This video shows the moment an over-excited Exeter Chiefs fan was tackled to the ground following Exeter’s last grasp try against Gloucester on Saturday.

The video shows Gloucester player Freddie Burns slam the fan to the ground just after Don Armand’s score.

The incident happened just two minutes into the red at Sandy Park, putting the hosts within a point of the Cherry and Whites with goal-kicker Gareth Steenson’s conversion still to come.

It was at this point that the Chiefs supporter, named as Chris Kellow from St Austell, ran onto the pitch and was welcomed by Gloucester star Burns.

Mr Walton said: “I'm an Exeter Chiefs supporter and filmed this clip as things were so tense on the try line with zero on the clock.”

In the event Steenson pushed his conversion wide and the Gloucester escaped with a one-point victory.
