Harlequins produced a five try thrashing of a poor Bristol side this past weekend in the Guinness Premiership. The match was highlighted by the superb commanding performance of speedy scrum half Danny Care, the Sevens star who is rapidly developing into a player of real quality.
It was his replacement though, Andy Gomersall, that made the break that led to this funny incident with five minutes left in the match.
Argentine center Gonzalo Tiesi was put into space from the Gomersall switch pass, then stepped the cover defence and ran in for an excellent try from a set piece.
Bristol wing Tom Arscott tried in vain to stop him with a tackle over the line as he scored, but to no avail. Tiesi jumped up to celebrate, and with Arscott taking his time getting up, the Harlequins teamates come in to congratulate Tiesi.
The more Arscott tried to get away, the more Quins players surrounded him, resulting in Arscott being part of this big group hug.
A short clip, but one we found hilarious as the potential for this happening is always there.
Harlequins won 31-13 in the end.
