The Munster out-half and the referee that Munster fans often love to hate slot in at number two in another excellent edition of the Rugby HQ Top Five this week, focussing on the some of the lighter moments featuring the men in the middle from down through the years. Falling over, getting trampled on by giants of men running at full pace, that kind of thing.

We know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking ‘why isn’t the episode with Keatley and Barnes – which occurred during Munster’s Heineken Cup clash with Racing Metro last year – number one?’ Well rugby fans, that’s because number one happens to be an even more vicious and entirely accidental rugby ball to the face suffered by a referee in Australia a few years back.

Trust us, it ain’t pretty.
