Prop banned 99 years for kick to head

An Argentine prop has been hit with a 99-year ban from his own club after kicking an opponent in the head during a URBA club match in Burazco over the weekend.

Pucará Club prop Cipriano Martínez was caught on camera kicking San Aldano second rower Juan Masi at the base of a maul, Planet Rugby reports.

Martínez was red-carded following the incident while Masi was not seriously hurt, according to reports.

Pucará were quick to hand down the life ban on the prop.
