Video - Red-faced rugby player celebrates try that never was - after touching down on the WRONG line

Have your say

Amateur rugby player Tom McLean, who plays for Brixham in Devon has become an Internet star after his video of his schoolboy error was watched by more than half a million people.

McLean, who plays in the centre for the National Three South West league team, was caught on camera ‘celebrating’ after scoring a try 10 minutes from time in the Devon derby with Barnstaple at Pottington Road. But there was just one problem with the score - the line McLean dived over was not the try line but the five-metre line before it. The moment was caught on camera by Barry Thomas, a coach for Brixham.
