Rugby player punts ball straight into trash can

The Turnstile

We've seen plenty of trick-shot videos where dudes throw Frisbees or basketballs into impossibly tiny spaces from dozens of yards away. But it's rare that such a feat happens in the course of, you know, an actual game.

And yet, that's exactly what happened during an Aviva Premiership rugby match between the London Wasps and the Exeter Chiefs. Elliot Daly of the Wasps (has there ever been a more perfect name for a British team?) punts the ball downfield and right into a trash can. Not bad, Mr. Daly, not bad. Alas, the Wasps would lose the match, 37-24, but they won all our hearts. Or our trash cans.
