Fifteen year olds doing something like that is freakish. It hardly exemplifies rugby, which I played for fifteen years and have officiated for longer than that. Part of the challenge of playing contact sports is to balance the considerable emotional commitment required with respect for one's opponents and the traditions of the game. I expect the young perpetrator was driven by something well outside the game.
