Kenyan Collins Injera celebrates milestone try by signing ball and camera

Kenyan Collins Injera celebrates milestone try by signing ball and camera

Collins Injera’s 200th try celebration at the London 7s has gone viral, causing a bit of a stir around the globe for as much good as bad. While it was a classic celebration, with the marker stored in his sock until being needed, there were concerns about the damage to the camera.

While many media sites have claimed that the damage caused to the camera lense could be upwards of £60,000 ($93,000), and that the Kenyan star would be made to pay, it appears to be purely speculation and based on nothing more than an assumption.

We reached out to World Rugby (formerly the IRB), and were told that there has been no confirmation of this story, and in fact the same camera shot was used later in the day, so it appears as though the fuss that has since been made is unfounded, and no cameras were harmed in the making of this celebration.

Of course if anyone has any concrete evidence, or a new story breaks about Injera being banned and fined, we – and the World Rugby source – stand to be corrected.

That said, congratulations on Injera on his brilliant achievement, and to the USA for winning the tournament, and most of all Fiji, for winning the overall series.

    all that celebration fuss takes away the attention from an, actually, brilliant try. it looks so simple but he creates that gap himself. and he leaves two guys flat on their face grasping for his ankles.

    Just to add about the camera as others have said, normally they have filters over the lens anyway.. If you think the amount of weather these things are subjected too, I'm pretty sure they do all they can to keep the actual lens protected.
