Scottish rugby star dressed as Batman punches rival player in Barbeque Kings

An assault trial court has heard how a Scotland international rugby player was dressed as the famous caped crusader Batman when he apparently attacked an amateur player in Glasgow.

A Scotland rugby star in a Batman suit punched a fellow player to the floor in a popular kebab shop known as Barbeque Kings, a jury heard. Glasgow Warriors Ryan Wilson lashed out in front of onlookers dressed as a minion from Despicable Me and a giant red crayon, it was stated. Flank forward Wilson, 25, who has nine caps, was on a Halloween fancy dress night out with other players when a scuffle erupted in Barbecue Kings in Glasgow at 2 AM.

The minion, Glasgow Hawks player Fraser Hastie, 20, said he heard a “ruckus” and a “thump” and saw a man called Gavin Quinn on the floor with Wilson looking down at him. Asked about Wilson’s costume, Hastie replied: “I think he was dressed as Batman.” Hastie said he saw “grabbing and pushing” between Quinn and Wilson before another Hawks player, Ally Maclay, came into the shop and embraced Quinn.

He said Maclay walked up to Wilson and said: “Leave it, Batman.” Asked how Wilson responded, Hastie said: “He took exception and threw a punch in Ally’s direction which hit him in the face. Ally staggered back and fell over.” Hastie said Maclay, who had “definitely not” been looking for a fight, was left with a badly swollen eye and blood on his face.

The jury saw CCTV of part of the brawl and the film highlighted a man dressed as a large red crayon. Asked where he was on the film, Hastie answered: “I think I’m behind the crayon.”

But Wilson refused assaulting Maclay while acting with two team-mates from his club side Glasgow Warriors, Scotland prop Ryan Grant, 29, and Rory Hughes, 21. They all declined hitting Maclay in the face, knocking him to the ground and repeatedly punching and kicking him on the face and body due to which he suffered terrible injuries. Wilson and Hughes also refuted attacking Quinn. The trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court continues.
