VIDEO: Big Foot is loose in the MLR

WATCH as the Pretoria-born loose forward Riekert Hattingh goes on the rampage for his Major League Rugby club the Seattle Seawolves.


The Seattle Seawolves travelled to Southern California to face a long-time MLR rival, the San Diego Legion, at their home pitch.

Both sides entered Week Three undefeated and a match full of back-and-forth scoring saw the visitors pull ahead in the second half and hold strong in a close win, 31-28.

The two-time MLR champions are well in the hunt for a third title, but it was the barnstorming charge of the American international Riekert Hattingh – son of former Springbok lock Drikus Hattingh – that set the tongues wagging.

His charge for a solo try had the commentators waxing lyrical.

Chants like “Riekert Hattingh runs people over for fun” and “Big Foot is loose on the outside” were heard on the airways.
