Leicester's Tom Youngs and Northampton's Salesi Ma'afu were involved in a physical confrontation during the Aviva Premiership playoff semifinal that ended with Youngs being decked by a hard punch.

Ma'afu was ejected following the unfortunate incident, but his team still managed to win down a man for the final 25 minutes of the match. 

Rather than hold a grudge, Youngs let bygones by bygones, and the pair of rugby players exchanged pleasantries on Twitter:
