First year I played, raking was still legal. In the B division state final

Lynchburg v James Madison, I was playing flyhalf. I got caught by their forwards and went down seated, facing my team as I shielded the ball in a ruck. The other flyhalf put his boot on the back of my head and raked me as I sat in the pile up.

I got up out of the pile up and hit him in the face with my fist. Immediately the whistle blew. I figured I was gone. The ref came running up -- I saw what he did, but you can't do that; he yelled. Free kick to James Madison he said & pointed for play to resume.

That was it. That is rugby.
