With Raiders trailing 24-7 at Ivor Preece Field, Broadstreet physio Jamie Clifford came on to the field to treat a home player but accidentally took out opposition winger McIlwaine.

Referee Daniel Woods awarded Worthing a scrum after the bizarre collision.

Broadstreet director of rugby Paul Hurst told the Coventry Telegraph: "James played for us a young lad and has come back to us as a physio and is a big help for us.

"It was one of those things that was funny at the time, he just judged it wrong."
