Ben Flower First Player To Ever Be Sent Off In Grand Final After This Vicious Attack On Lance Hohaia

Ben Flower made history yesterday becoming the first man to ever be sent off during a Grand Final – here’s why.

Two minutes into yesterday’s Super League Grand Final, Wigan prop Ben Flower was sent off for a senseless attack on St Helens stand-off Lance Hohaia.

Flower had spilled the ball in the first minute, and then following a clash with Hohaia, he knocked his opponent to the ground with a left hook and then smashed him again as he lay motionless on the ground.

Even Joey Barton thought it was a bit much:

Here’s the shocking footage:

Flower was sent off and officials are looking into whether they should also discipline him off the field.

Here’s hoping he doesn’t give slow-motion unicycle rugby a try.
