Rugby player dives over wrong line

A rugby union player in Devon thought he had scored a try - and celebrated in style by diving over the line in extremely muddy conditions.

Brixham's centre Tom McLean slid over the 5m line instead of the try line and was promptly piled on top of by the opposition, Barnstaple, in their National League 3 South West match.

Barnstaple won the match 6-0.
