Watch: Showboating Willie Le Roux Butchers Certain Try For Wasps At The Aviva

If you felt a sharp gust of wind blow across Dublin in the last few minutes and wondering what it was, we are here to put your mind at ease. It was the collective breaths of 50,000-odd people sighing in relief at the Aviva at the butchering of a certain Willie Le Roux try against Leinster.

Leading 8-0 and owning the ball, Leinster were caught cold by a sensational Kurtley Beale break. Beale then offloaded to Le Roux, who galloped clear to touch down to bring Wasps back into the game...or so they thought.

A review by the TMO showed that Le Roux had lost control of the ball and knocked on as he dived for the line, in a farcical example of premature celebration. It was an ignoble end to a stunning Wasps move, for which Le Roux has generated plenty of 'Willie Le Rue' headlines in tomorrow's papers.

Lawrence Dallaligo called the entire incident "inexcusable" after saying that there was nothing wrong with the try on commentary with BT Sport, and it crudely interrupted Brian O'Driscoll's exulting in the Kurtley Beale break. Instead, BOD let out a hearty laugh at Dallaligo.


While it was an awful error, we must never lose sight of the fact that the whole episode is utterly hilarious.

Enjoy it below.

Wille Le Roux Try

Oh dear.


Leinster have since made hay: some expert jinking by Joey Carberry fed the ball to Jack Conan, who touched down to give Leinster a relatively commanding 16-3 lead after 35 minutes. Robbie Henshaw then touched down on the stroke of half-time, and lead 22-3 at half time. It's a fair reflection of Leinster's dominance, but boy did they get away with one over that Wille Le Roux try error.
