WATCH: A brilliant act of sportsmanship from Henley Hawks

The Hawks could have snatched the win right at the death when they were awarded a penalty after Barnes’ Jasper Cameron was pinged for not rolling away from the tackle.
However, the flanker had actually been knocked unconscious after making the tackle and was unable to move away so rather than Henley opting for the three points, they kicked the ball out of play as the sides shared the spoils.
👏 @HenleyHawks are a class act after declining the chance to win after a @Barnes_Rugby player suffered an injury.
