Anton Leonard gets stiffarmed

Anton Leonard gets stiffarmed

The Bulls veteran strongman Anton Leonard gets a stiffarm from his opposite number, Esra Taylor of the Highlanders, to bring him down after he bumps off a defender.

It certainly worked, as Leonard dropped right away. Very well spotted by the ref.

This type of 'accidental' stiffarm is becoming more and more prevalent in rugby. It can be as effective as a punch, but it's easier to hide so more guys get away with it. Not this time though.

Blink and you'll miss it. Well spotted by the ref. Ouch.
