Rugby World Cup ‘s***house’ does Ronaldo’s ‘siu’ celebration against Portugal

A Welsh rugby star channelled his inner Cristiano Ronaldo to stick it to Portugal during their World Cup clash on Saturday.

Louis Rees-Zammit scored Wales' first try in a fairly comprehensive 28-8 victory over their Iberian opponents, which saw them move five points clear of Australia at the top of Pool C, and hilariously pulled out the 'siu' celebration to really rub salt in the wounds.

Portugal are competing at their first ever World Cup tournament, and they fared better than most expected them to against a Wales side who reached the semi finals in 2019. Some fans suspected they were spurred on by Rees-Zammit's celebration, but others argued it was the ultimate display of "s***housery".

"Louis Rees-Zammit did the Ronaldo sui celebration after scoring a try against Portugal that is savage," one supporter wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

"Louis Rees-Zammit you f***ing s***house," said another, while a third commented: "That is class-A wind-up material haha love it." A fourth added: "And the s***housery of the tournament award goes to Louis Rees-Zammit after that Ronaldo celebration."

Ronaldo is inarguably Portugal's greatest ever sporting export and his iconic 'siu' celebration has more or less been sewn into the fabric of modern football, with players from all levels of the game mimicking it.

Rees-Zammit, meanwhile, has been tipped to be one of the young stars of the Rugby World Cup and his performance against Portugal got him off to a pretty good start. The 22-year-old Gloucester star has already earned 25 caps for his country, scoring 55 points.

England's rugby team will be aiming for glory in France, with Umbro supplying their kits for the tournament. It is the first time that the supplier have been handed the chance to produce the kits, with a traditional white home shirt emblazoned with the iconic red rose.

Following their crucial 32-26 win over Fiji last week, Wales are well-positioned to advance to the knockout round. A victory over Australia next Sunday would move them clear at the top, with just a win over minnows Georgia standing between them a guaranteed first-place finish in the pool.
