5 Of The Greatest Pitch Invaders Of All Time

5 of the greatest pitch invaders of all time

This weekend the Springboks ran out 46-6 winners at Villa Park, but one of their supporters got over-excited as the game drew to a close.

You’d think a hat-trick from JP Pietersen contributed and a bonus-point victory, would be enough for their fans right? Wrong.

One particular Springboks fan let his common sense get the better of him and attempted to join a ruck and help his country recycle possession, before being dragged away by one of the players.

In what could be the worst pitch invasion of all time, the tubby intruder was led off by stewards to absolutely no ovation.

Even though pitch invading is bad and you should never do it, we thought we’d share the funniest.
