Francois Hougaard’s Brain-Explosion Against Wales [Video]

The Springbok scrumhalf made a bizarre decision when awarded a penalty against Wales that left South African fans scratching their heads…

The 12-6 loss by the Springboks at the hands of Wales was hard enough to deal with, but some unnecessary individual decisions made it even more traumatic to watch.

Unfortunately, Francois Hougaard was one of the many who made some less-than-desired calls in the match.

After South Africa are awarded a penalty at a ruck, Hougaard decides to take a quick tap then boots the ball directly into touch on the full, as opposed to kicking for touch from the penalty and having a lineout. This handed over possession and gave Wales a lineout from where the ball was taken, which was arguably one of the strangest decisions all year.
