As sports fans, we’ve all been there before. You decide to grab some food or some tasty beverages at a live sporting event and you have to make the trip back to your seats to enjoy them.

Most of the time, it usually goes without a hitch but one Irish rugby fan had the unfortunate luck of losing some adult beverages because of a rogue rugby ball to the head.

The incident came during an Irish Premiership match-up between Saracens F.C. and Harlequins F.C as an older fan was exiting a tunnel with two full beers in his hands near the field.

Watch as the ball comes out of nowhere and causes the fan to drop both beers after he takes it off the noggin’:

He’s a trooper though…he laughed it off like it was nothing.

    A real Irishman never spills a drop.

      That’s ’cause it’s already been consumed before he leaves the bar.
