Pressure of 2021 finally gets to Mostert with truly bizarre video

Every Springboks player is entitled to spend their free time before their European tour however they wish, we’re not here to judge, but few expected Franco Mostert to get up to what he has.

With the help of a watermelon and some cling film, the lock has entered the world of viral TikTok content with the most peculiar, and strangely hypnotic, video.

There are simply no words to adequately describe what you are about to witness, but remember this is one of the best players on the planet:

Mostert will have to suspend his career moonlighting as a strange fruit dancer to rejoin the Springboks squad soon, as they prepare to take on Wales, Scotland and England in November.
