Willie Le Roux had a moment to forget on Saturday afternoon after he dropped the ball in the try area with no opposition player in sight.

The South African full back was making his European debut in Wasps' Champions Cup quarter-final against Leinster in Dublin.

With the English side trailing 8-0 in the first half some brilliant footwork from Kurtley Beale saw Le Roux go clear with no Leinster players in his wake.

Rather than dot the ball down under the posts the Wasps flyer opted for the type of flamboyant dive that Chris Ashton has been criticised for in the past.
