Five minutes of Faf de Klerk on-pitch shenanigans is pure gold to watch

Springboks superstar Faf de Klerk is widely regarded as one of the best scrum halves in world rugby for his all-round skill set and tenacity in defence.

The 29-year-old played a key role in South Africa’s 2019 World Cup triumph and more recently their series win over the British & Irish Lions, which leaves the playmaker with 32 international caps to his name.

Since joining Sale Sharks in the English Premiership his fame has hit new heights but as well as his incredible ability and golden locks, de Klerk has a reputation for being mischievous on the pitch.

On a regular basis he tries his luck at winding up the opposition which more often than not results in some friction between players, which is humorous to watch as the South African stands at just 5ft 7″.

One of his most famous altercations came against Wales second row Jake Ball during the last World Cup when the pair virtually rubbed noses in a hilarious face off in Japan.

However as well as comic moments, de Klerk has also fallen foul of some textbook brain fades over the years for both club and country and resulted in the little general watching from the sin bin on numerous occasions.

In last week’s Rugby Championship Test against Australia he was shown a yellow card for one of the most blatant examples of playing the opposition scrum half when he knocked the ball out of Wallabies playmaker Nic White in Brisbane.

But to summarise the feisty edge to de Klerk’s game YouTuber Andrew Forde has put together a brilliant five-minute montage which begins with the South African’s iconic face-off with Ball two years ago.

The montage also features a cheeky high shot on Conor Murray during the Lions tour this Summer as well as some other reckless challenges at both club and international level.
