NRL fans were left in the lurch after noticing an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction during the Penrith Panthers’ 22-10 win over the North Queensland Cowboys on Sunday.
Half an hour after the NRL game at Panthers Stadium, Penrith fullback Dylan Edwards passed the ball to Billy Burns, who was tackled by Coen Hess.
But when Burns tried to get up, his shorts fell to the side and accidentally exposed himself.
Viewers quickly noticed the accident, and photos of the wardrobe malfunction began to circulate on social media.
“Billy Burns is now called Dick Burns,” a Twitter user wrote next to a photo of the 21-year-old.

But in another blow to Burns, the referee awarded North Queensland a penalty for obstruction after accidentally running behind a teammate.
Cowboys coach Paul Green took great pride in his team’s fight, especially his teenage rookies in Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow and Asi.
Tabuai-Fidow proved why he was considered a star in the making when he defeated seven defenders on a sparkling 70-meter run for their first attempt.
“We saw that attempt, we know he’s capable of it. He has to get a lot of confidence from that, from a good side, ”Green said.
It was also an impressive debut for Asi, who last minute spoke to partner Jake Clifford in the halves.
The 19-year-old hails from the Keebra Park High School rugby league factory and arrived at the club over the summer with a train and trial deal.
Earlier this season, Asi was upgraded to the NRL squad and then received praise from champion playmaker Andrew Johns for a handful of intoxicating games against Penrith.
“He was not doing well for the season. That was a real shock to him. We used to walk between the players and he was asleep, ”Green said of Asi.
“But he fought through it. He was on our development list earlier this year.
“He has a good character.
“The opportunity doesn’t seem to take him by surprise, and I thought he came to the game tonight and had some really good games there, was not afraid to support himself.”
Now that Michael Morgan is still at least three weeks back and Valentine Holmes remains in the long run, the Cowboys will need to continue their youth.
“My job is to teach them, but teach in a way that doesn’t take away their confidence every week,” Green said.
