Midweek Madness - Player falls to floor after worst fight ever

Midweek Madness - Player falls to floor after worst fight ever

This hilarious incident happened at the 3rd Annual TMO Marist American Samoa 7’s in American Samoa, between villages Vaiala and Vailele. As you can see, tensions sparked a quick exchange between two players, with neither one landing a clean shot.

That didn’t stop Simaika Mikaele, as he fell to the floor dramatically then rolled around to get the opposition player in trouble. Sadly for him referee James Bolabiu was right on hand, and thankfully took the whole incident with a pinch of salt, laughing it off along with the rest of the players.

We don’t know at what point Mikaele realised he looked ridiculous so played it up, but either way it shows just how crazy it is when players feign injury or dive to the floor when they clearly haven’t actually been injured, and there has been no contact made.

Mikaele used to play Sevens for Samoa, and can actually be seen making a massive hit at the Hong Kong Sevens against New Zealand about four years ago in this archived clip.

He won’t be too proud of what happened here though, unless it was all a joke from the start. The match looked to be played in good spirits anyway, so maybe he’ll get away with it.

UPDATE: As stated by some of the comments below, and a few messages we’ve received, this was actually the Cup Semi Final in American Samoa, at the 3rd Annual TMO Marist American Samoa 7’s.

Both teams fielded current or former Samoa players, but the match was played in good spirits and the altercation was light hearted.

Oneone Faafou is the name of the other player involved here (also a Samoan Sevens player), and according to all sources, Simaika Mikaele was actually joking the whole time, and the crowd loved it. Also, credit and thanks to samoanews.com who uploaded the video.
