Injured Rugby League Player Miraculously Healed Once Punches Start Being Thrown

Today’s English rugby league championship match between Oldham Roughyeds and Rochdale Hornets ended in fisticuffs sparked by a head injury to Rochdale’s Danny Yates—a blow levied by his own teammate’s elbow, left a visible hematoma on Yates’s skull, but one that didn’t keep the scrum-half from entering the fray itself once he realized what was going on.

Rochdale claimed a 38-28 win, and Oldham’s Sam Gee earned a red card for his role in the brawl.
