Rugby match delayed as young mascot drives off with ball
It’s the kind of stuff we’d have dreamed about as a kid, and now one child has become an instant icon after driving a toy car out onto the pitch at a Rugby League game.
A new viral clip shows a young boy heading out onto the field of play to give the ball to the players and start the game, only things didn’t go quite as planned.
It’s been reminding people of the tiny remote control car which became the surprise hit of the Euros last year – but this one had an actual driver and looks incredibly fun to drive.
The mascot, brilliantly nicknamed 'Whizzy Rascal' was in charge of delivering the ball during the Warrington vs Castleford clash in the Super League, but he went the wrong way not once, but twice.
