We don’t often feature non-professional rugby on the homepage, but when we do, it’s usually quite special. This dummy from Mike Baska of Arkansas State University is off the charts in terms of audaciousness, and of course, execution.
The footage has gone viral in a big way, with the original youtube video (below) as well as other rips of it being shared on social media this week, racking up thousands of views.
Scrumhalf Baska, playing against the University of Arkansas, dummied Joshua Nearman who switched inside nicely, then found him again before getting taken out by the covering defence.
What was as impressive as the little show of the ball then loop-de-loop dummy was that Baska kept his head to find Nearman with the inside ball, so the try was scored.
As we’ve been saying for years, get your matches filmed, upload the clips and get sharing with us. Moments like this aren’t seen all too often so to have it captured on camera, priceless.
