You go in for a high five and, er, totally miss.

In a Super Rugby match over the weekend, Ray Lee-Lo was celebrating a try scored by his team and went in for a high five with his teammate Blade Thomson. (Side note: is Blade Thomson the most rugby name ever?)

Lee-Lo’s palm landed on Thomson’s chest and Thomson’s palm was left flailing and ultimately wound up hitting him in the face.

Fortunately, the whole thing was caught in slow motion and can be enjoyed in all its glory here.
