Friday Funnies - Ma'a Nonu falls off his chair

Friday Funnies - Ma'a Nonu falls off his chair

From last week's game between the Hurricanes and the Lions in Wellington, this Friday Funny has been requested numerous times in the last few days, so we thought we'd better show it as despite it being short, it's well worth a laugh.

Ma'a Nonu has been in the spotlight a fair bit this season, mainly for his ever improving form and for getting on the scoresheet with some excellent tries.

But the All Black center provided us with this great moment while sitting on the bench with an injury, next to good mate Piri Weepu.

Leaning back to catch the ball, Nonu loses his balance and ends up on the floor, which cracks up Weepu, who you can hear just can't stop laughing, or shreaking, at his buddies misfortune, all caught on camera.

Nonu looks angry, but then sees the funny side of it. Mexted's third half comment is a classic too.

While Ma'a was sitting on the bench he leaned back to catch the ball and fell off his chair (also looked like his teammate Piri Weepu smacked his injured toe as he fell down)!.Meanwhile notice Piri Weepu (to the left of Nonu)is laughing before Nonu hits the ground.Absolutely classic.
