League slammed for making fun of player being knocked out

The United Rugby Championship has come under fire for appearing to mock a player who was knocked out over the weekend.

Aled Summerhill, who was knocked out in the incident, tweeted: “Really didn’t think head injuries were something to joke about with all that’s going on with it within the sport, there we are then URC Official.”

In a statement, the league said: “We’d like to apologise unreservedly to Aled, his family & club for this post. Injuries are not to be made light of & our oversight processes around publishing wasn’t good enough. The original post has been removed & we will take immediate action ensuring this never occurs again.

“We recognise that the content was not in line with our values. Apologies to Aled again and we hope you have a speedy recovery!
