TOULOUSE BEAT TOULON 13-12 over the weekend in the French Top 14, making themselves league leaders in the process. For Florian Fritz, the result came as more of a relief than anyone after he wasted this ‘gimme’ try-scoring chance in the second half.

With referee Alexandre Ruiz playing a penalty advantage, the France international centre somehow ignored a huge overlap to his right and chipped in behind the sparse Toulon defence. While the communication from his teammates would have to be questioned, Fritz’s decision-making was hard to believe given the situation and the numbers outside him.

Is this the worst example of decision-making you’ve seen or are there worse offenders out there?
