A pitch intruder shocked the crowd Saturday night during the Pacific Test in western Sydney when he knocked down a guard with a massive blow before being arrested by police seconds later.

While most pitch intruders try to dodge incoming guards, the young man turned on a vintage Samoan sidestep — he ran full-on toward the guard, using his arms as a bumper bar.
The shot sent the guard face first into the turf, while the intruder continued to cheer as he ran back to the stands and was hoisted back into the seats.
But from there it went downhill for the pitch invader, with fans booing two cops who chased him almost immediately.
Within seconds he was arrested and handcuffed.
The video was posted to TikTok and received 31,000 likes with the caption: “Unluckyyy uce” – where uce comes from the Samoan word “uso”, meaning brother or sister.
New South Wales police told Daily Mail Australia that the man had been fined for entering the pitch without permission under the Sports Venue Act.
Fines can be as high as $5,500 and violators can face life bans from sporting venues.
Police said four adults and three children were detained after the Samoa v Cook Islands match.
