A moment of excitement propelled Aaron Woods into social media folklore, when he could not stick the landing when he jumped on a pack of team-mates after celebrating a try.

The match was Game III of the 2016 State of Origin series, and Michael Jennings had just scored the buzzer-beating try that gave the VB Blues a comeback victory.

Woods sprinted over to his team-mates to join in on the excitement, but miscalculated his leap of faith not only in front of 61,267 people at ANZ Stadium, but the millions of people watching all over the world.

The social media response was immediate, with creative memes being made along with the endless tweets and articles.

Unsurprisingly, Woods found the funny side of the situation, and was able to laugh about it in the sheds after the game, along with posting one of the memes to his Instagram account.
