The 4-year-old was pretty chuffed with himself.

IT’S NOT EVERYDAY that a member of the public gets to take part in a major sporting event.

And this four-year-old took full advantage when he found his way onto the pitch at a charity legends match between Australian rugby teams Queensland and New South Wales.

The child made his way onto the pitch after being separated from his mother, after which a New South Wales player handed him the ball an encouraged him to set off on his 100+ metre dash.

Members of the Queensland legend side got involved, throwing in mock tackles as he made his journey up the pitch.

He even managed to score a try at the end of his run.
