This simple act of kindness from Nigel Owens is amazing rugby fans around the World
Nigel Owens is known by many rugby fans as one of the greatest, if not the greatest rugby referee that there has ever been. This simple but incredible act of kindness by him has taken rugby fans by storm.
What amazed everyone was when the referee offered to help du Plessis when he was oosing blood from his broken nose.
The 38-year-old Glasgow prop posted this on his social media after the break…
That break was pretty average for prop standards, who call this kind of injury a little knock. Backs would be on the slab after a hit like this.
What truly was amazing in this clip was that Petrus du Plessis was gushing a lot of blood from his nose when he broke his nose.
The game paused for a lineout and the Welsh referee spotted that the prop was struggling. Owens, being the standout human that he was instantly offered to let the prop rub the blood from his nose on the back of his shirt.
The commentators during the match instantly remarked about how this was brilliant sportsmanship from him.
