FRIDAY FUNNIES: Samoan wing does his best celebratory act despite clear blooper

FRIDAY FUNNIES: Samoan wing does his best celebratory act despite clear blooper

Samoa’s end of year tour of Europe ended with a 28-10 win over Spain in Madrid, following unexpected losses to the USA and Georgia. While they won in the final match, this moment perhaps sums up their campaign at the moment. 

Samoa qualified for Rugby World Cup 2019 after consecutive playoff wins over Germany in July of this year. They join Pool A’s Ireland, Scotland, Russia and hosts Japan.

Ed Fidow scored a hat-trick against Germany but when facing Spain recently, he started the match with a bit of a shocker. It would have been a quality try after the chip and chase but after then beating another defender when already over the try line, he didn’t get the ball down properly.

Fidow tried his best to convince the officials that it was legit, but it was yet another example of a player not getting the ball down with two hands, and ended up red-faced.

Regardless, Samoa went on to win 28-10 and will hope for more convincing performances come RWC 2019.

    Haha, good one! The one thing more embarrassing than embarrassing yourself is trying to cover up your embarrassment...

    I think it's nice that RD shows stuff that those of us who coach Under 10s can relate to.
