Video shows Wales v South Africa pitch intruder being drenched with beer by furious supporters


New video footage shows the man who invaded the field of play during Wales v South Africa getting absolutely drenched with alcohol on his way out.

The spectator had caused uproar by climbing over the Principality Stadium pitchside barriers in the final quarter of the game and waving his arms to the crowd when on the field.

The incident actually ruined a potential try-scoring opportunity for replacement Liam Williams, who had to move around the invader and the steward who tackled him to the ground.

The “idiotic” act, according to Bryan Habana, prompted furious boos from inside the stadium and condemnation from the TV pundits at the game.

And now footage has emerged of the intruder being utterly soaked with pints of alcohol by annoyed supporters as he was escorted from the ground.

Led away by three staff members, several pints of liquid can be seen aimed in his direction while one in particular manages to well and truly soak the man from underneath his face.

Mark Williams, Principality Stadium manager, said of the Wales v South Africa intruder: “We condemn this type of behaviour in the strongest possible terms. He was intercepted and immediately escorted from the stadium and handed over to South Wales Police.”

Wales rugby legends have since reacted to the incident, calling it “outrageous” and “disgusting”, while both Wales and South Africa camps have given their thoughts. Read more here.
