The Seattle player was forced to join in on his opponents try celebrations.
Major League Rugby is a league that is not unfamiliar with producing its own unique moments. One moment from the 2021 season that fans may remember was when the Utah Warriors mascot, drove a motorbike in front of the kicker, Mack Mason of the Austin Gilgronis, as he attempted to convert a try. That was possibly one of the wilder moments.
The Utah Warriors mascot has no chill 😳 @koathepanther @utwarriorsrugby @usmlr pic.twitter.com/Rw1YBZaMwE

The 2022 season is in full flow with the fixtures now passed week 10, more than halfway through the regular season. The Seattle Seawolves took on the New England Free Jacks in the week 10 clash between the sides. The hosts, New England, came away with a 24-22 win in the end.
After 16 minutes of play, Free Jack winger Paula Balekana got over for the first score of the game. Seattle Seawolves winger Lauina Futi, was unfortunately for him, dragged in by the Free Jacks and forced to join in on the celebrations for the try, scored against his team. In fairness to him, he played it off with a smile.
You can watch Major League Rugby live and on demand on The Rugby Network.
Absolutely loving this from Seattle Seawolves winger Lauina Futi and the New England Free Jacks team 😂
