Watch: Pink budgie smuggler and a vicious hit
South Africa’s Cabous Eloff got hearts racing in Australia compliments of a wardrobe malfunction while Samoa’s Melani Nanai’s return to the playing field lasted less than 20 minutes.
Eloff, in his debut season at the Melbourne Rebels, had his pants ripped off in front of the Suncorp Stadium crowd. Judging by his reaction, he was clearly unaware of the situation for a few moments after getting back in defence and to his credit, he took it all in his stride.
The other side of the game took centre stage in the Premiership when Worcester Warriors’ Nanai was shown a straight red card in the 18th minute of their match against Gloucester. The Samoan put in a vicious tackle on Gloucester’s Johnny May, who had to be taken off the field and never returned after failing his head injury assessment.
