Origin 2016: World laughs at Aaron Woods' hilarious crash

THE best moment of last night's State of Origin wasn't the Blues last-minute win, or the Maroons collecting the shield -- it belonged to Aaron Woods.

After Michael Jennings scored the match-winning try for NSW in the final moments of the game, the Blues prop hit top speed in his rush to be part of the celebration.


Unfortunately he took off a little early and a little off-target, his aerial hijinks -- and his dramatic fall -- captured by live-broadcasting high-definition cameras.

In real time it was funny.

In slow motion it is legendary.
