Video of the Week: Itoje’s unique block

Date published: January 5 2017

It’s that time again for Video of the Week, bringing you standout footage you may have missed over the last few days.

You might remember last week we look at a footballing mishap from Robert Barbieri, but this week’s offering is slightly different from Saracens’ win over Leicester last weekend.

Realising he would not have enough time to block Owen Williams’ kick in time, Maro Itoje decided to use his feet in a legal move.

Take a look (and listen to referee JP Doyle’s explanation.)
