Clermont Auvergne’s Morgan Parra controversially returns to his side’s Champions Cup clash with Northampton Saints after seemingly being knocked out earlier in the game.
The halfback somehow passed his HIA (Head Injury Assessment) and was allowed return to play the rest of the game as Clermont secured a 24-7 win over the Saints.
Parra brought back on despite referee stating he was unconscious.

Morgan Parra getting knocked out, purely because of poor tackle technique. Sticking the jaw infront of a knee? #ChampionsCup

Can’t believe Morgan Parra is still playing for Clermont, he must be nearly 50 isn’t he?? 😂😂

Morgan Parra being allowed back onto the pitch after being knocked out shows how poor the HIA and new tackle laws are
