Friday Funnies - Odwa Ndungane butchers it over the line

Friday Funnies - Odwa Ndungane butchers it over the line

I'm not sure if this is more funny or sad. A bit of both probably. Sharks vs Crusaders in Durban, Super 14 last year. The score is tied at 13-13 all, with the Sharks needing to win at home to increase their chances of progressing further in the tournament.

A lovely move between Ryan Kankowski & Jaques Botes creates the opening as Botes goes through, doing all the hard work and popping the ball perfectly for Sharks wing Odwa Ndungane, the twin brother of Springbok Akona, to catch the ball and fall over the line. Simple? Apparently not.

Luckily for Odwa he went on to redeem himself by scoring a length of the field try that set up one of the most amazing finishes to a game you'll ever see.

If that hadn't happened, this blunder would have gone down as the moment that cost the Sharks the match, and Odwa Ndungane wouldn't have been the most popular guy in Durban that night.
