The first and last ‘wedgie’ you will ever see in a televised rugby match
Todays Super Rugby AU contest between the Waratahs and the Reds was a fiery affair between the two rivals which provided the first known instance of a ‘wedgie’ in a televised rugby match.
This truly has to be seen to be believed.
The match between the rivals was a rather one-sided affair in which the home side put a record score on the Reds.
Early on in the second half, it all kicks off after Michael Hooper takes a cheap shot on the deck.
Forearm to the cheek, nothing out of the ordinary. All the players pile in, lots of handbags and ‘how’s ya father’.
Again, nothing out of the ordinary. Until the camera picks up this absolute monster wedgie from the Waratahs number eight. Still can’t believe this actually happened!

Had this done to me at school on countless occasions. Watching this brings it all back… pic.twitter.com/zTXvffnC26

It’s a good thing that the Reds man saw the funny side. Pretty sure he could have got in a spot of bother for this if he hadn’t have!
