Stade Francais were crowned Top 14 champions on Saturday night and prop Rabah Slimani decided on a unique way to celebrate…which didn’t quite go the way he expected.
After beating Clermont 12-6 in what was a rather dull affair, Slimani decided to spice things up a bit during the post-match celebrations.
The French prop decided that creating his very own ‘slip n slide’ was the best option. However, things didn’t all go to plan.
The 110 kg prop can be seen sliding along the sudsed up dressing room floor only to crash straight into team mate Laurent Sempere and the Bouclier de Brennus, the trophy they had worked all season to try and achieve.
The impact of the collision sees Sempere fall on the floor with the Bouclier de Brennus while prop, Slimani continues his slide.
We give Slimani ten out of ten for invention. However, his execution wasn’t quite as good.

This video was nearly more entertaining than the final itself in which the Parisian side had Morne Steyn to thank for as he kicked all of their 12 points in the victory over Clermont.
