Penrith Panthers fan injured during NRL half-time entertainment

Yahoo7 Sport July 15, 2014, 10:55 am

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'.

    We beat you in the Commonwealth Games, this is a truer test between our Nations, as there are less of the other Countries in the way. 74 golds to England's 37. This was a hiding.

    With Team GB winning 29 Gold Medals in our London Olympics and you Aussie STINK winning just 7 Gold medals.The Brits won more Gold medals in 1 Olympics than you Aussie STINK have won in all your combined Olympics since the beginning. Not to mention that you aussies are totally crap in all sport THE BRITS ACHIEVE MORE SPORTING SUCCESS IN 1 YEAR THAN YOU AUSSIE STINK ACHIEVE IN A LIFETIME WITH 2 SUCCESIVE TOUR DE FRANCE TITLES BRITAINS ANDY MURRAY WINNING WIMBLEDON ALSO WINNING THE US OPEN, THE BRITISH LIONS SMASHING AUSSIES IN THE RUGBY AND OUR ENGLAND CRICKET TEAM DOING THE SAME, OUR BRIT BOXER DARREN BARKER SMASHING AUSSIE DANIEL GEALE TO BECOME IBF BOXING CHAMPION GB WINNING 4 GOLD MEDALS IN IAAF ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIP COMPARED TO AUSSIES WHO NEVER WON A SINGLE GOLD MEDAL ETC AND NOT FORGETTING GB SMASHING AUSSIES IN THE LAST 2 OLYMPIC MEDALS TALLYS ETC. SEE BELOW Aussies are STINK and STINK in sport. THE BRITS / THE ENGLISH HAVE SMASHED YOU PASTY SKINNED AUSSIE STINK IN EVERY MAJOR SPORT including The Beijing Olympics Medals Tally, Our London Olympics Medals Tally, The Ashes 3-0 & 4-1 The One Day Series 4-0 The Tour de France 2 Succesive years, The Wimbledon Tennis in which our Britains Andy Murray Won becoming the First British Man To Win in 77 years and also Won The US Open and won Gold medal for GB in Olympics, The UCI World Track Cycling Championships Where The Brits Finished on Top of The Medals Tally, The Rugby with The British Lions Thumping Aussies The Recent Netball Series 3- 0 , etc etc etc. The Trouble with you Pink Skinned Aussies is that you HAVE TO IMPORT OVERSEAS TALENT TO REPRESENT YOUR THIRD WORLD KANGAPOO NATION because your own pink skinned aussies are totally useless and just cannot compete with your sporting superiors Great Britain / Team GB. The Brits have once and for all put you Aussie wankers to Bed. Team GB won 29 Gold Medals, and Finished in 3rd place in the world compared to aussies who were lucky to win 7 Gold Medals and finished in 11th place. The Brits are TRULLY ON TOP OF THE WORLD, now they have started to fund sport, as you Aussie STINK have always done. The Union Jack Rules The Aussie Flag, as you Aussies Have No Balls to Stand up on your own two feet, But have to be dependant on The UK YOU AUSSIES HAVE NO CULTURE, NO TALENT, NO HISTORY, NO CLASS AND NO WORLD IMPORTANCE AND WILL ALWAYS REMAIN INSIGNIFICANT, INFERIOR INADEQUATE AND INSECURE., AND YOU ARE UNABLE TO SPEAK PROPER ENGLISH AND INSULT OUR LANGUAGE WITH YOUR NASTY TWANGY AUSSIE ACCENT. THE ENGLISH ACCENT IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD AND IS LIKE MUSIC TO THE EARS . The UK are at a distinct disadvantage in sport with our cold rainy climate unsuitable for sport, and yet continue to smash you Aussies who have an advantage with your sunny climate and outdoor lifestyle ideal for sport. I had the misfortune of visiting your third world country Australia, and the first thing I noticed is how ugly pink skinned and unattractive your population is that resembles your ugly pink skinned Olympians. Not to mention that you guys are approx 15 years behind the UK, and Australia is a predominantly pink skinned country compared to the UK that has 5 generations of British Born Black people, similar to the ethnic diversity of the USA. What makes me laugh is that you aussie STINK think that you are multicultural when you have only recently started allowing non whites into your third world kangapoo nation and you do not have any real black people with African decent like in the UK and the USA. Your aborigines are not classed as Black because they do not have African heritage. It has been established that Aussies have an INFERIORITY COMPLEX to the BRITS. . The Brits Won more than 4 times the Gold Medals won by Australia and per Capita / Population The Brits are on top of the world. So if you Aussie wankers are going to respond to me , try not to be too much of a bad loser, and get your facts right after all you aussies should be used to losing, as your third world country is a nation of losers. Rule Britannia, Britannia Rules The Waves. The Brits and the rest of the world laugh at you aussies because of the lack of your sporting success and the inability to win anything, . Now that the Brits have started to get Sports Funding , we will continue to smash you aussie wankers in everything. Quick Medals Update Beijing Olympic games Great Britain 19 Gold Medals, Aussie wankers 13 Gold Medals. Our London Olympic Games Great Britain 29 Gold Medals Aussie wankers 7 Gold Medals. Ha ha ha You Aussie Wankers are Insignificant Inferior, Inadequate, The World Revolves around The Brits, but you Aussies are the Worlds STINK and have No Influence what so ever
