Why Rugby Players Don't Dive

Date: April 30, 2014

The sight of soccer players theatrically falling to the floor after minor contact is all too familiar, but it's not often a rugby player hits the deck to try and con the referee.

Maybe this video gives us a good reason why.

Playing for Samoan side Vailele against Vaiala, the forward in question receives a hand to the chest... and crumbles to the floor holding his face.

The response is not quite as desired though with the whole stadium erupting in howls of laughter before his fellow players and even the referee have a chuckle.

For a big tough rugby player, it's just about as embarrassing as it gets.
