A rugby league player has become a video sensation after he was filmed avoiding a tackle by producing a stunning back flip over the opponent.
Quindan Smith was captured by a spectator leaping extraordinarily over the opponent, avoiding the incoming tackle in the process.
The grassroots tournament in Australia truly saw a moment of magic from young Smith, and luckily for us all, it was caught on camera.

He received the ball from out of the ruck and quite breathtakingly lured in an opponent, before back flipping over him.
He was, unfortunately, tackled seconds after, but left his foes in awe for a few moments and one teenager bewildered at what had just happened.
The crowd reacted as you'd expect, and later that day, he gained more attention on the Facebook page.
The page posted the video and captioned it with: 'Play of the day goes to this fella at the Kununurra Nines.'
Also, the acrobatics were hailed as: 'The greatest thing ever seen on a footy field' by the league.
The kid looks like a great entertainer, although not all the responses were so positive.
You can see the footage below.
The feedback from the video contained some comments eluding to the dangers involved with this sort of stunt.
One spectator said: 'What's impressive about that? Could have seriously hurt himself and got whipped out...'
Another comment said: 'What did he even achieve? It's just a flip.'
Smith had been spotted jumping over cars before the tournament by spectators, but none of them could have imagined he'd somehow be doing it in a match.
