- Ben Grubb taken to hospital and Championship tie called off
- Fixture at Trailfinders Sports Club ends in 62nd minute
The Championship rugby union match between Ealing Trailfinders and Cornish Pirates was abandoned on Saturday after Ben Grubb, the Pirates back‑rower, was knocked unconscious by a high tackle and later taken to hospital.
A spectator said Grubb was seen “convulsing on the ground” after what the Pirates called a “high shot” by the Ealing prop Kyle Whyte at the Trailfinders Sports Club in west London.
