GRAPHIC: Sky Sports slammed for showing replay of Australia stars arm break

Sky Sports have been slammed for showing multiple replays as Wallabies fullback Tom Banks fell nastily on his arm.

Jordan Petaia replaced the full back, who was carted off the field with the injury.

Despite the fury directed at Sky Sports, it is in fact Australian broadcasters who were in control of the replays.

Five of the WORST career ending injuries in rugby

1) Rob Horne 

The 30-year-old, who suffered several serious arm injuries at elite level, was forced to retire after sustaining nerve damage in his right arm when playing for Northampton Saints against Leicester Tigers in the English Premiership in early 2018.

A hard-running outside centre capped 34 times for Australia, Horne was leading try-scorer for the Saints with eight.

Before crossing to the Saints, Horne enjoyed a successful 10-year stint with Sydney’s New South Wales Waratahs and was a member of the 2014 team that captured a maiden Super Rugby title under the guidance of Michael Cheika, the current Wallabies boss.

Horne represented Australia at the 2011 and 2015 World Cups, and played against the British and Irish Lions in 2013.
