Mark Andrews gets nailed by Dan Hyde in 2004 Barbarians match

Mark Andrews gets nailed

This is a great hit on Mark Andrews by a young Dan Hyde of England. It's the Barbarians playing against them at Twickenham, and as far as I remember, this was South African Andrews' last international game.

At the end, they gave him a chance to convert a kick, but he missed hopelessly and almost took out the touch judge.

Great hit even if he did have his back turned. Andrews got up with a smile on his face.

Nah, that is Corry. You can tell by the HUGE shoulders, and the way he sort of lumbers into the tackle.

im convinced thats corry too, for the reasons above. barnes always gets names wrong hes an idiot. and corry is massive in his upper body but has pretty skinny legs lol. still a beast though and the most under rated 4-8 forward n england

It's Dan Hyde. It was a very young experimental England side and quite a few dropped have since dropped off the radar. I think Hyde left Leeds when they were relegated and is now playing in ND1. Corry seemed pretty enormous when I met him.

If I remember rightly, Hyde recently failed a drugs test at his ND1 club
