Midweek Madness - Medics drop prop Bogdan Balan

Montauban prop Bogdan Balan picked up an ankle injury during their impressive 45-31 win over Racing Metro on the weekend. Unfortunately for him though, his journey off the pitch wasn't quite smooth sailing.

Last week the Midweek Madness clip that was featured was about a player being penalised for shouting on the field. Opinions were mixed about whether or not the penalty was necessary, but I think we’ll all agree that in today’s clip, the player involved would have been forgiven for making a bit of noise about it.

When you’ve been badly injured and realise your game is over, you basically just want to get off the park in the trusted hands of the medical team and support staff. If you’re stretchered off, you’re generally feeling pretty sore to start with.

Montauban’s Romanian front rower Balan unfortunately injured his ankle quite badly as a scrum went down midway through the match. The medical support he received looked to be excellent, right up until the point where they dropped him.

As you watch them walking off, you can see something isn’t right as there’s two tiny girls at the back who clearly don’t look comfortable with what has been asked of them.

Eventually he goes down to the turf in a heap as they struggle to hold him up. It’s pretty shocking to see, but luckily it didn’t seem to cause any further damage so we can have a chuckle about it and hope it never happens again. Someone please buy them a golf cart.

  • Totally justified to yell at the guys, maybe not the girl medics though! ;)
