Getting seriously injured at an NRL game is usually reserved for the players, but two fans ended up in an ambulance while participating in half-time entertainment during last night's game between Penrith Panthers and Brisbane Broncos.
A Faulconbridge resident, who goes by the name "Shunter" on Twitter according to News Limited reports, was competing with another fan at the interval in a popular game called the ‘Big Ball Bash'.
The game sees two teams sprint from each goal line to a giant ball and attempt to push it over the opposition stripe.
But Shunter was stretchered off with a suspected broken ankle, while the other fan suffered a suspected broken shoulder after the two clashed violently during the run.
The Panthers fan took to Twitter to update his condition.

“Shunter #In #Crisis," he tweeted.
A hashtag was created to offer Shunter support, titled '#PrayforShunter'.
