One sport might see shades of other sport and it’s no news. So Cricket often shows a bit of soccer in it when a bowler or fielder try to kick the ball with their legs, but to see a Kung-Fu like move in a Rugby match is quite incredible.
Tevita Nabura of Newzealand club Highlanders kicked Cam Clark of Australian team New South Wales Waratahs in the face while collecting a high ball in the teams super rugby encounter. The incident occurred at the 19th minute and soon he was dismissed by the referee for the incident, his team also suffered a 42-12 defeat to their rivals.Here is the video of the Kick

Nabura for his high kick has been handed a 12 week ban for the act by the leagues Foul Play Committee on Firday, although the punishment has been diluted to half for the players “remorse his inexperience and his guilty plea at the first available opportunity”
