This rugby mannequin challenge is the best sporting one yet

Madison women’s rugby team have created a mannequin challenge showing all the essential elements of the great game of rugby.

They’ve got line-outs, tackling, mauling, kicking… what else could you need for an awesome challenge?

The mannequin challenge has gone from 0 to 100 miles per hour in a matter of moments. Celebrities and public figures have been joining in – even Hillary Clinton filmed one, shortly before her election defeat to Donald Trump.

The premise of the challenge is that people “freeze” in position while the camera weaves in and out of the scene. At the end of the video, everyone starts moving again.

Like most internet crazes, this will probably pass, but let’s hope this video shines a light on the awesomeness of women’s rugby.
