Rugby Reporter Attacked On Live TV

Australian Sports Reporter Ben Davis got more than he bargained for when he was covering the Brisbane/Melbourne Rugby match on Sunday night. He'd been harassed numerous times by several drunk fans, including one who tried to stick his tounge in Davis' ear.

"They had been hanging around during the commercial break and I had said to them 'if you want to carry on national television that is fine; just don't touch me on air'," Davis said last night.
Davis took a conciliatory tone, but history has shown that the appeasement method just doesn't work. The fruits of his kindness didn't pay off. Instead, he got beat up. Live. On the air. Check it out.

"There was about four or five of them, I confronted (one) off air, saying 'I don't come to your workplace and do this' and then his brother and a couple of others came in and hit me in the head a couple of times. We all ended up on the ground."
Luckily, despite being tackled, punched, and kicked, Davis managed to escape unharmed but for some injuries to his hands and wrists. The authorities claim that they're close to identifying the attackers, and hopefully justice will be served. In a wise move, and perhaps the only way to get someone to ever cover Rugby in the field again, Davis' network, Channel 7, has pledged to beef up security for its sports reporters from now on.

The only real question I have now about this is what would happen to Lee Corso if College Gameday went on with the lax, or lack of security that Davis had. Keep your pencil sharpened, Corso, you'll need it to defend yourself!

Well, it's not exactly getting killed while riding in a convoy in Iraq, but I guess it would be categorized as a hazard of the occupation. You'd think there would be nothing to worry about at a sporting event, though.

Small point of difference. He was reporting on Rugby League, not Rugby Union.

The big story here is that they are Australians...

Damn Aussies!

Really he was asking for it. There are some things you dont do and confronting drunk rugby league fans, they'l just think of it as a challenge!

As you will all know British Rugby League’s Premier tournament, The Super League, started up again last weekend as we witnessed The Leeds Rhinos begin their defence of the title with an unconvincing win over a determined Hull KR side. It got me thinking because I’m a man who likes to gamble, and I particularly enjoy a bit of rugby league betting, whether or not Leeds can defend the super league trophy successfully. So I had a look on a gambling website (see link) to find out Leeds were evens with the Saints... Fair enough. But the same company have Wigan and Hull FC (not KR!) less likely to win that Warrington... You can back Wigan, who are led by the former Great Britain coach – Brian Noble, to win the regular season and the grand final (separate bets) at 10-1... This is Good value people. Backing Hull FC would get you a 14-1 return, which is also incredibly good value, given they are now under former New Zealand coach Peter Sharp, who knows what he is doing... All this while the consistently inconsistent Warrington Wolves are down to win at 13-2... I think if I was a Warrington fan I would bet on Wigan or Hull, or maybe even Bradford who are priced 10-1...
