Shoot-out agony for Netherlands - but in rugby!


Netherlands have famously struggled at penalty shoot-outs in football through the years, and it seems they fare little better in rugby.

The extremely rare event of a rugby shoot-out came to pass in the European Under-20 Championship as Belgium took on Netherlands.

The match reached full-time with the scores locked at 30-30, leaving kicks at the posts as the only way to separate the teams.

And there was agony for the Dutch, as their neighbours prevailed after five efforts apiece.
