Nigel Owens is looking for the ballboy that hit him with the ball… so he can give him a reward

Nigel Owens, once again, proving what a sound man he is.

His place high on the list of the soundest men in sport was already pretty safe, but Nigel Owens reminded everyone why he is so beloved during Leinster’s Pro12 clash with Scarlets at the RDS on Saturday.

As you’ve probably seen by now, an unsighted Owens was struck on the back of the head by a ball thrown in from the side of the pitch by a ballboy, but instead of reacting angrily, he jokingly flashed a yellow card in his direction instead.

It made for a great piece of sporting television…

Proving what a nice guy he is once again, Owens posted on Twitter on Saturday night looking for the identity of the ballboy in question so he could give him his match jersey to show (even though it was already pretty obvious) that was all in good fun.

Does anyone know who it is? Feel free to hit us up on Facebook, Twitter or editorial@JOE.ie if you do know and we’ll do our best to put them in touch with one of the nicest men in sport.

Well played, Nigel.
