Freddie Burns tackles the invader, leaving him stunned on the ground. He was then escorted off the pitch by match security.

The incident happened during the Aviva Premiership match between Gloucester and Exeter Chiefs, in the 82nd minute.

Chris Kellow, a Chiefs supporter, ran on the pitch and was quickly dealt with by Gloucester's fly-half.

The video has already been viewed over 10,000 times online and was accidentally captured by fellow Chiefs supporter Dan Walton.

"I filmed this clip as things were so tense on the try line with zero on the clock."

Watch the clip above.
