Friday Funnies - What the hell is going on?!

Friday Funnies - What the hell is going on?!

In news of the bizarre from 2005, this was one of the strangest tries you'll see for a long long time, and probably the easiest too for flanker Brent Wilson.

The two NPC sides, Otago and North Harbour, both hear a 'Phantom Whistle' that could only have been someone in the crowd having a bit of fun. Everyone stops, except for Wilson who casually strolls over the line, also looking a bit confused.

You can even see the number eight of Harbour turning around in disgust after making the pass, thinking the ref had called it forward or something.

All in all, confusion reigned, and 'What the hell is going on' is probably still a question that the players involved will be asking themselves.

Haven't seen it, but I get what it's like. Has happened for me and my team in different youth tournaments, with several matches being played close to each other. Never fun when it happens.

Guys, we'll have everything back up as soon as we can. Give us a day or two and all the broken links will be sorted, including this video. I'll post an announcement when we've sorted them out. We'll keep posting new clips though. Where there's a will there's a way.

Would have been funny if he had just stopped over the try line and looked around......Ref: "Well someone tackle him..."

Yeah theres definatly some sort of faint whistle around 9-10 seconds. Ye wouldn't think they'd hear somthing like that in the middle of a match though
