Goose joins British rugby game, attempts tackle

Posted By Staff

Date: May 4th, 2017

gooseA British rugby game saw the emergence of a new superstar in the sport: A Canada goose that wandered onto the field and attempted a tackle.

Nathan Swarbrick posted a video to Instagram showing the goose running onto the field Saturday during play of a Rugby Football Union National League game between Caldy and Sedgley Tigers.
