Super Rugby is often credited with producing some of the finest players and moments of ingenuity seen on a rugby field in elite level competition.

However, it also tends to produce some of the more comical moments seen on a rugby pitch, with this weekend providing us with the latest in a long line of bloopers. 

In a game that showcased the best of both worlds, the Bulls and Melbourne Rebels played out a 70 point thriller that saw 10 tries scored during the 80 minutes.

Despite the exhibitionist rugby on show, it was this moment of ignominy from Bulls full back Warrick Gelant that really captured the public's imagination.

Elsewhere, there was a stunning game of rugby played between the Chiefs and the Lions in New Zealandthat showcased everything right about Super Rugby.

South African side the Lions upset the 2014 champions on their home turf on a scoreline of 36-32, managing to withstand a late onslaught from the Chiefs.
