After Greig Laidlaw's penalty saw Scotland beat Australia away for the first time for 30 years, the players come charging into celebrate and flanker Alasdair Strokosch jumps into the huddle and headbutts Joe Ansbro and then hits Nick de Luca with an arm on the way down. Both Strokosch and Ansbro end up with cut heads.

Talk about a flying Scotsman.

It's not uncommon for players to knock heads in rugby, although it usually happens during the game, not when you're celebrating an historic win.

The Scots first win in Australia for 30 years was certainly cause for celebration, although flanker Alasdair Strokosch and centre Joe Ansbro probably imagined things going a bit differently.

Greg Laidlaw's penalty after the siren secured a 9-6 win for Scotland and as players converged to celebrate, Strokosch and Ansbro came running in from opposite sides of the field, jumped up to join the huddle and clashed spectacularly in the middle.

With blood streaming down their faces, the two were taken off to be bandaged up on the sidelines, but a little head knock was not enough to wipe the winning grins off their faces.
