Horacio Agulla and Maxime Mermoz´s frightening Headclash

Argentina´s match against France in Lille was marred by a secondhalf incident which saw Los Pumas veteran winger, Horacio Agulla being forced from the field. He was stretchered off after being knocked out while attempting a tackle. The Bath winger went in at maximum velocity to attempt to tackle French centre Maxime Mermoz and he went for a high hit, around the chest region but ended up knocking heads with the Frenchman. 

The incident means he will not feature in Argentina´s third and final match of the tour, against Ireland at Aviva Stadium this coming Saturday. The news coming out from the Argentine camp is positive however as Agulla is likely to have a speedy recovery and be avaliable for Bath in the coming weeks.
