Classy Moment As Opposition Players Rush To Help Concussed NRL Star

This is the side of footy players we don't often talk about.

During the fiery local derby between the Penrith Panthers and Wests Tigers in the NRL, a heartwarming moment stood out above all.

There had already been a couple of heated exchanges during the clash, but both sets of players put their bad blood to one side when one of the players on the field was in need of some help.

Panthers second-rower Isaah Yeo took a nasty blow to the head following a big collision with Tigers forward Matt Eisenhuth in the second half.

Stumbling away from the tackle, it was clear that Yeo had been badly concussed.

Struggling to find his balance, Yeo hit the deck before finding his feet once more.

But it wasn't long before the players and referees came to his aid.

Referee Ben Cummins was quick to stop the game after the incident, which is when several players from both teams - including Cummins himself - rushed over and held Yeo up in order to stop him from falling over again.

A number of Tigers and Panthers players were on hand to help as game official Cummins called over the team physio for further assessment.

Among the players on hand for support were Tigers trio Eisenhuth, Elijah Taylor and Moses Mbye as well as Yeo's Penrith teammate Liam Martin.

The compassionate moment - in what was a hotly-contested game - was caught on the Fox League cameras.

When replays of the incident were aired at full-time, fans took to social media to praise the players and referees that helped while also sending their best wishes to Yeo.
