Argentinian flanker Marcos Kremer was shown a yellow card in a recent Rugby Championship clash with the Wallabies for using his leg to trip over Australia full back Reece Hodge.
Tripping is up there with one of the most cynical types of foul in the game and considered to be one of the most blatant types of cheating at every level of the sport.
British & Irish Lions winger Duhan Van der Merwe was also found guilty during the second Test match against the Springboks earlier this summer and received a yellow card for his trip on Cheslin Kolbe.
Although it’s a rare infringement, a brilliant montage has been pieced together which highlights the very worst examples of players being tripped combined with some instances of clever footballing skills.
Some clips, such as Maro Itoje’s brilliant block against Leicester fly half Owen Williams, are completely legal however many are nasty challenges which deserve significant punishment.
Other pieces of footage show accidental trips, where a player has either misjudged the wet conditions or mistimed a tackle, but the majority are simply deliberate acts of cheating.
