Friday Funnies - Dylan Des Fountain butchers a great try

Friday Funnies - Dylan Des Fountain butchers a great try


Last weekend at Newlands the Stormers hosted the Force in a controversial Super 14 match that saw the lead change hands a number of times, but in the end resulted in a 25-24 victory for the home side.

The Forces loss meant that they missed out on a semi final position, and they felt that was mainly due to poor refereeing after Dylan Des Fountain allegedly held back Force center Ryan Cross as the Stormers went in for a try ten minutes from time.

Force coach John Mitchell slammed referee Marius Jonker after the incident, saying that he shouldnt referee another Super 14 game again, or should be disciplined in some manner.

That incident aside, it was the same man involved that committed a horrendous error that will go down as one of the most embarrassing moments to occur for the team since Robbie Flecks classic error back in 2001.

The Stormers had put together a stunning sequence of rugby that swept the length of the field before it came back across to the right and captain Luke Watson measured his scoring pass perfectly.

Center Des Fountain was on the end of one of the Stormers best tries of the season, with the only thing required being to canter over the tryline and dot down the ball. Instead, with a massive smile on his face, he dropped it, much to the amusement of the Force backline players.
