Remember, kids, look both ways before you cross the street. Especially when there is traffic. A cheerleader in the Free State learned this lesson the hard way at a Rugby match. The overzealous young lady walked into oncoming stallion traffic as they made their way onto the pitch - and got knocked to the floor.

Luckily, she was fi. Shehe gingerly made her way back up.

SuperSport commentator makes fun of supporters at Varsity Cup

In other hilarious rugby event stories, Briefly News reported on a commentator who pointed out a specific-looking group of guys at a match and roasted them live on tv. It's not that hard to pick out a few okes. They are typically dressed like frat boys trying to look cool. Cap backwards, shades threw over their eyes, some shorts and maybe an unbuttoned shirt to show some chest. Think Johnny Bravo, but with a South African accent.

"Blue shirt and cap with glasses is King Oke, the leader of the Okes."
