Samoa got the better of Spain to win their clash 26-10 at the London Sevens this past weekend but made the task a little more difficult than it should have been, with this horrendous blooper in the first half. It was such a schoolboy error, even the referee couldn’t keep a straight face.

The pair of Alamanda Motuga and Danny Tusitala were to blame, as Tusitala seemed to indicate that he wanted the ball but both players clearly lost their bearings, resulting in comedy gold.

After coming last in their pool, Samoa eventually lost 19-14 to Argentina in the Challenge Cup Quarter Final. They currently sit 10th overall as we head into the final leg of the series, in Paris.

Fiji went on to win the tournament, beating rivals South Africa in the final and scoring some thrilling tries along the way. Catch up on on the highlights and best tries here.

    Just voice Stuart Barnes "I'm sorry, but that is an absolutely disgusting thing to see on a rugby field, that should be a red card... Unless it's not a Samoan and an Englishman...then it's fine.. and the referee has made a bad call there.."

    In my best Joel Stransky accent: "It's all in the direction of the hands. Look at the hands. That's a tough call."

    He wasn't far wrong.. it pains me to see any of the Pacific island talent losing games..and deserves is quite a strong word, but this certainly helped them to squander the victory..

    They almost did it earlier in the same game too, the fella crossing the line then chucking the ball to a second bloke who wasn't quite ready for it for their first try. Because this one was right under the sticks, the chap in front of me was convinced they'd lose the game by six points and it'd serve them right!

    ".....but I thought, as long as the ball is passed backwards it doesn't matter if it travels forwards" @_@
