Video: Samoan rugby player becomes a laughing stock after ridiculous dive

Have you ever heard two Samoan villages laughing in unison? Watch this video of one of the worst sporting dives you are likely to see and unusually it's on a rugby field.

Simaika Mikaele, falls to the floor dramatically and starts rolling around after an opposition player swings a punch but misses during a rugby sevens game between villages Vaiala and Vailele.

Both players square up but fail to land a blow the reaction of the crowd and the referee are fantastic as they just burst into laughter at just how ridiculous the dive is.

Mikaele used to play Sevens for Samoa and is known for being a teak-tough tackler but this clip does nothing for his reputation.

Watch the clip above.
