'Dancing rugby player' video from URC game watched by 20 million people

By Dylan James

The video of a dancing Stormers "rugby player" has become one of the most watched videos the sport has ever produced.

South African dancer Wiaan Laing's performance has gone down a storm on TikTok, with many viewers initially thinking Laing was an actual Stormer's player joining in with the cheerleaders.

The clip came out at the end of April and was an instant viral hit. Since then, it has amassed 20 million views across multiple TikTok accounts. The most viral clip has 13 million views and counting. It is one of the most widely viewed 'rugby videos' on the video platform.

Laing's strong physique had spectators fooled, thinking that this could actually be a DHL Stormers player with incredible choreography. Each move is perfectly in sync with Beyonce's 'Single Ladies' and it really is brilliant.

The performance was part of the half time entertainment supplied by DHL Stormers at a United Rugby Championship game, and lasted three minutes.

If his electric performance wasn't enough, he put the icing on the cake by finishing with the splits, as you do.
