The most heartwarming Rugby Proposals of All-Time

1. Rugby World Cup 2015


It looked as though the Romanian rugby team were destined to endure a forgettable afternoon after they were swept aside by Ireland, however replacement scrum half Florin Surugiu helped to turn the mood around.

The 30-year-old stepped out from the squad, met his girlfriend, got down on one knee and popped the question in front of his teammates.

Despite losing 44-10 in their pool game, Romania were given a standing ovation by the crowd at Wembley.

This type of pitch invasion is good for all involved, and here are the greatest sports proposals of all time.

Rio Olympics 2016


A Brazilian women’s rugby sevens player has became the first athlete to receive a marriage proposal at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.

Isadora Cerullo, 25, was a member of the Brazil squad that narrowly missed out on reaching the knockout rounds.

After the medal ceremony following the first women’s rugby sevens final in Olympic history on Monday had ended, Marjorie Enya, Cerullo’s girlfriend and a manager at Deodoro Stadium, asked her to marry her.

Feigning an injury

For a minute, it just looked like David Jones had fallen, injured on the rugby field. He collided with two other players and hit the ground.

It was all a ruse to get his girlfriend Terri Burns, an athletic therapist working the game, to run out and check on him. When she did, he pulled out a ring and proposed marriage.

Some of the best sport proposals! 

And, then there is the rejection. This is just awkward.
