Fans disgust as Quins target and injure Munster star Ben Healy in shocking Challenge Cup scenes

Irish rugby fans are not happy at all today as footage has emerged showing Harlequins players deliberately targeting Munster 10 Ben Healy in the Challenge Cup.

Images have emerged showing players Joe Marler and Alex Dombrandt putting in deliberate and calculated hits on the much-talked-about Irish 10 who has emerged through the Irish academy.

It looks like the London-based side were instructed to intentionally go after the 21-year-old fly in their pre-match tactics.

The hits were so bad on the player that he will miss the team’s next few weeks of rugby.

Harlequins have one of the worst track record among club sides for falling on the wrong side of the law.

Last season the club was given 16 yellow cards, one of the highest dished out among any team in Europe. Could this be because the players can’t be controlled, or because the coach instructs them to play this way.

Below Murray Kinsella, a rugby journalist, documented the hits and how poor they were.

This is undoubtedly not a good look for Harlequins rugby, and we are sure that some kind of investigation will need to take place. There is targeting a player in a game, and proactively going out of your way to hurt someone.
