Watch: Super Rugby Player Guilty Of The Most Heinous Dive To Buy A Penalty
By Conor O'Leary

Super Rugby is known for free-flowing attacking rugby, missed tackles, and oodles of entertainment. There's meant to be tries, tries, and more tries, and so far this season - whenever games involving the New Zealand sides are on - that's largely been true.

What isn't meant to happen in Super Rugby is diving. That's what any fan will tell you anyway. And yet it happened on Saturday morning when the Queensland Reds hosted the Auckland Blues.
