Pitch invader prevents Wales try-scoring chance vs South Africa as Williams forced to check run to avoid tumbling fan

A PITCH INVADER prevented Wales from creating a try-scoring chance in their Autumn International against South Africa in Cardiff.

A man sprinted onto the field at the Principality and Liam Williams was forced to check his run to avoid the tumbling fan.



The scores were tied at 15-15 as the hosts broke down the left wing with 63 minutes on the clock.

But as the ball was fed out wide, the dark-haired men was seen in Williams' path.

A stadium security official caught up with the intruder and tackled him to the ground just in front of Williams which forced him to check his run.

Wales had worked the advantage from a lineout just outside the Springboks' 22.

They worked it wide when the rare incident took place.

Furious fans inside the ground booed the man as he was led away by security staff.

One disgruntled supporter even threw a beer at him.

The reaction was equally vitriolic online – especially as South Africa went on to win the game 23-18.

Danny Palmer tweeted: "That moron pitch invader potentially cost Wales a win against South Africa today, didn't he?

"Safe to say I don't have anything good to say about the lad."
