Nigel Owens Has Made Good On His Promise Following Ballboy Yellow Card

The gift that just keeps on giving.

Nigel Owens was at his absolute brilliant best again last night as Leinster took on the Scarlets at the RDS.

The legendary referee was the man in the middle as the Irish province managed to secure a huge bonus-point win over the Welsh region, with the highlight of the match involving none other than former World Rugby Referee of the Year himself.

During a break in play late in the second half, one of the ballboys accidentally hit Owens with the ball. The official responded like only he can by brilliantly yellow carding the ballboy.

Owens then came out in typical fashion and offered the ballboy his match jersey from the game.

He has since posted an update to let us know that he has indeed made contact with the young lad and will get the jersey posted ASAP. What a legend.
