Springboks lose to Saracens: Fan scoops £250,000 for crossbar kick

The Springboks racked up there third loss of the tour against Saracens rugby club at Wembley Stadium ,but it was Stuart Timmer who scored big time and stole the show.

Sorry if you thought this was a post about the actual rugby, but we are so kak right now that im not even gonna bother. Springboks lost 24-23 if that helps.

Stuart Timmer walked away with £250,000 during half time for kicking a rugby ball 30m and hitting the crossbar.

Stuart went old school and removed his shoes to kick in his socks. He was chosen out of 47 000 fans who entered the Sarries Crossbar Challenge.

24 year old Stuart  still lives with folks and  plays hooker for the Welwyn RFC fifth team, but its this little gem that almost brought tears to my eyes:

Love your work Stu.
