WATCH: French rugby ref left with broken jaw after sickening punch in the face during game

A French rugby referee was left hospitalised with a broken jaw after a vicious punch in a Junior Cup match in Perpignan, France, last weekend.

Ref Benjamin Casty issued a red card only for the same player to square up the match official and unleash a powerful punch that knocked Casty unconcious.

Players from both Saint-Esteve and Toulouse then became involved in a brawl and the French Cup semi-final was abandoned after 25 minutes of play.
