Rhys Webb's horror knee injury freakishly similar to Jean de Villiers

The probably loss of both Leigh Halfpenny and Rhys Webb's servicces hrough injury - even leaving aside their misfortune on a human level - is a bitter pill for Welsh fans to swallow on the eve of the World Cup. 

Webb's injury in particular made for grim viewing - but how eerily similar it was to Springbok captain Jean de Villiers knee injury a year earlier was quite remarkable. Not only was it in the same area of the pitch, but the manner in which a ruck collapsed onto his knee was bizarrely similiar. 

*PS Apologies for the stuff at the end of the first video. We didn't realise it was there.
