WATCH: Massive Shoulder Charge Floors Unsuspecting Fullback

In a rather bizarre moment during this weekend’s past rugby league action in Australia’s NRL competition, a massive hit saw Cronulla Sharks’ Stuart Townsend being sent-off with immediate effect.

Knights fullback Kaylin Ponga was returning to the 22m line after receiving a kick in goal, but there was a stop in play due to an earlier infringement. Townsend (either not hearing the whistle or wanting to put in a big statement) shoulder charged Ponga when he wasn’t expecting it.

The impact was pretty brutal and has resulted in an early guilty plea from Townsend who will now miss the remainder of the season.
