Nigel Owens keeps his promise following his yellow card to ball-boy

In the dying minutes of a Pro 12 clash between Leinster and Scarlets, ball boy Joe Downey attempted to throw the ball to the Scarlets players in order to take a penalty.

The ball however struck Nigel Owens in the back, triggering rugby comedy gold and yet another highlight for the referee’s already bursting library of memorable moments.

With the help of his Twitter army, Owens was able to make contact with the sin-binned ball boy and has now sent him match jersey.
