Former NRL Player Konrad Hurrell Gets Knocked Out In Super League 'Mass Brawl'

Konrad Hurrell was knocked out cold by a rival player, sparking a 'mass brawl' between Salford and Leeds in the Super League.

Salford Red Devils captain Lee Mossop dropped the ex-NRL player with a single punch after Hurrell took exception to a bit of niggle in the tackle.

After a quick play of the ball, former Warriors star Hurrell ran after the opposition player to confront him - except Mossop didn't appear to be the initial aggressor.

That soon changed though, as Mossop loaded up an overhand right which caught the onrushing Hurrell flush on the chin.

The Leeds forward dropped to the turf and lay motionless while his Rhinos teammates came charging over to have a not-so-quiet word with Mossop.

What followed was scuffle between the two teams with some plenty of jersey pulling a couple of cheeky shots the referee didn't pick up on.

Thankfully Hurrell eventually regained consciousness and finally found his feet as he was escorted from the field by medical staff.

As for Mossop, he was sent for an early shower after receiving a straight red card from the no-nonsense referee.

Incredibly, Hurrell showed an impressive amount of sportsmanship by high-fiving Mossop as the duo left the field

The ex-NRL star saw the funny side of things after the game too, taking to social media to say: "Had a quick nap today and woke up to a great win from the boys. #youdeadman #oua."

With the possibility of his skipper being suspended, opposition coach Richard Marshall wasn't in the same boat as Hurrell in seeing the funny side of things.

"Hurrell ran after him, Mossop was defending himself," Salford boss Marshall said in defence of his player.

"It was an act of self-defence in my opinion. There was nothing in the contact of the tackle."
