Watch: South African rugby player going viral cause he scares so easily Ruan Smith

Ruan Smith might be a great rugby player, but he certainly scares easily.


Brisbane, Australia – A video of the rugby player is quickly going viral online with almost 2 million views in just a few days (and possibly because it is so funny).

Ruan-Henry Smith (born 24 January 1990) is a rugby union player originally from South Africa. He is currently signed to the Queensland Reds team in Super Rugby where his teammate, Taniela Tupou, has put together a collection of funny moments where he scares the rugby player.

Smith made his Super Rugby debut for the Western Force during the 2012 Super Rugby season. He previously played for Western Province in South Africa’s Vodacom Cup. He played four seasons at the Brumbies in Super Rugby after being signed to their extended playing squad in 2013 Super Rugby season.

Smith went to Japan after 2013 Super Rugby season where he played three seasons with Toyota Verblitz. He initially signed with the Tokyo-based Sunwolves for the 2018 Super Rugby season but, after his mother fell ill, he was released on compassionate grounds and returned to his home in Brisbane where he joined his twin brother Jean-Pierre at the Queensland Reds.

Check out the hilarious video below but be warned it contains strong language and a lot of screaming:

  1. Sadly the video is not visible to me. Maybe because I’m in Cambodia.

    Someone should send a copy to Average Andy who works for Ellen DeGeneres. She’s always scaring the s*&#t out of poor old Andy.
