Bizarre scenes as Harry Potter performs disappearing act against Bordeaux

Leicester Tigers winger Harry Potter lived up to his name on Saturday after disappearing off the side of the pitch against Bordeaux in the Champions Cup.

The 23-year-old was pushed into touch by his opposite man Ben Lam and his momentum forced him to hop over the advertising boards at the side of the pitch.

However what Potter didn’t see was the huge concrete drop on the other side which he fell straight into, disappearing from sight.

Players and fans looked concerned as they gathered on the sideline, but fortunately the dynamic winger was left unscathed and returned to the action immediately.

Potter joined Leicester in 2020 from Melbourne Rebels and has played a significant role in their impressive early season form in the Premiership.

Tigers narrowly won the game 13-16 at Stade Chaban-Delmas to make it 13 wins on the bounce this season and full match highlights against the French giants are available below:

“I’m proud of these players,” said Leicester Tigers head coach Steve Borthwick. “When Bordeaux kicked the ball into the corner at the end, I thought, ‘Regardless of what the outcome is, I’m proud of the players’. They came here to Bordeaux and had a real go.

“They had the courage to play a little bit different and the courage to have a go. Bordeaux are a brilliant team, with threats all around the park. We wanted to challenge them in a different way so that they would have to think a little bit differently.

“If you start thinking too much about what happened in the past you can get stuck there and maybe that’s what Leicester Tigers did as a club. We’ll take lessons from this, enjoy this, and then we’ve got a Sunday game coming up against Connacht at Welford Road.”
