Friday Funnies - Yet another Ball in the Jersey Trick

Friday Funnies - Yet another Ball in the Jersey Trick

Once again, the good old ball in the jersey trick has failed to work. We've seen it tried a few times, and shown them all here on the site, but this time, it even resulted in the player at hand being penalised.

Dragons prop Hugh Gustafson somehow got himself tangled when making a run against the Scarlets last weekend. As he was tackled, his jersey got pulled over his head, trapping the ball in it.

He went to ground, didn't release, and got penalised for it by the ref. Pretty harsh considering the ball was actually stuck inside his jersey, but rules are rules, and despite protestation by Gustafson, possession was conceded.

To make things even more comical, he struggled to then get the ball out his jersey when trying to give it to the Scarlets player, and had to walk back to his team mates with his belly hanging out.

Check out our related links for similar incidents, and have a great weekend watching the Currie Cup final, the Air NZ Cup semis, the final Test of the Bledisloe Cup, as well as Guinness Premiership, Top 14, and Magners League action.

Remember to please take notes of incidents and send them in to us, so nothing is missed
