Huge Samoan hit against the Bulls

Huge Samoan hit against the Bulls

Willie Lafaele gets sent off for this massive high hit against the Bulls in last weeks warm up game in South Africa.

The Bulls won 35-23, but that didn't prevent the Samoans from putting up a good fight and tackling hard all night.

Tackle? What tackle?Tackles involve these things called 'arms' and wrapping them around the ball carrier.That was high and a shoulder charge. Hell I'm half surprised he didn't try and throw a swinging forearm in for good measure.

Lovely Hit, But Only Problem i can see is the lack of a wrap, but it does look like he hit the deck to fast. (back row)

Speaking as a back, so feel free to disregard this...I thought that was a pretty terrible tackle - he made no attempt to wrap and was far too high. Look at the recipient's head snap back at impact; that's just not right. Fair enough, in rugby you probably expect to get a few hits like that, but that doesn't change the fact that it could knock the bloke out, and is potentially dangerous - I think it was right he got a yellow card.
