The Breakdown pundits react to THAT Ardie Savea gaffe last weekend

The newest episode of ‘The Breakdown’ has just aired and with it comes this brilliant reaction to last weekend’s Super Rugby action.

This week’s show covered a range of different topics in an action-packed week of rugby.

Many fans were eager to see what the pundits had to say after this cringe-worthy interview on Sunday featuring the program’s host Jeff Wilson.

The Breakdown presenter was all over social media on the weekend after two awkward mix-ups with Super Rugby stars in the weekend’s post-match interviews.

When Ardie Savea went to offer the former All Black a high five at the end of the interview – Wilson turned away not noticing the gesture – leading to a hilarious moment of bemusement from the Hurricanes flanker.

To make things even more awkward we see that this wasn’t the first time this happened on the weekend for the host.

The 15th player on the list of extensions is Alfie Barbeary, who was recently promoted to the first-team squad from the academy. With the club looking to make permanent the temporary salary cut that came in when the coronavirus pandemic first broke out, contract extensions have become a ploy across the league to help keep players happy.
