In just a few days, a humorous compilation video of a rugby player being scared again and again by his friends has gone viral, with nearly 2-million views and counting.

Ruan-Henry Smith (29) is a rugby player originally from South Africa who currently plays for the Queensland Reds of Queensland, Australia. Smith is not only known for his sporting abilities but also how easily he scares.

His teammate, Taniela Tupou, put together a compilation video of all the scares Smith has fallen for, and his hilarious reactions.

Although poor Smith has been given a number of good frights, he is always cheerful in the clips – truly a good sport.

Check out the entertaining video below but be warned, there is strong language and shouting.

Smith is a talented player, having debuted for the Western Force during the 2012 Super Rugby season and playing for the Western Province in the South African Vodacom Cup. He also played for the Brumbies, another Australian team, in the Super Rugby for four seasons and was signed to their extended playing squad in 2013.

Smith went to Japan after the 2013 Super Rugby season where he played three seasons with Toyota Verblitz and he has now returned to his home in Brisbane to join his twin brother Jean-Pierre playing for the Queensland Reds.
