Top 14 winger takes dramatic fall after breakdown contact

Top 14 winger takes dramatic fall after breakdown contact

Montpellier winger Timoci Nagusa appeared to simulate an injury in the build up to Lyon’s first try in Saturday’s Top 14 play-off quarter-finals.

Nagusa was competing for the ball at a breakdown when Lyon full back Delon Armitage cleared him out of the ruck.

The Fijian fell to the floor and remained motionless until after centre Pierre-Louis Barassi scored for Lyon.

Lyon went on to win the game 21-16 at Matmut Stadium de Gerland meaning they will face Clermont Auvergne in the semi-finals on Sunday 9 June.

Watch the build up to Barassi’s try below and see what you make of Nagusa’s reaction:

    This can't go on. World Rugby seriously needs to do something about people bringing sniper rifles to the stadium.

    If you dive, you should get whatever sanction you are trying to trick the referee into awarding. If this is a dive then it is in an attempt to get the attacker clearing out a red. So give him a red card.

      something similar in Stade v La Rochelle game where Stade winger (Nayacalevu I think) was carried in to touch and appeared to be trying his hardest to get his head to ground in the hope of winning a red card. After a moment of feigned injury he got up and made a miraculous recovery.
