Romania didn't get the win against Ireland at Wembley today but for one of their players in particular, the day will live long in the memory.

Replacement scrum-half Florin Surugiu used the amazing atmosphere to his advantage immediately after the 44-10 defeat, feeding off the goodwill of the crowd to propose to his girlfriend Alexandria. Thankfully she said yes and Inpho Photography captured the moment brilliantly.


Everyone online loved it almost as much as the couple themselves.
