Robbie Fruean threatened with Ben Smith's spear

Robbie Fruean threatened with Ben Smith's spear

On Friday last week in the Plays of the Week segment you may have noticed a funny ending to the clip, with a quite hilarious bit of theatre from wing Ben Smith. Here's the full incident.

Big Robbie Fruean has been featured on here a few times already, and the more we see him play, the more we realise what a beast he is. He's also incredibly unlucky to be one of those talented individuals who has suffered from the massive amounts of top quality backs in New Zealand.

A few months back it looked as though Fruean and Sonny Bill Williams were destined to become the All Blacks' new center pairing, featuring strongly at the World Cup. It hasn't gone that way, and with Conrad Smith and Ma'a Nonu in the form of their lives, even the dangerous Williams is playing a supporting role off the bench. Fruean is yet to be selected at all.

That said, he's a young guy and still has a huge amount of potential, which he'll no doubt reach in coming years as he gets even stronger, more powerful, and more aware on both defence and with ball in hand. As it is, he's a bit of a freak physically.

Bay of Plenty's Ben Smith was obviously all too aware of that when he made the poorly judged decision to throw the ball at, then stand up to, Fruean in their recent ITM Cup match.

The massive Canterbury center had him pushed over on his back before he could say Whakatane, to which Smith replied as any little winger should do against a bigger man. He grabbed the nearest weapon that would make it a fair fight, and used it as a spear.

I'm also guilty of thinking they said tyre haha. I guess it's the strong Kiwi accent, he can't even pronounced 'Smuth' right

Yeah it's all good fun.

Apart from the adrenelin pumping and you've just been pushed over like an idiot.... and then you realise you've just picked up a corner flag and pointed at your smug assailant. Oooops...it was all just a joke ha ha err ha...ahem.
