Rugby is a brutal sport as it is.

These guys beat the crap out of each other all game long. They don't wear pads. They take full contact to a whole new level.

During the English Super League final on Saturday, Wigan's Ben Flower just blatantly kicked the crap out of his St. Helens opponent, Lance Hohaia, in a brutal attack.

And if it's being described that way in the rugby world, then you know it's really a big deal.

Check out two different views of the ass-kicking Flower doled out below.
