The San Francisco 49ers are making a statement in Pittsburgh, and they’re having some fun doing it.
The Rugby World Cup is currently going on in France, so 49ers’ Tongan safety Talanoa Hufanga decided to pay tribute to the event by performing a rugby-like lateral after an interception against Kenny Pickett.
Unfortunatley, it was a forward lateral. So rather than getting all those extra yards, the Niners were actually penalized on the play.
That doesn’t seem to matter, though, as Kyle Shanahan’s club has a very comfortable lead late in the game.
