The Top 5 Worst Celebrations in Rugby history

The Top 5 team at Rugby HQ are at it again, this time tracking down five of the Worst Ever Celebrations on a rugby field, no doubt prompted by the Waratahs' recent inability to produce an F1 podium moment when celebrating their Super Rugby victory in Sydney.

There's also a look at a player injuring himself when celebrating a try that didn't count, an awkward handshake on the big stage, and an interesting dance after a wonderful try (and injured hamstring). More of these moments and others are featured in the Related Posts below.

Can you think of any others that could have made the list?

I don't think I can make the joke I want to make about the Waratahs celebration, for fear of Mr Dump removing it immediately for coarseness and vulgarity. It really is a horrific image which I'm struggling to erase from my brain.

On safer ground, who on Earth celebrates a championship victory at this elite level of the game with Cider!?!? Get them some bloody bubbles you tight bar stewards!

'They failed to produce a golden shower of champagne' almost made it into the write-up actually.

Heineken sponsor/ed the whatever-it's-called-now Cup but they don't make the winners pour lager over each other.

Or...
VW sponsor Toulon but I don't remember them trying to drink their champagne out of a car.

Too right, the Ansbro headbutt should be #1.

Maybe because the incident came when Scotland were celebrating a win over Australia, the Rugby HQ team had tried to scrub that match from their memory.

Ps. Stroudos, you need to let us all in... I'm just seeing the Tahs unable to pop one off, what about you?

No, they're not precious about stuff like that, it's just one of the many awesome things about the show. They had the Scotland celebration in another top 5 recently. In fact that's probably more likely the reason for not including again.

As for the Waratahs - well it looked like the worst ever iteration of the specialist Japanese adult entertainment, (you know what I mean, first syllable making someone jump, 2nd/3rd syllables former Brazil footballer). But unfortunately in this case it looked like the actors had already performed once or twice already that day...

Anyway, *not* a pleasant image!

Why was Farrells disallowed?

I think the referee said the celebration was too crap and had to disallow the try to teach Farrell an important lesson.

No, but really, it was for a forward pass; I think the one from Goode to the winger.

I'm a Farrell hater, so naturally anything like this is going to tickle me - but that 'celebration' was some damn funny stuff!

I do feel a small amount of guilt for laughing, it's never nice to see any player get an injury and I wouldn't wish an injury on anyone, but seeing as it's already happened, I just have to chuckle!

Also a Farrell hater, guess I'm just meaner than you because I personally have absolutely no guilt at laughing at that one. In fact, that's a moment I'd take home and have sex with, I enjoyed it that much. Jesus, I can't stand that fella.

Gotta agree he's a petulant young fellow and his celebration was just brash posturing.

Before Cipriani did his half ass "Dougie" he pulled up injured too. You can't do a dance then hobble off the field.

Hugging and high fiving your mates in the tryzone is cool. Any pre-choreographed dance move should be an instant yellow card! Back in the way back day players would be stonefaced after scoring.

You know it's the way cipriani did it, not out of joy or even to share the moment with his team, it's like he was doing it all for himself, glad he's changed

I don't think I've seen that Farrell clip before. It's not nice to see him (or anyone) pull up with an injury, kind of sours it a bit. The extreme reaction and hoofing the ball into row Z before being disallowed is priceless though... especially as it was a simple overlap and 2 on 1.
