Don't mess with Freddie

It's one thing to stage a pitch invasion at a football match, the worst-case scenario involving being hauled to the ground by ponderous yellow-jacketed stewards and an inevitable fine.
But try the same at a rugby game and the potential for pain increases, especially when you do so right in front of a large player whose side has just conceded a try.
Exeter fan Chris Kellow from Cornwall decided his side's last-gasp score in their game against Gloucester was worth a foray to the middle but he reckoned without Freddie Burns who proceeded to unceremoniously dump him flat on his back.
Burns briefly seemed keen to continue the discussion before leaving Kellow to stewards who escorted him, slightly shakily, back to the stands.
To make things worse for Kellow, Gareth Steenson missed the conversion which would have given Exeter the win as they went down 13-12.
