When a Sevens rugby player ran 80m to score a fantastic try at a tournament in Poland recently, it looked as though we’d be hailing her for her excellent acceleration, balance and eye for the tryline. Instead, Kasia Stasiecka took all the plaudits, as she came out of nowhere to ruin the party.
A few weeks back we saw another ridiculous try-scoring blooper, also from Poland strangely enough. On that occasion the would-be tryscorer hadn’t run as far, but messed up just as badly.
So, don’t be so casual when scoring tries, as we’ve seen time and again that there is a very high chance that someone on the field is just waiting to pounce and make you look a bit silly.
And when that happens, you can be sure there will be a camera around, and it’ll end up on Rugbydump so fans around the globe can enjoy your misfortune!
