Friday Funnies - Dylan Des Fountain butchers a great try

Last weekend at Newlands the Stormers hosted the Force in a controversial Super 14 match that saw the lead change hands a number of times, but in the end resulted in a 25-24 victory for the home side.

The Force’s loss meant that they missed out on a semi final position, and they felt that was mainly due to poor refereeing after Dylan Des Fountain allegedly held back Force center Ryan Cross as the Stormers went in for a try ten minutes from time.

Force coach John Mitchell slammed referee Marius Jonker after the incident, saying that he shouldn’t referee another Super 14 game again, or should be disciplined in some manner.

That incident aside, it was the same man involved that committed a horrendous error that will go down as one of the most embarrassing moments to occur for the team since Robbie Fleck’s classic error back in 2001.

The Stormers had put together a stunning sequence of rugby that swept the length of the field before it came back across to the right and captain Luke Watson measured his scoring pass perfectly.

Center Des Fountain was on the end of one of the Stormers’ best tries of the season, with the only thing required being to canter over the tryline and dot down the ball. Instead, with a massive smile on his face, he dropped it, much to the amusement of the Force backline players.

  • Funny that John Mitchell can make a sweeping claim that someone has no business near a top-level rugby pitch "ever again"...

  • He did it with purpose, that's obvious. the way he let the ball fall looks very intentional--------------> corrupted

  • typical flashy back celebrating before he's even scored the try

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 18, 2009 8:41 pm  

  • That is bizarre. It looked to me like he deliberately separated his hands, which surely can't be the case.

  • point shaving for the bookies is definately a possibiblity. And I second the call for more Trysavers & Rib breakers.

    And I would love to hear what the opposing 11 had to say to him.

    The "mad wool grabber"

  • it wasn't deliberate, just a player not concentrating

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 20, 2009 9:31 am  

  • That is probably the worst finish to a great passage of play EVER!
