Japan Rugby 7s Player Fails With Swan Dive Try (VIDEO)

Kosuke Hashino's attempt to add gloss to Japan's Rugby 7s victory over Italy spectacularly backfired when he dropped the ball during an attempted swan dive try.

With Japan 26-5 ahead, Hashino theatrically dove over the line, but the ball squirmed out of his arm. At least he saw the funny side.
