saw the Englishman forced to leave the field of play in the 19th minute.
