    WATCH: Bulls scrumhalf gives Will Genia a 'shibobo'

    2019-05-17 14:06

    Cape Town - Rebels scrumhalf Will Genia was on the receiving end of a unique rugby 'shibobo' as his side lost to the Bulls in Melbourne on Friday.

    The Bulls started their Australasian tour with an impressive 32-17 victory over their Australian opponents and scored four well-worked tries along the way. 

    There was a comical moment in the build-up to the Bulls' fourth try, however, when replacement scrumhalf Embrose Papier released his backline. 

    Genia had positioned himself to make the angle for Papier's pass as difficult as possible, but the 22-year-old Bulls youngster had other ideas.

    Papier, instead of taking a step backwards before passing to free himself up, spotted the gap and simply passed the ball through Genia's legs. 

    The term 'shibobo' is used in soccer when one player plays the ball through another player's legs - or nutmeg's him.

    The result was a try for wing Rosko Specman in the left-hand corner as the Bulls completed their first win outside of South Africa since 2016 in style.
