Brian Lima bone crunching tackle on Derick Hougaard

Brian Lima bone cruncher on Derick Hougaard

Arguably one of the hardest hits you'll ever see on the rugby field.

19 Year old Derick Hougaard gets a taste of Samoan rugby from 'The Chiropractor' Brian Lima at the 2003 World Cup. Don't know how he got up from this one.

Nice pass Joost...

5 world cups. And his hit against the Boks was ridiculously hard. Managed to injure himself.

To guy saying he got coached by Brian Lima when he played for Munster: That's obviously bullshit, Lima never actually played a game for munster, he just signed a contract and changed his mind (about playing for Munster) a few weeks later.He didn't take part in any form of training with the squad. I don't even know if he met the other players. My God, you're so sad for leving that bullshit comment. I feel very sorry for you.

love the way after lima gets up from the tackle (see slo mo replay) he looks around as though to say, "who's next?"

Please. Lima is a disgrace to the game. I think that was as close as he ever got to a legal tackle in his whole bloody career.

Lima's problem it's that he is too dangerous... ask Mirco Bergamasco

This guy is truely a fearless tackler, This is possibly the best tackle I have ever seen. Timed it so well. I wish I had the same insticts in defense as Lima does. he is one player you know would never shy away in defense.

Whoever said he is a Disgrace as a player is a joke. He is a very pyschical player and puts his body on the line. Its a contact sport i have seen him make plenty of legal tackles, just like any player sometimes high shot are accidental.

P.s I have noticed that samoans seem to be very hard hitters
