A rugby league player woke up in hospital after being knocked unconscious by a single punch on a night out, a court heard.
Callum Phillips, a Workington Town hooker who has previously represented Scotland, needed stitches, X-rays and scans after he was struck in the centre of Workington.
Conor Paul Irving, 22, has pleaded not guilty to an allegation that he assaulted Mr Phillips, causing him actual bodily harm.
Irving has gone on trial at Carlisle Crown Court.
Mr Phillips gave evidence to a jury yesterday about the build-up to an incident which occurred at around 3am on March 20.
