LEGEND: The ball boy who hit Nigel Owens in the head gets special delivery

Top rugby referee Nigel Owens has delivered on his promise to a Leinster ball-boy who he dished out a yellow card to last month.

Owens took to Twitter after the match to seek the young Irish fan. “This is why rugby is the greatest team sport in the world. Anyone know the ballboy? Will send him my match Jersey to keep. #goodsport,” said Owens.

And last night, after a delay from the post service, the jersey finally arrived.
