Prop Cipriano Martínez could well be facing a life ban from rugby after this brutal incident withsecond row Juan Masi in a URBA club match in Burazco on Saturday. The Argentinian violently kicks his counterpart in the head as seen in the footage below.
Martínez’s club responded with an apology to both the injured player and rugby in general, saying:
Pucará Club renounces the anti-sporting conduct which occurred in the match against San Albano. We wish to extend appropriate apologies to the injured player, to the San Albano Club, and to rugby in general. Pucará Club has taken disciplinary measures.
Martinez was red carded immediately while Masi was thankfully not believed to have been seriously hurt.
