VIDEO: Burglar picked wrong victim when he broke into home of rugby league prop forward

A BURGLAR picked on the wrong victim when he broke into the home of a burly rugby prop forward.
Bradford Bulls star Jon Magrin used his professional skills to rugby tackle the habitual criminal he caught fleeing his home.
‘Three strikes’ burglar John Calvert was left with a black eye when he was confronted by Mr Magrin as he and an accomplice tried to escape with the player’s cash and PlayStation console.
Jailing Calvert, 23, for three years at Bradford Crown Court yesterday, Judge Jonathan Rose said it was the defendant’s misfortune that his victim was a professional rugby league player, and not a woman who he had used violence against in a previous offence.


Prosecutor Dave MacKay told the court that Calvert and two accomplices broke into an apartment in Bradford city centre, which belonged to the 22-year-old player.
One kept watch outside while the other two, including Calvert, searched the flat. Calvert took £500 cash while the other man picked up the PlayStation.
Mr MacKay said Mr Magrin arrived home and saw Calvert coming out of his door.
He punched the defendant in the face, knocking him to the ground, and there was a violent struggle.
