Wasps South African star Willie le Roux won't want to watch this again.

The Aviva Premiership leaders were trailing 8-0 after Isa Nacewa's early try and under the cosh with Johnny Sexton and Joey Carbery dictating the game.

Dai Young's side needed a try and they thought it had arrived when Kurtley Beale made a sumptuous break and released Willie le Roux.

Under no pressure whatsoever, the Springbok decided to do a Chris Ashton-style dive to score and fumbled the ball before managing to put downward pressure on the ball.

Very embarrassing.
