final seconds of match England v USA - Rugby World Cup 2007

Rugby World Cup 2007 - Pool A
Olly Barkley stood out for England in what was an otherwise dismal performance. The United States are hardly a rugby super-power but managed to at least look competitive against the World Champions, England.

Here, in the final seconds of match, we see an unfortunate incident. Olly Barkley is upended by an American centre. Surely there was little malice, but it was still very dangerous.

As the tournament wears on, the games will get bigger. Which means the hits will get bigger.
