As anyone who plays or watches sport knows it usually pays not to celebrate before actually scoring – as one player reminded us at the weekend.

The embarrassing incident happened to Bath’s Sam Vesty, who incidentally had come on as a second-half replacement for former All Black Stephen Donald.

Vesty looked to be cruising it to a an easy bouns-point try against Wasps, that was until this happened…

Luckily Vesty’s idiocy didn’t cost Bath the game as they went on to win 17-12 and at least he might have received some words of comfort from Stephen Donald ‘Duck’ who’s been known to make a few embarrassing mistakes of his own in the past.
